Skyrim: Dawnguard Trailer and Release Details

May 31, 2012


Bethesda Softworks has released a debut trailer for the upcoming Skyrim addon, Dawnguard. Spoiler alert: for any of you who predicted it’d have to do with vampires, you were on the money.

From the looks of it, Bethesda is giving players a lot more moral choices to make than in the vanilla game, allowing us to choose to join the creatures of the night to oppose the Dawnguard, or vice-versa, getting recruited by the organization to wipe out this family of vampires. Other highlights in the trailer include new creates, mounted combat, and the addition of crossbows for an even more Van Helsing-like experience.

The downside? Depending on what platform you’re on, you may have to wait an extra month to play the addon: Dawnguard will be available exclusively on Xbox 360 for a period of 30 days, after which it will presumably be released for PC and PS3.

What did you think of the trailer? Are you stoked to play this extra content? Sound off below!
