20 minute Skyrim Dawnguard gameplay for PC, PS3 users

As most of you are probably aware, Dawnguard has finally arrived for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It has been eight months in the making, but Skyrim players on Xbox 360 finally have their first piece of post-release DLC to enjoy.

PS3 and PC players on the other hand, simply have to wait or perhaps in PS3 users case – drool. PC players may not be too bothered about Dawnguard for the moment with so many mods to enjoy, but there’s no doubt that PS3 users are the ones who are mostly feeling the heat and still scratching their heads over why this isn’t out at the same time across all platforms.

Nevertheless, Dawnguard is out on Xbox 360 only for the time being and early impressions are that it is highly addictive and very fun to play. We do have something to ease the pain for PS3 and PC onlookers though – notably in the form of a 20 minute walkthough video courtesy of VG247.

The video gives you an idea how you can first start the Dawnguard quests, as you’ll see that you’ll automatically initiate conversation with Durak who first informs you about the Dawnguard and the vampires, which he asks you to help them to kill. You’ll then be asked to go to Fort Dawnguard to find out more, which is located in south east of Riften.

The gameplay will continue all the way up to the point where you begin conversation with Serana, a mysterious female vampire who first asks you to help her get back to her family’s home. Is this the sort of content that you want to pay $20 for? This is just a taster of course, but we will have other walkthrough videos for you during the week.

If you are playing Skyrim on PS3 and PC, let us know how you are coping with the fact that Xbox 360 players have access to Dawnguard at the moment and you don’t.

WOW they are just shoving it in the ps3 users face by showing a 20 min video when you can just go to youtube and view a 1-2 hour video of gameplay a**holes

I hate the wait, but if it means less bugs the better. Skyrim already has a lot of bugs and glitch for the PS3, so the less the better for me since I’m a PS3 user. Oh and I can’t do that slow montion bow thing on my game lol, okay with a warrior, can anyone tell me why because I love using a bow.

If you need proof that Bethesda has lost touch with its fanbase, inexplicably and immediately following one its most universal successes, look no further than their next TES release – TES: Money For Us Online. Its an unfortunate reality that there is much more money to be made in MMOs, especially those with a good license like TES (See SWTOR). Selling out PC users for Microsoft dollars makes no sense to me strategically, so I think this is a money play. Anyhow, this is a bitter pill for me, if only because I can see the next pill…

I am a ps3 skyrim player and I am at the edge of my seat still waiting on any news about the release date ! Personally I can’t wait. I would love to have some fellow skyrim players as friends on psn so if you want to discuss skyrim or ask tips or anything like that add Neenam1 🙂 hope to speak to yous soon.

WHY did Bethesda devolop this dlc for XBOX???! Why could’nt they do it on the pc?! It’s more easier to patch bugs (ehmm mod communty) and it’s MUCH easier to convert this to ps3 and xbox. What Were They Thinking?! the xbox is a lot harder to patch bugs and it’s even harder to convert!

If anyone disagrees or if anyone could explain my why they didn’t make this dlc for the pc, i’d be a little happier.

PS3 user and pissed. Summertime would have been the perfect time to release Dawnguard for all systems. Better for us, (summer vacation, more time to play without feeling the stress of school) and better for them, too. Oh well…

as long as it comes out for the ps3 during the summer holidays then i wont be too annoyed with the extra wait. However, i will be really annoyed if it comes out in September (after the hols) as i will not be able to get it until next year because i dont have the time to go on the ps3 during university semesters. It would be nice to get it soon, ps3 users have had to put up with a lot of lag and many glitches and we dont have a console to get round these things like the… Read more »

I play skyrim on a PC and im just as pissed as all of you are but this is business therefore the person who pays the most money and invests the most money gets the “make all the other people super pissed cake” in a business you never say no to a bribe where all you have to do is release the DLC on one platform then release it to the others such as PC and Ps3 users trust me i hate this just as much as you guys do but this is business

Why would I want to watch someone else play it xD its like dangling a cookie in front of me but not letting me have it. I knew xbox would get it first. All it does is up the rivalry i see between ps3 and 360 users. I’m annoyed but eh. Its ok, Ps3 will get it soon enough. Probably a few months. Until then I will grit my teeth and continue playing the same quests and caves.

I don’t think it’s fair that the x-box users get Dawnguard first. The PC users get all the mods and all of us PS3 users only get a Skyrim background. Bethesda should have released Dawnguard to all of the systems at the same time.

im not too concerned, i still need to save up money to get the DLC. I still find the fact that Xbox gets exclusive rights, but im usually late on getting DLC for any game haha *cough* call of duty *cough*

so stupid that Bethesda has yet again screwed us PS3 owners but giving Microcrap access to the DLC first. just proves that they don’t care about their entire fan base just the companies that are willing to pay for exclusive rights to first release. They gave us the better graphics and sound they could at least give all three platforms the DLC at the same time. makes sense to make all that revenue at one time so they can make more DLC rather than give the small number of 360 players the sole realease so far.

Whyyyyyyy must us ps3 users wait to play?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?! It looks too awesome to wait for 😛

I’m on PC and the fact of not having Dawnguard yet doesn’t really bother me. I have a mod that gives me freaking lightsabers. Lightsabers. The truth is, we’ll get Dawnguard eventually, they’ll never get mods.
