Ready to lose several more weekends to dungeon exploration and looting? Good, because the first expansion—sorry, DLC—for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is now out for Windows. Dawnguard arrived on June 26 for the Xbox 360, and Bethesda managed to stay completely mum about the schedule for the PC and PlayStation 3 versions. Then, yesterday, the company updated its blog with a link to Dawnguard's Steam page. I guess that beats a release date announcement.
Dawnguard is all about vampires, but not the wussy Twilight kind. Here's the blurb from the Steam download page:
The Vampire Lord Harkon has returned to power. By using the Elder Scrolls, he seeks to do the unthinkable - to end the sun itself. Will you join the ancient order of the Dawnguard and stop him? Or will you become a Vampire Lord yourself? Featuring an all new faction questline and locations, the ultimate choice will be yours.
Oh, those wily vampires, always trying to plunge the Earth into perpetual darkness. When will they learn?
