Now, we don't want to get your hopes up too much with that headline, but if you signed up for beta access to Skyrim's first expansion, Dawnguard, you may want to check your email inbox. Bethesda has sent out invites to the select few who have been chosen to test the upcoming DLC.

As of right now, less than half a percent of the people out of an "overwhelming" number of applicants will receive invites, Bethesda's Twitter account says. If you were lucky enough to get an invite today, good for you – the rest of those who'll gain access should see an invite tomorrow. But let's be honest: for most of us, there will be no email, and only a sadness lasting a few weeks. Better stock up on ice cream and break out your good crying sweatpants.
