Looks absolutely fantastic, and not a little epic. Option to play as a winged vampire lord? Count me in...

Skyrim: Castlevania Edition lol

Seriously though, it looks pretty damn awesome
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1353d ago
Now... if they head whips and crossbows then yeah... thats castlevania.

Crossbows look cool though. Wonder how much this will be
CashColeTrain1337  +   1353d ago
@Nimblest-Assassin it's 1600 MS points which is 20$ so i'm going to guess this could be fairly huge. (unless us consumers get kicked to the side again)
PerpetualMathx10  +   1353d ago
this looks really radd and dark, does remind me of that castlevania style, must be a day for dark iterations of games considering the injustice game looks dark and serious haha.
-GametimeUK-  +   1353d ago
Looks fantastic? To be fair I am a little underwhelmed. I do love me some Skyrim so I may pick it up if it is priced right (which it probably won't be). I was just hoping for a different theme. Let's hope its enjoyable and the content feels jam packed.
Tr10wn  +   1353d ago
It will be 20$ that seems more than right to me, after all is a Bethesda DLC so you should probably put 50 to 80 hours in that DLC alone.
Genghis  +   1353d ago
I like a more themed dlc. Then you can keep adding more interesting story. Maybe you'll like the theme of Hearth Fire more...
lastdual  +   1353d ago
The gothic vampire theme is great, but I do hope we get a decent amount of new land to explore as well.

So far this looks good, but not as expansive as Shivering Isles, and since Bethesda had talked about making Skyrim's DLC more on the scale of an expansion pack, they've set the bar pretty high.

Eh, who knows. Looks to me like they're going to make this expansion take place on an island in the north. Could very easily be just as large, or larger, than Shivering Isles.

I'm more concerned with content--dungeons, environmental design, new enemies/abilities, quests, etc.

Yeah it looks great, I just wish they hadn't signed that stupid agreement for timed exclusivity... I hate that no matter what system they choose. All it does is infuriate people who wanted to play it on another system. Besides, if any got it, rightfully it should have been PC players since they've been here since Elder Scrolls 1. :\
LordHiggens  +   1353d ago
How do you people disagree with this statement? Timed exclusives are stupid as hell...this man has a point. A very very good point. Bethesda hates you PS3 and PC.
MrMister  +   1353d ago
The PS3 version is still crippled by slowdown. They really think PS3 gamers are gonna buy this when they havent fixed it?
bigtrucknd  +   1353d ago
I am so sick of getting the shaft from Bethesda they will never get a dime from me. The Kinect can keep it.
xyxzor  +   1353d ago
Nice, just wish the game wasn't so buggy.
LAWSON72  +   1353d ago
The game is far from broken and i have had absolutely no bugs where it ruins the game out all 250 hrs i have played

Spenok  +   1353d ago
If I am reading his comment "xyxzor's" correctly, I don't believe he said anything about the game being broken.

It is definitely a buggy game as he says, but definitely not a broken one as you say.

I don't know the exact amount of hours I have put into it (probably somewhere near 100) and haven't experienced the rimlag a lot of people have run into. However I have seen it on my brothers system. It seems to be the luck of the draw.

Great game, if not a little buggy. Maybe a couple more months in the debugging faze would have helped it, maybe not. Otherwise I am completely satisfied with it.

And now on topic, this expansion looks pretty awesome. Vampire focus and everything.

Hmm, now the real question be a vampire, or to be in the Dawnguard?
xyxzor  +   1353d ago
It's borderline broken depending on the system your playing on.
Christopher  +   1353d ago
Guess we won't hear any word on when this will make its way to PC and PS3 until way after E3 so Microsoft can parade this around on their stage.
user5467007  +   1353d ago
Not after they parade Black Ops 2 around their stage first
Tr10wn  +   1353d ago
This is the reason i brought both version 360/PC, i wont wait to play Skyrim DLC's i prefer it on PC tho.

Denethor_II  +   1353d ago

TheController  +   1353d ago
I could be wrong but, I thought that I read somewhere that it would be only timed for one month.
Christopher  +   1353d ago
That's good news if it's that short. Hopefully we can get a confirmation on that soon. I'm assuming this is just to hype the release during E3, put focus on MS, and then we'll get news on it shortly after E3. If Bethesda wasn't locked into an agreement, I'm sure they'd be telling us the dates now. Luckily, CoD player's aren't forced with this limitation as Activision is allowed to confirm release dates for all platforms regardless of the exclusive early release deal with MS.

skyrim trailer was epic

Two thumbs up!
Colonel_Dante  +   1353d ago
Um... I cant wait BUT... I suggest holding out buying..until you see if its a gamebreaker or not.. if its buggy and breaks something, I wont buy until its fixed.

Bethesda make great games, but only new fans expect their product to be perfect out the box!
user5467007  +   1353d ago
See this is the kind of vampire stuff that should of been in Skyrim in the first place. It should of been a quest line if you decide to become a vampire or rid Skyrim of them.
beerkeg  +   1353d ago
They put a LOT of content into the game, how many other games have half as much? Not many at all. I got my moneys worth with Skyrim, and I'll get my moneys worth with this expansion. More than my moneys worth.

