The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dawnguard DLC is out for Xbox 360, and brings vampires.


Ever wanted to be a vampire in Skyrim? You’ve got another change in the Dawnguard downloadable content

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is getting its first downloadable content pack, which is something I’m not entirely sure I want considering the game is basically endless. The DLC, called Dawnguard, brings a vampire trying to eternally block out the sun and achieve worldwide domination through the Elder Scrolls.

The Vampire Lord is called Harkon, and the game is based around whether players want to become a vampire and joined Harkon or stop him with the Dawnguard.

It’s the first DLC pack for Skyrim, which was arguably the most anticipated game of 2011 and sold an incredible 3.4 million copies in its first two days on sale (that’s for an RPG). The Xbox 360 version has been the go-to copy, partly because the PlayStation 3 offering was filled with bugs. However, Bethesda has issued patches and improved performance.

It was also many critic’s Game of the Year, because of the open world and refinement of a formula Bethesda has been trying to perfect over the past decade. It also had solid competition in Portal 2, Batman: Arkham City and Saints Row: The Third to name just some titles. And 2011 was full of plenty of sequels, which are expected to better than the original (and they were).

Intimidation

I didn’t buy into the hype for Skyrim, partly because I knew that the game as so big and needed plenty of time to be a rewarding experience.

French, Italian, Spanish and German players are getting the DLC in mid-July but to tide them over Bethesda has rolled out mounted combat and Kinect support for shouts. Shouts are spells in-game which buff players, such as increased speed for a brief period.

The Dawnguard trailers asks whether users want to be coming a vampire or join the Dawnguard, and shows vampires with wings going super fast, which is pretty crazy. Vampires of course are allergic to the sun, and therefore have to move at night and suck blood to survive.

The Dawnguard DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is available on the Xbox 360 for 1600 Microsoft Points over Xbox Live.
