Skyrim Dawnguard Beta Coming To Xbox 360, Apply Quickly
Generally beta tests for upcoming Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim updates have been limited to the PC. However, with the upcoming DLC pack Dawnguard, Bethesda will be hosting the test on Xbox 360.
In order to apply, head to DawnGuardBeta.ElderScrolls.com. You'll have to fill out a brief survey that asks mostly about your playing experience with Skyrim. If you haven't logged 100+ hours in the game, don't worry; they're probably seeking a diverse set of players with different levels of progression in the game so that they can be thorough with bug testing. Whether you're a noob or season vet, though, you'll need a registered account on the Bethesda forums to apply.
Beta invites will be sent out to select applicants in a few days. If you're accepted, they'll give you a download code for Dawnguard. Note that the beta version features the full version of the content, including Achievements, so you're essentially getting the DLC for no charge by becoming a beta tester.
Dawnguard, the first DLC for Skyrim, introduces a vampire hunting society of the same name. They're attempting to stop an order of powerful vampires from plunging Skyrim into endless darkness. Players will have the option of siding with the vampires or the hunters. For a look at this new adventure, check out last week's trailer.
Bethesda plans to release Dawnguard on June 26th for 1600 MS Points, or $20. The reason the beta is exclusive to Xbox 360 is that the console is getting the content first. PS3 and PC owners will need to wait at least 30 days to get their hands on the DLC.
