Bethesda Reveals ‘Dawnguard’ Skyrim DLC (With No Details)

As promised, Bethesda has revealed…something…about the first piece of DLC it’ll be offering for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. See the above image.

It’s called Dawnguard, and…oh, wait. That’s all we know. As this post on the Bethesda Blog shows, there’s nothing more than the reveal image right now. Bethesda pledges that more info will be available at E3 2012, and you can bet your ass we’ll be there to check it out and ask a bunch of questions.

On the blog post, it also mentions that the DLC will be available this summer — on Xbox 360. Likely that means Bethesda has cut an exclusive deal with Microsoft for the content to hit that platform first, the same way Activision and Microsoft have a deal that brings Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 DLC and Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC to Xbox first. If that’s the case, expect about a month of lag time before Dawnguard hits Playstation 3 and PC.

Game Front reached out to Bethesda for more information.

While you wait for a PC release, you can always check out the mess of Skyrim mods we get access to that console players can’t. Start with this list of our favorites.

Vampire’s, Mythic Dawn and the Psijic Order. All of these should be available for player’s to join the factions or do quests for them. New spells and a higher level cap is a must of course.

Along with the ability to remarry (console) and be able to respec ones perks…

Correction: Skyrim does not have a level cap but instead has a skill cap. You therefore want them to raise the skill cap and add perks to accommodate that.

I hope that they add the ability to remarry and other general game enhancements in future patches and instead leave the meaty content to the DLC / Expansions. I’m hoping for much more game play hours in new areas and / or worlds

I forgot to add. You can become a Dragon Summoner or Dragon Caller. Use telekinesis on Dragons and manipulate them at your will. Like, flying as the Dragon and going in an out in 1st or 3rd person view for a period of time, using fire breath also picking up villagers and fly away then hurl them threw the air and eating them. “Even Better”, You can ride Dragons that you Summon or Call out to and fly any were in Skyrim.
