The day that Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim players on PlayStation 3 and PC have been waiting for has finally arrived: A release date for the game’s suite of long-awaited, oft-delayed downloadable content has been announced!
You’ll remember that storm of anger and frustration that broke when Bethesda Softworks revealed that the team was having some difficulty getting Skyrim’s Dawnguard and Hearthfire DLC to work on the PlayStation 3 version of the game, while Xbox 360 gamers enjoyed an extended period of exclusivity for those pieces of content, as well as the most recent DLC, Dragonborn.
Well, no longer, because Bethesda has today announced that PS3 and PC gamers will be able to get the game’s released DLC in February.
When can we Guard Dawns and defeat Dragonborn?
On February 5th, PC players will be able to get the ‘Dragonborn’ DLC on digital distribution service, Steam, with English, French, Italian, Spanish and German language version of the game becoming available.
On PlayStation 3, however, all three of the add-ons for Skyrim (Dragonborn, Heathfire and Dawnguard) will arrive on the PlayStation Network over the course of February, along with a new patch, version 1.8. Dragonborn will be the first of the released add-ons, followed by Hearthfire and Dawnguard.
Final release dates for each piece of content will be revealed soon, but Bethesda did reveal that each of the DLC packs will be available for 50% off their regular price during each of their respective launch weeks on PlayStation Network.
“Over the last year, it’s been a treat for us to work on new content for Skyrim,” writes Bethesda, “and we’re excited that it will soon be available for everyone to explore. Thanks for all your support and sharing your adventures with us.”
PlayStation 3 and PC gamers, will you be picking up the long-awaited DLC for Skyrim in February, or has the moment past?
