The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim ‘Dawnguard’ trailer released

Unable to wait until E3 next week, Bethesda has released the official trailer for Skyrim Dawnguard, the new expansion coming to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Dawnguard, the first game add-on for Skyrim, will be available first on Xbox 360 before heading to the PS3 and PC at a later date.  IT will be available for download for 1600 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE this Summer.  There was no mention of other platforms in the trailer.

The trailer shows of some new features like the crossbow, which was rumored to be an added feature.  Other previously uncovered files suggested Snow Elves, a Snow Prince, and new vampire feeding animations will be included in the Dawnguard add-on.  The Snow Prince could be the voice that is speaking, although it looks like Dawnguard will have some sort of demonic creature looking content.  That undead-looking horse looks amazing.

It appears as if the content surrounding Dawnguard will be focused around destroying some demonic, undead creatures – or perhaps choosing the darker route and joining this evil spirit to take on the Dawnguard and bring and end to the "tyranny of the Sun".

We should find out more at E3 next week when we meet with Bethesda so we'll be sure to keep you updated!
