Open-world everything simulator Skyrim has had some pretty middling DLC to date – except on the PS3, where it hasn’t gotten any. The next bit of DLC could draw me back though – because it could include flying dragon mounts.

Data-miney types have hacked apart the latest update for the game and have found a few interesting references buried within its files. Here are some of em, showing that the DLC is likely to be called “Dragonborn.” It also specifically mentioned DLC for the PS3 – so maybe all the burned Playstation Gamers might actually be able to play this one.

Interestingly, some of the locations referenced within these files point to some areas that border Morrowind. The best find though relates to the possibility of Dragon Mounts, as shown by these files:

I enjoyed Skyrim (having played it on a system that works) – but I got a little bored of it after a hundred or so hours. One thing that would definitely draw me back though is FLYING A GODDAMNED DRAGON!

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
