The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC coming to Xbox 360 this summer

Bethesda has officially announced Dawnguard as the first major add-on for their hit role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls: V Skyrim.

The reveal comes from Bethesda’s own blog, which has a poster of the DLC and the message, “Coming this summer to Xbox 360. More details at E3.” Bethesda has been teasing fans for a very long time about Skyrim DLC. Yesterday, the company hinted that we would get a revelation today, and we have.

Sadly, we will have to wait for more information. Only the poster with official title has been released with the cryptic message above. Meaning we’ll have to wait till E3 to see what this new DLC will contain.

Though, it wasn’t like fans ever had to worry about Skyrim not receiving a healthy dose of post-release content. Bethesda’s known for further expanding their products with the release of additional expansion packs and downloadable content. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’s DLC/Expansion pack, The Shivering Isles, came with an entirely new continent to explore, among new armor types and magic. Likewise, Fallout 3 received similar treatment after its release. Skyrim’s more than likely to get more of the same.

As to why it says Xbox 360 and not “PS3, Xbox 360, and PC,” is because Bethesda has gone into another deal with Microsoft. The same deal was struck for Fallout 3 where all DLC would be released on Xbox 360 first for a period of time before making its way to other platforms. In Fallout 3’s case, it took a whole year before PS3 owners got any of the DLC.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim released November 2011 to glowing reviews and multiple Game of the Year Awards. Since its release, the game has shipped more than 10 million copies worldwide.