If I had 2-3 games like Skyrim in a year I wouldn't need to buy any other games really. My year of gaming would be full.
admiralthrawn87  +   1353d ago
a lot of games have twice as much in them as skyrim. You are just obviously new to the rpg realm.

They put all of those mountains in the game and waited for the DLC to put in the transformation with flight?

That can't be a coincidence. It's not like vampires are new to the Elder Scrolls games.
RedDead  +   1353d ago
Bethesda puts LOTS of **** content in and saves all the good content for DLC.

Yeah really beerkeg, Skyrim has alot of content, but it's all content that feels the same and thus, the game is repetitive.

SockMaster  +   1353d ago
Looks very tasty indeed, finally gives me an incentive to become a vampire, hopefully they will do the same for lycanthropy in the future too!

Also did you see the moths/butteflys flying around when he opened the Elder Scrolls? Reminds me of that easter egg with the jars, hopefully things could get very interesting!

It almost seems they are going to replace the sun in some capicity so you can become a "vampire lord" at any time of the day, i could be wrong though...Just speculating!

1600? $20?

What happened to that 800 $10 price point Bethesda stated felt more suitable for their titles DLC?
dubt72  +   1353d ago
In all fairness, they did say they were shooting for more of an expansion pack-sized endeavor, rather than the shorter dlc of say Fallout New Vegas. If I can play 20 hours, I don't mind a buck an hour at all.
Slient Knight 9  +   1353d ago
Vampires that don't sparkle, enough said.

Almost makes you not want to kill them.
Trenta27  +   1353d ago
Wait. While I'm getting this for Xbox, is it coming out for PS3? It showed nothing about that.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1353d ago
Yea, i'm pretty sure it's coming to PS3 and PC unless Bethesda wants to start a riot.
NastyLeftHook0  +   1353d ago

yes, its coming to ps3 :)

Dang, for 1/3 the price of a new game, this better have a good amount of content.

I'm not a fan of vampires, though. They kind of suck. (Ha) I'll probably wait a few weeks after this is out before I decide if I want it or not. 'Gotta make sure it will be worth it.

LOL, what animations? He's stiff as a board flying around.

But seriously, there are better animations in Oblivion than those. WTF happened?
BattleTorn  +   1353d ago
For $20 there is something I MUST know.

Do I have to leave Skyrim, and complete the DLC completely to return? Like Fallout 3's (Anchorage/Pitt) and New Vegas's Dead Money, ect.

Is it a segregated location like previous Bethesda DLC?

This will great influence whether I accept their "double" price.
NonApplicable  +   1353d ago
How would anyone know? It just got announced...
Games4ever  +   1353d ago
Firstly,I'm not a fanboy. Have both PS3 and Xbox-360 but, The Witcher 2 beats Skyrim easily. The Witcher 2 is a dark, twisted adult game. Skyrim is a good game for almost everyone over 17. The Witcher 1 and 2 are the only adult games out there.

Sadly CD Projekt are the only game developer who have balls to make a real adult game.
beerkeg  +   1353d ago
While I appreciate The Witcher 2 and CD Projekt greatly, there are game developers 'who have balls to make a real adult game'. Rockstar, Irrational Games, Remedy and many others.

Anyway, The Witcher 2 and Skyrim are completely different games. They are both RPGs, but that's where the similarity ends. And there is more than enough room for them both.
Games4ever  +   1353d ago
Ya there are others to make adult games, but how many others have balls to show a nude woman in a sex scene?? None!

Gets actually a little embarrassed when I play a game which is only for adults, and they are afraid to show a naked body. That's not very adult.!
beerkeg  +   1353d ago
There are plenty of games that have been made by less respected developers that would allow you to see a hell of a lot more than that. There's a whole industry that relies on people who want it.

That wasn't what I thought we were talking about when you said 'real adult games'. I was thinking along the lines of story and theme, not about how many tits were shown.
dubt72  +   1353d ago
I liked the witcher 2 a lot, but it wasn't even close to skyrim, sorry. I was a lucky one that had virtually no bugginess or issues playing it, so I'm sure I have a different perspective on it. But, I'll stick to porn and real-life for my sex, thanks. It's not that big a deal in my gaming.

I know that i'll get alot of disagrees for this, and it's mostly justified but, I'm just not excited for this at all. I played hundreds of hours of Oblivion, hundreds of hours of fallout and new vegas, hundreds of hours of skyrim, and dozens of hours of each portion of DLC. Now im just burnt out and this looks like just more of the same.
Regardless im happy for those of you that arent burnt out because these games are fun and can suck you in forever.

Agree if you're hitting that burnt out wall that I am
Disagree if you aren't and could play a thousand more hours of this and future xpacs.

-Gespenst-  +   1353d ago
I dunno, I'll get it but it looks a little bit sketchy in places. I hope they tidy it up a bit. Animation for the crossbow looks dumb, and the new locations don't seem that amazing. Cool, but not amazing.

I'll probably get it anyway though.

ginsunuva  +   1353d ago
I dunno. $20? Don't compare it to $15 CoD maps to justify it, because CoD maps are overpriced, so you cant use that as a justifying tool
