VIDEO: Official Skyrim: Dawnguard DLC trailer revealed

Gaming, Tech Digest news

Looking to get back out onto the icy tundras of Bethesda’s epic RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but somehow feel you’ve seen all the massive world has to offer? Well prepare to lose a fair few more hours to last year’s oft-crowned game of the year, as Bethesda have just revealed the first trailer for the first DLC pack for the game, Dawnguard.

And, from what we can see in the trailer, all those early vampire predictions have proved correct. It now seems that you’ll be able join “Team Edward” as a creature of the night, sucking the blood of unsuspecting citizens of Skyrim.

It also looks as though it’ll lead to a fairly gruesome transformation for your character, who will sprout wings and take on an altogether demonic look.

Elsewhere in the trailer we’ve spotted a whole slew of new enemies to slay, and large new environments to explore.

We can’t wait! But, unless you’re an Xbox 360 gamer, you’re going to have to hold out a little longer, as the DLC will be hitting Microsoft’s console first as part of an exclusivity deal.

Dawnguard will be available for download for 1600 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE at some point over “Summer 2012”, with PC and PS3 versions following soon after.
