Game Expansions for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn
RPG 04 December 2012
The final story-driven DLC expansion for the acclaimed 2011 RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by Bethesda Softworks. The Dragonborn expansion takes place on a cold island called Solstheim, located northeast of the Skyrim province. The place should be known to the fans of the series from the second expansion to The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. The story focuses on the mysterious Miraak – the first Dragonborn, wielding similar powers and abilities as the main protagonist. Hundreds of years ago he had gone mad and vanished from the material plane. During the game, the protagonist is tasked with stopping their mad predecessor from retaking the rule over the island. One of the most important novelties in the game mechanics is the possibility to ride dragons and use them to travel. What's more, the expansion offers many new quests as well as several new types of enemies, weapons, armors and powers.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Hearthfire
RPG 04 September 2012
The second, rather unique, DLC for the fifth installment in The Elder Scrolls series, an RPG series by Bethesda Game Studios. The expansion entitled Hearthfire does not introduce any new storylines and hardly any quests. Instead, it focuses on an entirely new feature which is the possibility to build a house and found our own family. Thanks to it, we can build the manor of our dreams (or several) without using additional editors. It is a complicated process, though, because it requires buying a plot of land, designing the building on a drafting table, gathering materials and processing them into construction materials. Having erected a house, we can furnish it, and then, for example, cultivate the garden or breed fish, bees, or cattle. Moreover, we can even adopt children that can be played with but also have to be brought up and protected.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dawnguard
RPG 26 June 2012
The first large story expansion to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the fifth installment in the cult RPG series developed by Bethesda. The expansion called Dawnguard focuses its story on the return of a powerful vampire lord – Harkon - who intends to cover the sun by using an Elder Scroll and a mythical weapon, and bring eternal darkness to the world. The titular order of vampire hunters is standing in his way. The main protagonist of the game must temporarily take a break from hunting dragons in order to join one side of the conflict. Depending on the choice, new paths open before the protagonist – he can transform into a vampire or he can gain access to interesting weapons and spells. In addition to new areas to explore, new quests to complete and new enemies to defeat, the expansion introduces the possibility to fight on horseback, the option to change the look of the protagonist and new skill trees, which – what’s interesting – aren’t assigned for experience points, but for killing opponents who have them.
