Downloadable content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is finally coming to the PlayStation 3. The game's developer, Bethesda, announced today that all three expansion DLC packs for the popular RPG will be arriving next month, beginning with Dragonborn, while Hearthfire and Dawnguard will follow shortly after.
In addition to the DLC release, Bethesda will also out the 1.8 update for Skyrim on PS3 next month, just ahead of Dragonborn's launch in February. While no specific release dates for any of the expansions were disclosed, PC gamers will get the Dragonborn DLC on February 5. However, all of the expansions will be 50% off during their launch on the PlayStation Network.
It's important to point out that the Xbox 360 has had all three DLC packs for some time now. Dawnguard was released in June, Hearthfire in September, and Dragonborn in December. Bethesda said that the delay for PS3 was completely their fault, and while they didn't mention any specifics about the problem, they were destined to fix it and make things right for gamers.
We are curious to know just how many gamers are still loyal to a game that hasn’t seen any new content in over a year, but the developer's heavy discount of the DLC packs when they eventually release will hopefully spark the fun back into the game, and we'll hopefully see more PS3 gamers get back into the groove of things.
