First Skyrim expansion unleashes the vampires (Dawnguard trailer)

Bethesda has unleashed the debut trailer to the first downloadable expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The Dawnguard DLC, which will run $20 exclusively on Xbox Live this Summer, introduces the opposing vampire and Dawnguard factions, presumably allowing you to choose which to side with. For those looking to walk a darker path, winged vampiric transformations and blood-sucking await. Also, a dragon dives into a frozen lake. It is unknown at this time if the dragon was high on skooma or flying backwards.

Looks like even more of those Game Jam features are making their way into Skyrim. GamesBeat will be getting some hands-on time at next week’s E3 in Los Angeles, CA. Be sure to check back then for interviews and coverage of Dawnguard, The Elder Scrolls Online, Dishonored, and many more.
