Dawnguard finally has a confirmed release date. You'll be able to sink your teeth into Skyrim's first add-on from next week, Tuesday 26th June.

Confirmation comes direct from Bethesda. The studio tweeted, "Dawnguard will be out Tuesday for 360 in English. FIGS 1.6 patch for 360 coming next week and Dawnguard FIGS will be out mid-July."

FIGS stands for "French, Italian, German, Spanish." Read our latest Dawnguard preview here.

All this DLC and this game is still at 1000G? What a shame, this could of been a great game to have as a 2000G.

@6 I think it was on the last Skyrim news post, but one of the Beta testers posted the achievements in the comments section, which I think added up to 250G. X360A just haven't updated the list yet.

@#6 - There are 10 new achievements in the DLC that total 250 points, so after next Tuesday, Skyrim will have a total G-score of 1250.

Wow that was fast. I didn't think this would be out for at least another month. I guess it doesn't really matter to me seeing as I don't own the game yet but still. I think I'm just gonna wait for a GOTY edition to get it since I already h e a huge backlog of games to get through

It's closing on a year since the game has come out and this is the first DLC we're getting. I can say that I'm disappointed with that, but deep down I feel it's quality over quantity because I'd sure rather have this than the crap DLC's that SR3 and MW3 had/are still having. Can't wait!

Wish they would add some kind of strategy/management feature into the game. Like the Real time settler mod, or send fighter's guild members on "missions" in Oblivion. Managing a keep or something would be cool.

Also some more Dark Brotherhood quests where the deaths should be accidents also Oblivion style.

Question: I have a game breaking glitch in Skyrim where I couldn't complete the Companions storyline, and so I cannot be cured of my Lycanthropy, does this mean if I pay my 1600 points for Dawnguard I can't do any of the vampire stuff?

You don't need to spend that much.. Use a credit card to get smaller increments on your Xbox 360 rather than walking into a store.

Dude I seriously don't think it needs to be compared to MW3...two different companies with two different morals, bethesda actually cares about it's customers. MW3 is nothing but average maps, worth it to some, but definitely not me
