Skyrim Update: Dragonborn DLC Heading to PS3?
The PS3 version of Skyrim has endured some serious growing pains. Early in its release, there were some serious bugs that hampered the experience. While many of these issues were fixed and patched, the DLC for Skyrim has remained elusive on the PS3. The first 2 DLC for the game, the Dawnguard and Hearthfire expansion packs were released on the Xbox 360, but serious problems have prevented them from reaching the PS3. The Dragonborn DLC, which launched on Xbox 360 on December 4th, has also gone missing. However, there are signs that this wonderful DLC will be heading to the PS3.
Bethesda has been working at getting these issues ironed out so that PS3 players can enjoy these DLC offerings. While there hasn’t been a release date or price announced, the Bethesda blog delved into the matter. Dragonborn is the focus right now, and will be the first bit of content to arrive on the PS3. Given the high praise that the DLC has been garnering, this should come as welcomed news for PS3 players. Dan Whitehead had this to say in his Eurogamer review:
“This isn’t DLC. This is an expansion, like in the good old days. It’s an entirely new area, a blank map waiting to be filled in as you roam, packed with new quests, miscellaneous tasks, dungeons, barrows, ruins and crypts. It’s an absolute beast, with a main storyline that lasts a good few hours and enough supporting content to keep you playing for weeks more.”
Dragonborn is definitely the best DLC for Skyrim, so it’s only fitting that it should be the first expansion to arrive on the PS3 version. Not only that, it’s likely the issues surrounding Dawnguard and Hearthfire are more problematic, allowing Bethesda more time to fix those for a later release. Stay tuned for more information on the Dragonborn DLC and other Skyrim updates as it becomes available.
