If you were planning on being productive this week, you probably shouldn’t. In case you missed out on the announcement yesterday, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim receives its highly anticipated downloadable content today. That’s right, Dawnguard is officially available.
The downloadable content is available for $20 or 1600 Microsoft points, and will be just shy of a 600MB download. Not sure of the premise of the DLC? Oh, it’s just Vampire Lord Harkon trying to shut off the sun. No big deal.
Dawnguard™ is the first official game add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® – the 2011 Game of the Year. The Vampire Lord Harkon has returned to power. By using the Elder Scrolls, he seeks to do the unthinkable – to end the sun itself. Will you join the ancient order of the Dawnguard and stop him? Or will you become a Vampire Lord yourself? Featuring an all new faction questline and locations, the ultimate choice will be yours.
