The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s first expansion drops in just under three weeks.

Bethesda’s Todd Howard provided the date while speaking to GT.TV.

The DLC pack is expected to provide ten to 20 hours of new content. It adds in two new factions, vampires and the Dawnguard which hunts them, as well as mounted combat, new items and weapons, most notably the entirely new crossbow, as lovingly detailed in the trailer. We’ve embedded that below, in case you’ve forgotten it, and gaze in wonder on some new screenshots.

The pack will first arrive on Xbox 360 for at least 30 days of platform exclusivity before heading to PC and PlayStation 3. Bethesda has promised more expansions will follow on Dawnguard’s heels.
