Dawnguard is first Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC

Bethesda is horrible tease. Just hours after patching Kinect support into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the studio announced the first downloadable content expansion for the game. Skyrim: Dawnguard will be out this summer.

An infuriatingly oblique teaser at the Bethesda blog announced Dawnguard with an image of a glowing-eyed Dovahkiin. The only details included in the post were that the Skyrim DLC would be available sometime in the summer on Xbox 360 and that further details would be discussed at the E3 conference in June.

Shortly after the post went up at the Bethesda blog, the studio said via Twitter that the DLC would be exclusive to Xbox 360 for an unspecified period of time. Microsoft’s Xbox 360 was promised exclusive support of two Skyrim downloadable content packs before the game even released. An August 2011 press release from Bethesda said that the exclusive window for this DLC would be 30 days, but it’s unclear if PlayStation 3 and PC owners will get their hands on Dawnguard at the same time.

Skyrim DLC has been teased throughout April. On Apr. 16, Bethesda posted an image of a grimy, long-haired man on Twitter, with the cryptic phrase “Tomorrow.”
