Skyrim will be getting its first major DLC drop with Dawnguard in a few weeks and we've got a preview of the content straight from E3 2012. The DLC will focus on the Dawnguard organization, a group of people who hunt vampires. It'll be up to you if you want to aid them or become a Vampire yourself. Check out a snippet from our preview:
The vampire lord starts with the Drain Life and Reanimate Dead abilities, but an increasing array of powers unlock as it levels up. One of your early basic attacks is Vampiric Grip, which pulls an enemy close while dealing out choking damage. Later on in the tree you'll be able to perform a variety of other vampire-y feats: summon gargoyles, assume an invulnerable, healing mist form, rely on supernatural reflexes to slow down time, and wrap yourself in a cloak of bats that automatically feed on enemies in melee range. There's also a "bats" power that takes the place of sprint, allowing you to zip around quickly by turning into a flock of bats.
