Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC coming to PC and PS3 in February; Hearthfire and Dawnguard on PSN soon
I feel sorry for the owners of the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Not only has their version been riddled with more bugs and fewer updates than the Xbox 360 and PC versions, it has also yet to receive any of the three downloadable add-ons that have been released.
In that latter regard, Bethesda will finally right the wrongs and release the DLC on the PlayStation Network starting next month. The latest of the add-ons, Dragonborn, will be the first out of the gate (also, the PC version of Dragonborn will be released via Steam on February 5). Following Dragonborn will be Hearthfire, followed by Dawnguard (the very first add-on, which was released over half a year ago, I might add).
Dates for the PSN launches of the DLC have not been finalized, but Bethesda said that it will try to get them all out in February. The publisher was able to confirm the release of Skyrim's 1.8 update just before Dragonborn. Furthermore, it was revealed that PSN users will be able to buy the add-ons for half-price during their launch week.
"Over the last year, it's been a treat for us to work on new content for Skyrim, and we're excited that it will soon be available for everyone to explore," Bethesda said on its site. "Thanks for all your support and sharing your adventures with us."
Bethesda has promised that it has more plans for Skyrim DLC, having said that it will reveal more this year. A new add-on or two seems like a done deal. Whether PS3 owners will be getting that new content in a timely fashion is another matter entirely.
