Bethesda has officially released the first major expansion to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, called “Dawnguard,” for English speaking territories for 1600 MS Points ($20) on Xbox 360. The DLC will hit Germany, France, Italy and Spain in mid July. No exact date was given for the PS3 and PC versions. 

The Dawnguard expansion lets players pledge himself/herself to the order or the Dawnguard or the Vampire Lord Harkon, who is hell bent on destroying the sun. The expansion will offer a ton of new skills and perks, and is said to last roughly 20 hours.

Lastly, here’s a little note we were passed by Bethesda explaining how to start the new content if you plan to pick up the DLC.

“Once Dawnguard is installed, if you’re level 10 or higher you’ll hear rumors about the Dawnguard from guards in major cities. You may also be approached by a courier who will give you a note about the Dawnguard.  Otherwise, if your character is below level 10 or you wish to find the Dawnguard on your own, you can seek out the Dawnguard headquarters roughly east/southeast of Riften. It can be reached by a small cave through the mountains.”

Happy hunting!
