Skyrim: Dawnguard Arrives on Xbox 360 Tomorrow

The final hours of the tyranny of the sun are at hand.

The vampires you'll meet in Dawnguard don't look like the usual breed of pale-skinned chump that turns up now and then in various dimly-lit recesses of Skyrim. These guys are big, they're bad, they fly and they've got a seriously nefarious plan in the works to bring permanent night to all of Tamriel! The only thing standing between them and eternal darkness: The Dawnguard!

Aside from a looming Very Big Decision - will you join the Dawnguard or become a Vampire Lord yourself? - we don't actually know where you'll go, what you'll do or who you'll do it to in this thing. But we do know that you'll be able to do it soon - tomorrow, in fact, because that's when the first official add-on for the game arrives on Xbox Live. Skyrim: Dawnguard will be available for 1600 Microsoft points, which translates into about 20 bucks, and will initially be available only in English language territories. French, Italian, German and Spanish versions of the expansion are planned for mid-July.

As for when the PC and PlayStation 3 versions of Dawnguard will be out, we actually don't know that either. It's kind of a tradition for the 360 to get a 30-day exclusivity window so July 25 wouldn't be an unreasonable expectation, but one guy who may or may not be in the know (okay, it's Mike) said he heard it would be a 60 day period. Maybe. Whatever it turns out to be, when we know, you'll know.

Well pull my beard and call me Abe Lincoln. I gots me some vampires to chop!

Time to get me a crossbow, methinks. Real surprised it's coming out literally tomorrow.

I must get Microsoft points... Goddamn it microsoft. 1600 Points again!? AHHHH Fuck off! A $20 card here is only 1400!

Wake me up in about a month or two when it comes out for the PC.

oh fuck you bethesda.

The 360 is the worst console, why would you ever give them it first?

On second thought, it also attract the most dumbasses who sit around and bitch... Smart move Bethesda, Smart move.

This was (not very clearly, apparently) a joke. Please stop quoting me. >.<

Are we taking bets if it will break the game, and how long a patch will take to fix it?

Who am I kidding, I'll be buying it in a day.

*looks at above post...

sheesh

Already had me code when the Mass Effect news broke, now I'm in quandry over which to download first!

I could buy it tomorrow...but i've plan on getting skyrim for PC (when i get another one), then buying it and giving my 360 version to my friend so...

Do i just wait upwards of two or more months til i get the funds or cave in and waste 20 bucks to get it tomorrow just to buy it again later... Decisions, decisions, how do i want to screw myself?

Pfft, vampire lords?

I'd much rather be Lord of my Pack, thank you very much.

Just...

No.

OT: I'm interested to see what exactly the factions are gonna be like.

One of my characters is a vampire, but she isn't into enslaving humanity and destroying the sun.

Well, that's what I get for being among the PC gaming master race.

This DLC (expansion?) certainly looks quite interesting, I can't wait to get my hands on it :D

figment of mind:

Nah, just be excessive like me and buy it on both.

Captcha: oontz oontz - Oh hell no!

PC/PS3 master races. 360 scum!

PC master race I can buy, but considering the PS3 is the console that seems to get shafted at every opportunity, I'm in inclined to disagree.

Especially since Skyrim works better on the 360 than the PS3.

You never hear about how "everyone hates the PSN's community" though, which gives it double points! Plus the fact that Skyrim has worked fine since I got it for me and actually stopped working completely for a friend of mine who owned it on the 360. :o

And we all know that we base everything that happens to me as a fact for how life works.

Quality of the community =/= quality of the console.

Anecdotal evidence =/= actual evidence.

If you don't like the 360, that's fine, but don't do this.

Because it's hardly a desirable attitude.

If its 60 days till it comes out I will seriously lose it.

Fucking Microsoft.
But at least I got mods, the console, the Creation Kit, and the workshop.
Also a month or two of bug fixes, and work done on it too!

HAHAHA!

Witty Name Here:
Pfft, vampire lords?

I'd much rather be Lord of my Pack, thank you very much.

Well, my three main playthroughs are a good imperial "ranger" type character, an evil, sneaky khajitt, and a mage who is...undecided.

So, I'll make the ranger into a werewolf, and he'll join the dawnguard, the khajitt'll join the vamps, and the mage...will run. Like he usually does, because as much as I love using magic, I kinda suck at it, and some vampires are hard-f***ing core.

What a good way to alienate a good chunk of your customer base Bethesda. I'm sure that won't negatively affect you in the future.

For me this won't matter in the slightest, as even with close to 200 hours across two characters I still have so much content to cover. There is still one stronghold I haven't even set foot in yet. Content is definetly not something this game lacks, so I don't need to pay top dollar for more content. I'll wait till there is a sale.

Jeez. Someone is in a less than desirable mood today.

I still hate Skyrim's Nord mascot- that helmet looks so damn silly. I make a habit of throwing all the iron helmets I find off cliffs, just so I can ensure that future generations will have to wear a different style.
Anyway.

Super pumped for crossbows- I might remake my Morrowind character, that adorable elven crossbowwoman. Yeah, she's gonna roam the night, slaying vamps with a rarely seen fervor, that's for sure.

I hate you and everything you represent.

You're just jealous that I get a crossbow AND superior gaming.

Wow, man. Come on. I thought we'd all grown out of this. D:

---------------

Anyway, that kinda sucks that the 360 version comes out first, but we all knew this from before the game even came out. Business is business, I suppose.

I have a 360 version laying around somewhere. Maybe I'll get it for that version for a "test drive" of sorts; at least until the PC version comes out and I can play it modded. :D

My plan for dawnguard is this:
Get a crossbow,
Kill some dudes.

As for who those dudes are, I don't care. As dovahkiin, I have to solve everyone elses problems, and seriously, fuck those guys. if its such a big thing, why can no-one else do it?

I have a character all set up for tomorrow:

Paladin
Dawnbreaker is her primary weapon (Turn Undead Explosions!)
High Archery w/ perks (Crossbows!)
Is a werewolf (Lycanthropy perks!)

Going to fuck some vampires up.

Too serious, guys. Way too serious.

Well...Not really...

20 bucks? I was hoping 15. I guess I have to wait until I build up enough free MS points then.

I want this sooo bad, but my 360 is broken :'(

No, it's totally fine, I don't mind this at all. Knowing from the start that we would have to wait for DLC was ok, because we get mods, and that totally makes up for having to wait for half of my holidays for this DLC to come out. I am in fact totally convinced that this is the case and not at all bitter in any way whatsoever.

Well, now you know. It was mostly a satire on that sort of attitude. I felt it was necessary for the topic (every topic needs a hater, even if its a satirical one :D).

My Stormcloak Werewolf (who is currently leader of the companions) will most likely join the Dawn Guard, after all he may like the night, but night all the time is pure madness! Plus Skyrim for the Nords effects vampires as well.

I also have a sneaky thief character that I might make into a vampire.

Wait, you weren't really being a hater, you were just pretending, but, you do still not like x-box 360?

My head hurts.
Why can't you just be a collosal tool and make it simple? It's hard to get in to it with reasonable people.

I don't really enjoy the 360 system, no. The controller actually makes my hand hurt, I've had some severely bad run-ins with the community and my friend's 360 kept RROD-ing while we were trying our Legendary run of Halo 3, but it's not some sort of demon instrument and I exactly don't hate it enough to actually warrant such an attitude. :P
