Making good on their promise to start rolling out the downloadable content for the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim early this year, Bethesda has confirmed that all three DLC packs will be available for purchase on the PlayStation Store sometime next month. The publisher did not lock down a specific release date for any of the DLC, however, they did note that a 1.8 title update will proceed the launch of Dragonborn.
To make up for the fact that the Dawnguard DLC launched nearly seven months ago on the Xbox 360 — which makes this news, at best, a case of “better late than never” — Bethesda has decided to release all the DLC for 50% off during their respective launch weeks. Whether this will be enough to sway PS3 gamers to come back to Skyrim remains to be seen, however, it is nice that the publisher decided to throw a bone to the segment of their customer base that has received the most mistreatment since the game launched.
For those interested in coming back to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda has a total of three add-on packs to suck away the majority of your free time.
The latest Skyrim DLC release, Dragonborn, has players travel to the island of Solstheim off the coast of Morrowind. There they will find new towns, dungeons, and quests, as they embark on a quest to become the Ultimate Dragonborn. In addition to the new areas to explore, players will also discover new powers/weapons and eventually gain the ability to tame dragons.
The Hearthfire DLC will give players the ability to purchase land where they can then design and build their own home. Once they have outfitted their own personal manor they can use the add-on’s adoption system to take in their own orphans and start a family.
Finally, the Dawnguard DLC has players choose between fighting against the Vampire Lord Harkon or joining him on his quest to use the Elder Scrolls to destroy the sun. The downloadable pack adds new locations, creatures, weapons, spells, and armor to the game. Additionally, players can choose to become a Vampire Lord or use the new Werewolf perk system.
We will keep an eye out for an additional information on the DLC for the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and let you know as soon as Bethesda announces their specific release dates.
