Bethesda Softworks have released an update on Skyrim DLC headed to the PS3.
In a post on the Bethesda Blog, Bethesda has reassured players that they are still intent on releasing the latest Skyrim expansion; Dragonborn as well as Dawnguard and Hearthfire for the PlayStation 3. However, Bethesda are currently working on releasing the Dragonborn DLC first instead.
“..we’re hard at work to make this content available early next year on PS3 and PC. On PS3 in particular, we turned our attention to Dragonborn, as we thought it was the best content to release first, and we didn’t want folks to wait longer” said the blog post. “Once it’s ready to go for everyone, we’ll continue our previous work on Hearthfire and Dawnguard for PS3. Each one takes a lot of time and attention to work well in all circumstances and all combinations of DLC. Once we have a better idea of release timing and pricing, we’ll let you know.”
Dawnguard and Hearthfire, the first expansions for TES5: Skyrim released earlier this year but never saw release on the PS3 due to technical issues. Something Skyrim on the PS3 in notorious for. PC owners were kept waiting for a lot longer but got them eventually. Bethesda has said that they plan to get Dragonborn on the PS3 and PC by early 2013 but thats the extent of any information concerning a release.
However, players may not find as much solace in this as initially thought. There are no firm release dates for the PS3 for all three or PC regarding Dragonborn. Whilst Bethesda are working on the game, players should bare in mind that this doesn’t give us much in the way of progress. The DLC packs could still run into problems and more technical issues.
