There hasn’t been much going on this week in the world of gaming. And after our Skyrim beta application was denied, we didn’t even have the chance to play Dawnguard, Skyrim’s first DLC. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have news for you. So what do we know?
Well as we’ve already said before, Dawnguard adds a new quest which involves you either fighting with the Vampires or those who oppose them. There are new weapons, Dragonshouts and abilities. There are also two new perk trees, one for Werewolves and one for Vampire Lords. But unlike the main game, you do not scale these trees by spending points. Oh no. If you’re a vampire, you’ve got to consume blood, either fresh from the neck or by using a Drain life spell. Werewolves, on the other hand, have to eat hearts to rank up. Yum.
