Skyrim: Dawnguard

Continuing with Bethesda's plan for world domination, we have the recently announced Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim expansion, Dawnguard.  Join in with vampires to steal the Elder Scrolls in an attempt to blot out the sun, or join the Dawnguard to become the coolest vampire hunter since VanHelsing.  We don't have any hard evidence of what the expansion will bring us but some things are made apparent from the video.

  • Mounted Combat - One of the most asked for features since Oblivion, it looks as though we can hack and slash from our horses at last.
  • New Character Models - Much like werewolves in Skyrim, it looks as though you can gain the power of the Vampire (Demon?) in Dawnguard.  Shouts seem as though they are also possible while in this form and much like werewolves, you will need to feed to maintain this extra power.
  • New Weapons and Clothing - Crossbows!  Capes!
  • Swimming Dragons? - Yeah, I don't know either, but anything to make dragons more interesting / difficult is OK by me.  
Unfortunately, there's also no word on when to expect this expansion.  Planned for sometime this summer, we have until roughly August to wait.  PC gamers and PS3 owners (all ten of you) will have to wait an additional 30 days from the release of the expansion.  Much like the days of Splinter Cell, Microsoft has exclusive one month rights to this DLC.

Prepare yourselves adventurers.  The tyranny of the sun shall end!
