Vampire Lord Harkon has returned to power and must be stopped from using the Elder Scrolls to destroy the sun in Skyrim’s first DLC, Dawnguard. Promising 15 hours more of game play, players can join the ancient order and stop him or become the Vampire Lord themselves.
New features in Dawnguard include:
New Weapons, Armor, Spells, and Shouts Use new weapons, armor, spells, and shouts, like the Soul Tear shout to rip the souls from your enemies and turn them into your minions.
Become a Vampire Lord Choose to side with the vampires and become a Vampire Lord yourself. Hover across the ground, turn yourself into bats, levitate your enemies as you drain their life, and more.
New Werewolf Perks Werewolves now have their own upgradable perk system including Bestial Strength, Animal Vigor, and Savage Feeding.
New Locations and Creatures Players can choose from two new fortresses to upgrade and call home. Discover lost valleys and travel to a new realm of Oblivion, the Soul Cairn. New creatures include Death Hounds, Gargoyles, Armored Trolls, and all new vampires and dragons.
Change Your Appearance Players can visit Riften’s Ratway and visit the woman who can change their appearance.
Mounted Combat Having a mount is finally worth a damn because you can now do melee and ranged combat while riding a horse.
Dawnguard is available exclusively (for now) on the Xbox 360 tomorrow for 1600 Microsoft points or $20.
