Skyrim's Dawnguard, BF3: Close Quarters expansions release today

It's a huge day for downloadable content today as the big new expansion to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim arrives alongside the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Battlefield 3: Close Quarters.

The much anticipated "Dawnguard" expansion to the 2011 GamesRadar Reader's Choice winner of the Platinum Chalice award, Skyrim, will see players taking sides in a war for the sun itself as a band of vampires try to do away with that pesky skylight once and for all.

BF3: Close Quarters was previously released on PS3 thanks to EA's exclusivity arrangement on that console, but is just now coming to Origin and Xbox 360. It features four new maps, and ten new guns themed around the close quarters theme. Later expansions will be focusing on the more large-scale combat that the BF series is famous for.
