How did they end up doing dragon riding?

I won't be getting DB until later today, but I really want to know how they ended up implementing riding dragons. Is it totally free, like riding a horse? Is it on-rails? Or is it simply a fast travel carriage copy?

But you can order the dragon to attack, lock on, etc. And you can fire spells.

So you choose a destination and then the dragon flies there? Hmm. Can you do master spells on them? 'Cause I want to rain down lightning-y doom upon the hapless mortals who dare anger me.

That would be sweet.

How do you order it to attack? I can lock onto enemies but it just flies around doing nothing.

To move to a different place you have to use the map and fast travel there. Other than that you fly around in a circle above the area your at and can only get the dragon to attack things that are attacking you. Its terrible.

Is there no way to travel without fast travelling?

Unfortunately you can only use shouts from the back of a dragon. So you could call in a lightning storm.

Anyone who seriously expected a dragon flight sim was reaching . That would take longer to develop .

Nobody believes the official spokesman but everybody trusts an unidentified source .
