Skyrim‘s DLC will at last be hitting all platforms. Dragonborn will launch on the PC starting February 5, while all content (including Dawnguard and Hearthfire) will become available on the PS3 later that same month. While specific dates were not given for the PS3 versions, Bethesda did state that the 1.8 update will precede Dragonborn, which will be the first DLC to hit the platform.
With Bethesda’s stated difficulties in bringing the Skyrim DLC to PS3, Sony announced they have a large support team working to resolve the issue. Sony’s Adam Boyes stated that “I can’t promise any kind of resolution or timeline but can say that everyone involved is trying their best to get this stuff working.”
Skyrim‘s 1.7 patch has left beta phase and is now being applied to all Steam versions, with console version updates to come this week. In addition, the Dawnguard DLC has officially launched for the PC, with only the PS3 version left unreleased. A representative on the Bethesda blog said they were “not satisfied yet with Dawnguard‘s performance on the PS3.”
Of course, if shouting your enemies to death is more your speed, the Dawnguard DLC for Skyrim is now available on the 360 for 1600 MS funbucks ($20).
Bethesda has announced a beta program for its upcoming Dawnguard DLC for the 360 version of Skyrim. Interested Dragonborn should direct themselves to the official site for registration, with applicants to be chosen sometime next week. The content itself is planned to launch this summer for 1600 MS funbucks (about $20).
According to Bethseda’s Tom Howard, Dawnguard, the first DLC package for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, is tentatively scheduled for June 26th. Mr. Howard stated that the DLC would be released, “assuming nothing goes wrong.”
Bethesda has just announced that Skyrim will soon receive its first DLC pack. Titled Dawnguard, the content is scheduled to launch this summer, and will be hitting 360 first. Further info will follow when E3 rolls around.
As long as we’re talking Elder Scrolls, an MMO with TES as the setting is apparently in development. Developed by Zenimax Online Studios, The Elder Scrolls Online is set about a thousand years before the events of Skyrim. The plot reportedly concerns the daedric prince Molag Bal as he attempts to dominate all of Tamriel; his specialty being the enslavement of mortals, that’s probably a bad thing.
TES Online is loosely scheduled for a 2013 PC/Mac release.
