After installing the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC we went to Whiterun to meet a guard, which is how you start a trigger for the Fort Dawnguard quest, and we met a certain bug for the first time on our Xbox 360. When we walked towards the blacksmith hut we noticed the ground had gone where you normally start smithing, and then guards started falling under the map. This glitch only happened after installing the Dawnguard DLC, and while we cannot confirm if it’s related it is certainly a coincidence.
We have included some quick screenshots on this page, which show what we mean by “under the map“, and this is right after Dawnguard had been installed. It is also worth noting that our version of the game has the latest patch, so this is a bug that is unfixed to date. If this is not related to the Skyrim DLC then we wonder how many users have experienced this issue and if Bethesda are working on a fix, although if it did happen thanks to the new add-on then it will be interesting to see if we find more bugs during our review.
After saving and restarting the game it went away but we have not played for long after this restart, so it will now be interesting to see if we keep falling under the map since installing the add-on. We’ll keep you updated, but in the meantime it would be good if our readers could leave a comment with any glitches experienced since installing the expansion.
