E3 revealed some additional details about newly released DLC, Dawnguard. For Xbox the date should be 26 June 2012, but no official date confirmation for PS or even PC. In Dawnguard you will be the main actor of a new story-line wrapped around Vampires, and promising 15-20 hours of additional content. The new package should feature new skill set which is available to you while in Vampire form, for example summoning Gargoyles or transforming yourself into “cloud” of bats. Seems that the skills will be using your Magicka pool, so magic based characters should have an advantage but nothing is known about other play-styles like Stealth play for example.
DLC should include new locations (Castle Volkihar, Fort Dawnguard…), weapons (crossbows and Ta-Dam – Dragonsbone Weapons) or for example monsters as Armored Trolls, Legendary Gragons, Vampire Lords etc. Lycanthropy perks are also added, which promises a Vampire vs Werewolf quests?
Seems that the main clash will be between Dawnguards – Vampire hunters and Volkihar Vampires – yes you guessed it, Vampires. If they will continue like this I will replay the whole game as a Vampire ArchMage. In my opinion the official trailer itself promises a better story than the main “Dovahkiin” line.
