Skyrim: Dragonborn is the next DLC pack from Bethesda, according to players who have accessed the game’s update files. The files point to a Morrowind location, dragon mounts and more.

OXM reports that gamers mined the update for clues as to the next DLC pack, and found repeated references to ‘Dragonborn’ and ‘DLC2′ among the file names.

Dragon mount files were also uncovered:

There are also new quests that take place in the locations Solstheim, Telvanni, Castle Karstaag, Raven Rock and Miraak Temple, as well as new armour types.

The Solstheim reference is significant, as it is an island located northwest of Vvardenfell and east of Skyrim, and it is where many of the Dumner fled following an Argonian invasion.It may not be Morrowind proper, but it’s a start.

The leak comes after Zenimax registered trademark files for ‘Dragonborn’ in reference to DLC software.
