The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim director Todd Howard has confirmed that the hotly-anticipated fantasy RPG will feature the ability to become a vampire.
As with past entries in the franchise, contracting vampirism will augment the player character with various abilities and will allow you to feed off the living.
On the flip side however, you won’t be able to survive in sunlight without taking damage.
Skyrim launches on November 11 for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 platforms.

This is awesome news. However, I hope they have a better system for biting people. Sneaking up on someone who was asleep was kinda lame for me.

this is like confirming that the sun still rises in the morning. Since it was in the past games, why would we wonder if it was in this one?

You could do that in OBLIVION, so they are just recycling the same things.

Let's hope it doesn't come with a game breaking bug this time, like the Oblivion GOTY edition did.

I ended up getting this in Oblivion, but got rid of it pretty quick. Good to see that it will be in the next game.

actually great news to me, but not in the sense of other people here
vampirism was the reason I stopped playing Oblivion, I had read that the gameplay changes a lot, especially the interactions with NPCs, sunlight causing problems, and of course the boring and long quest to remove the curse ...
so yes, I won't be buying the game at all thanks to this information (WRPG is already not my cup of tea, FPS view doesn't help)
