Dawnguard release for pc
 
For anyone that doesnt already know Dawnguard is out now on steam for 19.99.

Thrasher August 3rd, 2012 00:27

Oh, nice! But $20? Yikes! Does Bethesda think everyone has udders?

We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.
It was the PS3 holding the release up. Four years later and company's still have problems porting and developing for the system. I guess I owe the news sites for complaining why it wasn't out yet on the pc after 30 days.

Well they claim it's a mini expansion but it's just as big as Fallout NV DLC.

Thrasher August 3rd, 2012 00:41

Doesn't seem like there's enough there to justify that price, when compared to expansions like Bloodmoon, Tribunal, Shivering Isles.

$10, now that would be appropriate.

I agree. People will still buy it though. I prefer to wait for GOTY edition.

Thrasher August 3rd, 2012 01:04

Yep, sorry Bethesda, not worth it.

Shagnak August 3rd, 2012 01:43

Damn, it's US$24.99 in NZ! (and possibly Aus too?)

I was really looking forward to this, but it's not like I haven't got several dozen other games to finish (or start, even). I'll wait for a price reduction…

Menigal August 3rd, 2012 20:09

It doesn't sound like it really adds enough for that price. I think I'll wait, see what the bug situation is, and then reconsider it.

JDR13 August 3rd, 2012 21:00

Heh.. it'll be ~$10 by the time I get around to playing Skyrim anyways.

crpgnut August 4th, 2012 00:08

This seems to be the consensus everywhere. $20 is too high, Bethesda. $10, maybe. I was thinking about $7.99 personally, but I'm not a Twilight fan. I would play the Dawnguard side of the conflict and the only thing they got was a crossbow.

That was a low blow! :p

Some of us are more, let's say fans of True Blood or Nightwatch

A crossbow with a couple types of upgrades/replacements availible after completing certain quests including several types of explosive bolts, armored trolls, and several new spells. The abilities availible to vampires are certainly more diverse, but the Dawnguard magic and items are probably more practically useful.

And some of us are waiting for Peter Cushing to rise up, destroy them all, and let vampires become cool villains again.:biggrin:

You really need to be desperate to pay $20 (€ in my case) for this. Wait a couple of weeks and it will surely be on sale. Steam did 50% off Skyrim within two months as I remember it.

Er… no.

Fair enough. Just pointing out it likely will be on sale before long. It is simply not worth that much to me.

darkling August 6th, 2012 08:26

Green Man Gaming will have it soon. They said so on their forums. They usually have those 25% off coupons going, so it'll be $15 there.

crpgnut August 6th, 2012 18:57

Yep, I'm not ready for another Skyrim play just now, so waiting is only logical.

yllaettaevaet August 24th, 2012 11:57

EUR 20 on Steam… No. I'll stay with Arma II DayZ.

Thrasher September 25th, 2012 02:27

PC Gamer's Tom Francis apparently hated it. Buggy, too little content, too expensive.
