The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will soon be receiving the Dawnguard DLC on the Xbox 360, while PC and PS3 gamers will have to wait about a month. Bethesda has had Skyrim beta updates debut on Steam around a week or two before the full launch, and is rewarding 360 gamers with a beta for Dawnguard. Only a limited amount of people will be able to join the Dawnguard beta and it looks like not even Bethesda could have guessed at the sheer number of applications. According to Bethesda, 0.5% of all applicants received an invite to the Dawnguard beta, with the studio saying the demand is "overwhelming." More invites could be coming out, but right now Bethesda has not said anything definitive once this first wave is handed out. The first wave should be all done by today and I can say for PC gamers everywhere, I envy the beta testers.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Dawnguard will launch for the Xbox 360 on June 26th. No date has been set for the PC and PS3 versions just yet.
