Beta testers on Skyrim’s Dawnguard expansion have begun detailing (isn't that a bit erm naughty?) the add-on’s content.
The story focuses on a vampire lord called Harkon who is intent on using an Elder Scroll to blot out the sun. You’ll have the choice of either joining Harkon’s gang or the Dawnguard, a group of vampire slayers.
If you join Harkon you’ll be able to become a vampire lord. The process works in much the same fashion as being a werewolf and unlocks an ability called Vampiric Grip that drains the health of enemies while suspending them in the air. You’ll also be able to turn into a cloud of bats.
There’s downsides, however. Being a vampire means that NPC’s will attack you on site so you’ll have to change into your human form.
Meanwhile, joining the Dawnguard offers you access to new weapons, including the crossbow. They’re slow to download but are always primed to fire and can stagger targets. As a Dawnguard you can also hire armored trolls as followers.
In addition to all this, the add-on brings a new Dragon Shout. It’s called Soul Tear and allows you to steal a victim’s soul and then raise them from the dead as your companion. Also, there's a summon anywhere skeleton horse.
Check out the full vampire and new werewolf perk trees below.
