The first DLC pack for last year’s PC game of the year, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, has hit Steam. RPG adventurers are now able to download the vampire-packed Dawnguard to extend the already gigantic adventure further.
Dawnguard sees the Vampire Lord Harkon having returned to power, seeking to use the Elder Scrolls to destroy the sun itself. Will you join the Dawnguard to stop him, or side with the dark Lord himself?
However, Bethesda have still yet to reveal a release date for the PS3 version, citing performance issues as the reason for the delays.
A post on the official Bethesda Blog explained: “We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse.
“We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.”
Dawnguard is already available for the Xbox 360 at 1600 Microsoft points, and can be grabbed for PC through Steam for ¬£13.99 by clicking here. Both ID Software and Bethesda Games catalogues are on sale through Steam right now, with Skyrim itself 50% off at ¬£17.49.
