By now you've probably had time to become a vampire and settle down with some kids in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. But rumors are circulating that the next downloadable content expansion will take the game back to its roots in Morrowind with dragons.
Users on the Bethesda Forums (via Eurogamer) looked into the beta source code for the 1.8 patch, and found possible hints of what's to come. The notes include mention of Bonemold, Chitin, Nordic, and Stalhrim armor, mounted spell casting, dragon mounting, and several new locations. The new locales are all said to take place on the island of Solstheim, which first made its appearance in the Elder Scrolls 3 expansion Bloodmoon.
Bethesda trademarked "Dragonborn" in September, lending some credence to the rumor. Shacknews has contacted the company regarding the potential DLC, and will update as more information becomes available.
