While I'm sure many of you have racked up countless hours in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you're probably itching for some new content. Dawnguard, Skyrim's first add-on, is now available on Xbox LIVE and is sure to satisfy your appetite (at least for the next little bit).   

Offering over 20 additional hours of gameplay, the Dawnguard add-on will focus around Harkon, a Volkihar vampire lord who has returned and, with the power of the Elder Scrolls, is bent on plunging Skyrim into eternal darkness -- literally. You're given a choice: join the Dawnguard, an order of vampire hunters set on stopping Harkon once and for all, or become one with the darkness.  I think you know which side we're veering towards. 


Dawnguard will offer plenty of new skills and abilities as well. By becoming a vampire, you can transform into a vicious flying vampire beast, similar to becoming a werewolf (sadly, you can't be a vampire-werewolf hybrid). You're also given the ability to turn into a cloud of bats, reanimate corpses for a limited time, improve night vision and use Vampiric Grip, which  suspends enemies in the air while draining their health. Not too shabby! This add-on seems like it's going to be a lot of fun and will offer players even more variety than ever before.  I can't help but wonder what the next add-on will bring. 


If you're ready to become the hunter or hunted start by listening for rumours from NPCs or ask Hold Guards about the Dawnguard vampire hunters.  This will steer you in the right direction and thus begins your bold new journey! 


The Dawnguard add-on is available on Xbox 360 for 1600 Microsoft Points.  While Dawnguard isn't available for PSN or PC, don't fret, it will be available at a later date.  If you don't own Skyrim, seriously, what are you waiting for? Check it out below:
