Skyrim 'Dawnguard' DLC out next week

Bethesda puts a firm date on its vampire-themed expansion

Bethesda has confirmed that the Elder Scrolls: Skyrim 'Dawnguard' downloadable expansion will release on June 26, which was previously 'tentative'.


That date's for the 'English' version - so we presume accounts for US and UK releases - while the French, Italian, German and Spanish-speaking version will be released in "mid-July".

The vampire-themed expansion will arrive first on Xbox 360 - the first two DLC packs for the sprawling RPG will be exclusive to Microsoft's console for 30 days from release.

It'll be available to download for 1600 MS Points (about £13.71). If you missed it, check out a trailer on the expansion are here.
