First Skyrim expansion unleashes the vampires (Dawnguard trailer)

Gaming is in its golden age, and big and small players alike are maneuvering like kings and queens in A Game of Thrones. Register now for our GamesBeat 2015 event, Oct. 12-Oct.13, where we'll explore strategies in the new world of gaming.

Skyrim Dawnguard DLC 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.
