Is Dragonborn the Shivering Isles DLC Skyrim fans crave?

Is Dragonborn the Shivering Isles DLC Skyrim fans crave?

For many, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion served as an introduction to DLC. Bethesda had its misses (horse armor anyone?) but it also some hits, one of which being the beyond excellent Shivering Isles expansion. Shivering Isles wowed Oblivion players when it released back in 2007, and ever since Skyrim was released, players have been asking for an expansion that's on the same scale. So, is Skyrim's freshly-announced Dragonborn DLC the expansion everyone has been waiting for? There's still a lot we don't know, but what we do know suggests that it is.

Skyrim Premium Edition confirmed by Bethesda

Skyrim Premium Edition confirmed by Bethesda

Well this certainly is interesting: earlier today, Amazon Germany outed a Skyrim Premium Edition. The listing stated that Skyrim Premium Edition will come with a number of bonuses, but strangely, it won't include any of the DLC that has been released for Xbox 360 and PC. Bethesda then confirmed Skyrim Premium Edition to Eurogamer, revealing that the game will be launching in Europe shortly, with more details set to follow soon.

Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. Today was a pretty big day as far as news goes, with Apple sending out invites to an upcoming event, which is where we're assuming the company will announce the iPad Mini. Not one to be outdone, Microsoft finally gave us some substantial details on Surface today (including information on pre-orders), and Samsung was right there to put its line up of new Windows 8 PCs and tablets up for pre-order as well.

Skyrim’s next DLC “Dragonborn” might feature dragon mounts

Skyrim’s next DLC “Dragonborn” might feature dragon mounts

PC and Xbox 360 Skyrim players are already enjoying Dawnguard and Hearthfire (sorry PS3 players), but it looks like Bethesda isn't quite finished releasing DLC for its latest epic. A particularly savvy Bethesda forums member has taken an up close look at the code for the Skyrim beta 1.8 update and has possibly unearthed details about Skyrim's next piece of DLC. According to this user, who goes by the name of Mardoxx, Skyrim's next DLC could be called "Dragonborn," and it's taking place in area that isn't actually a part of Skyrim.

Dishonored dev wasn’t pressured by Bethesda to add multiplayer

Dishonored dev wasn’t pressured by Bethesda to add multiplayer

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you likely know that Arkane's new game Dishonored launched yesterday. It launched to critical acclaim too, despite the fact that it's missing one key element that seems to be present in most modern games: multiplayer. Publishers, much to the chagrin of single player fans, are notorious for requiring multiplayer in the games they release these days, but in a new interview with Kotaku, Dishonored director Harvey Smith says that Bethesda never pressured Arkane to include a multiplayer mode.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 4, 2012

Welcome to Thursday evening everyone - just one more work day to go and then we'll have arrived at the weekend. Today we received a pair of invites from Microsoft - one for a Windows 8 launch event happening on October 25, and another for a Windows Phone 8 event happening on October 29. We also learned today that Samsung intends to update the Galaxy S III to Jelly Bean "soon," but sadly, we still don't have a specific date to speak of. We were also told today that HP will be hiring more than 50 developers to work on Open webOS, which is definitely something to get excited about.

Skyrim: Hearthfire now on PC, no new updates on Dawnguard PS3

Skyrim: Hearthfire now on PC, no new updates on Dawnguard PS3

Skyrim's second serving of DLC, Hearthfire, launched on PC today, meaning that eager homebuilders can get to work constructing their dream house (or at least something resembling their dream house). Hearthfire costs the same on Steam as it does on Xbox 360 - $5 - and for that paltry amount, you get to buy up plots of land, collect raw materials, and then use those materials to build a house, which could potentially include things like a greenhouse or an armory. You can also move your spouse into your freshly-built home and, if you really want your Skyrim experience to mirror real life, adopt children.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: September 10, 2012

Welcome back to Monday, folks. We're in the final stretch before Apple's big event kicks off, and with just a couple of days left before everything goes down, the iPhone 5 is making a splash in a big way. The (hopefully) incoming handset was given the title of "biggest upgrade in consumer electronics history" by one enthusiastic analyst today. T-Mobile is offering an "Unlocked and Unlimited" deal for the iPhone even though it doesn't carry the device itself, and we got word today that Apple suppliers have started shipping new 13.3-inch MacBook Pros with Retina Display and a new line of all-in-one iMacs.
