For those players taking on the role of the Dovhakiin on the Xbox 360, Tuesday 4th December marks the date that the latest DLC, Dragonborn, is released to further expand the world of Skyrim. PC users had to wait a month for the first two DLC’s, but what about those players on PS3 who have yet to experience the joys found in the Dawnguard and Hearthfire expansions?
Well, there is a light at the end of the tunnel with Bethesda announcing a proposed release period of early 2013, and with some sites predicting a January arrival for the newly created Dragonborn DLC on both PS3 and PC. So if you are a PS3 gamer, and wish to return to the world of Skyrim now would be the time to look into clearing up your calendar for the new year.
As yet, there is still no announcement of the original DLC arriving on PS3, and with news that Dragonborn will arrive early next year, it is looking increasing unlikely that the first two expansions will make the transition to Sony’s flagship platform.
Beset by problems from release, and with Bethesda playing catch up on the fallout from the save file problems on the PS3 architecture, it would undoubtedly be easy for them to promise a fix to placate some of the greater naysayers in the Sony crowd, but it would be a PR disaster should they fail to deliver.
It may be a small consolation to PS3 owners that they are at least getting some of the additional content available to their Microsoft and PC cousins, but at the end of the day Bethesda have not ruled out the transmission to PS3 at this time.
There’s always hope, right?
