The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dawnguard Details

There's a big old preview of Dawnguard on Kotaku detailing what to expect from this upcoming expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, saying it: "Sounds Like a Proper Old-School RPG Expansion." They came away from a conversation with Bethesda's Todd Howard with a load of information, all presented in easily digested bullets. Here are just a few points:

  • The main quest has two different tracks, one for Vampire Lord and one for Dawnguard.
  • Dawnguard will offer 10-20 hours of gameplay, depending on how you play.
  • Even though the two story tracks are separate, they'll come together at various key points in the story. "Whatever the Macguffin is," Howard told me, "both sides come together around that point, and then it diverges afterwards.

20 hours is less than what most full games give you these days...so I'm not sure what there is to complain about.

Guessing you meant more...(?)

With the exception of the game it is an expansion pack for, you can probably count games released in the last 12 months that take 10+ hours one hand. Probably less.

Well sure, but then you'd have to include Skyrim in that list, since you can beat the main storyline in under 10 hours...

Oh, you want to explore other stuff as well, just like all those other games you would have had to include in your 'one hand' list ; )
