Skyrim owners will know that Bethesda has been hard at work on the first DLC content for the game and today, it seems like we may have a huge clue as to what the first DLC expansion could be called.
It has been revealed that Bethesda has filed a trademark for the name ‘Dawnguard’ and considering that we haven’t heard anything regarding this term as of yet, obvious speculation has begun that this is specifically related to DLC.
The term Dawnguard may be of immediate interest to those of you who have played Oblivion, as within that game there is a cult group that goes by the name ‘Mythic Dawn’, who have ties to Mehrunes Dagon who is in Elder Scrolls lore, the Daedric prince of destruction.
Another possible relation to the name Dawnguard could be linked to the Redguards, who you may remember are a race of warriors in Oblivion. If Dawnguard is related to Mythic Dawn, then that could be pretty huge in itself though, as it could mean that the first DLC will see players revisit locations from Oblivion – aka nostalgia overload.
It’s all very mysterious at the moment and we can’t wait to find out what Dawnguard entails. Bethesda are the only ones with the answers of course, so how will they react knowing that their potential secret has been partially blown wide open? Will they now keep us waiting even further so that speculation can brew even further on potential DLC, or will they put our minds at ease and confirm that Dawnguard is in fact the first expansion pack for Skyrim?
