Skyrim Dawnguard As Soon as Next Month

The recently revealed Dawnguard expansion may be coming to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim sooner than expected, reports Joystiq (thanks nin via Shacknews). They quote Bethesda's Todd Howard saying "Tentatively, it's coming on June 26." Since the first two DLC packs for Skyrim will be exclusive to Xbox 360 for 30 days, this means the earliest PC gamers can expect this release is around July 26th. Related to The Elder Scrolls series of RPGs, the Bethesda Blog points to the E3 2012 Teaser Trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online, the upcoming MMORPG based on the series, though this is much more teaser than trailer.

I'm not in love with vampires or with the prospect of flying around looking like Marcus from Underworld: Evolution, so I understand where you're coming from. I expected something that expanded on core gameplay and the main quest(s) of Skyrim rather than adding this seemingly unrelated fluff. Time will tell.

I can understand expecting some core gameplay additions (and there may still be that we haven't seen). I'm not sure however why you would expect something that expanded on the main quest(s). None of the expansions for Oblivion or morrowind did this, and I'm pretty sure that none for Fallout 3 or new vegas did this either (although I'm not as certain about those).

Fallout 3's Broken Steel DLC allowed free-play after the campaign and extended the main quest line a bit. However in that case they actually had a loose end (Enclave was still around, even though they failed to stop you), but in Skyrim the major threat is completely done.
