Well, well, well. What can I say? After patiently waiting for Dawnguard for what feels like a lifetime, the time has come when we can download this delightful DLC and play it with reckless abandon! Here is the official line from those boys at Bethesda:

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.

Sounds juicy doesn’t it? I would definitely like to sink my teeth into this meaty slice of DLC delight. You can probably tell that I’ve been taking the whole Vampire Lord aspect a bit too seriously…

Anywho, Dawnguard is now available to download on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1600 Microsoft points. If you’ve got Skyrim then buy it. If you finished Skyrim and then proceeded to sell it, please slap yourself across the face. If you haven’t got Skyrim then please go out and buy it. You know it makes sense.

Toodle pip!
