Skyrim: Dawnguard DLC New Weapons Spotted
Dawnguard may see the addition of silver weaponry to combat the undead scourge and the vampires.
An observant fan of Skyrim has spotted an interesting detail in a few of the screenshots of the game's upcoming DLC, Dawnguard.
Dawnguard, which is slated for release later this June on the Xbox 360 as a timed exclusive, will be adding a new questline involving a war between vampires and their hunters, the Dawnguard.
In addition to the new campaign, the expansion pack will add mounted combat (which has already been added in the PC version), and a host of new weapons including crossbows.
As I mentioned just now, a fan of the game has noticed the appearance of new weapons in these screenshots, which appear to be in silver—a metal feared by vampires and werewolves alike. We may finally have the opportunity to upgrade the silver swords left by the Silver Hand agents who hunt the werewolves in the original Skyrim campaign.
Although the silver-ness of the weapons has yet to be confirmed, it only makes sense that the Dawnguard would be equipped with such potent weaponry. After all, staking vampires wouldn't be the same without a silver crossbow that fired silver bolts.
