Skyrim’s DLC Dragonborn Coming to PC And PS3 Early Next Year

PS3 users have felt slighted for quite a while over the missing release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim‘s DLC Dawnguard on their platform. Looks like the same thing won’t happen with the upcoming package Dragonborn, that will be released on Xbox 360 tomorrow. (Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dragonborn DLC, PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)

It's not fair that pc users would have to wait 1 month for Dlc. I hate you xbox :c
Abriael  +   848d ago
Gotta thank Microsoft's money and Bethesda's short sighted response to it.

PC gamers dont really care about DLCs. They have so much fan made content. It makes DLCs look like a milking attempt at best, rather DLCs for Skyrim to a PC gamer are a joke.

Check out some of these great mods on PC for Skyrim, the DLCs stand no chance:


I have personally been playing around with:

Vilja in Skyrim
Enhanced lights and FX
imersive weapons
water-water and terrain enhancement
Skyrim HD - 2K textures
Project reality- climates of tamriel

PC gamers have literally access to unlimited quests from mods alone.. to us DLCs are a joke.
xbox is fine. MS sucks though..

The rumor is that the next Bungie game will be exclusive to xbox for the first game and then the 2nd and 3rd game would be ported to ps3 and pc(mass effect all over again).

I really wonder how many Zeros are on those MS checks. Really. They have bethesda, Epic & activition in bed at the same time.

All of it is aboyt MS as a company not the xbox gamers. Having dlc exclusive for xbox gamers for a month = no benefit to the gamers but much benefit for MS xbox sales(i guess).

I have a 360 and i must say, xbox sucks maybe its because its so old but ontopic i have skyrim on pc and the funny thing is, i was really planning to buy it tommorow, silly me they can keep the DLC i dont take seconds
taquito  +   848d ago
lets seriously hope no bungie game goes on either last gen ps3 or 360

ps4/nextbox only please
kalkano  +   848d ago
Seriously. The exclusivity period (first 2 DLCs) is over. Why are we still having to wait?

You don't think it's fair PC gamers need to wait a month before getting Skyrim DLC?

This is the first time PS3 gamers are even getting a tatse!!
Snookies12  +   847d ago
I don't think it's fair to either, just because Bethesda wanted Microsoft's money...

It's hard to blame them though, it's Microsoft at fault here. They're ruining gaming by doing things like this. It hurts gamers everywhere to do timed exclusive crap.
BanBrother  +   847d ago

Sony do it also, but even worse. They get exclusive content in Assassin's Creed games and Batman AA, and they can never go over to the Xbox.

Funny how people always forget. Microsoft aren't the only ones who do it. And yes, I think it is bad for gaming, as it is crap for gamers.

that's nice but when the hell do we do a level cap raise. Level 81 is extremely boring!
Abriael  +   848d ago
That's why you get the PC version and enjoy the magic of mods :D
Summons75  +   848d ago
eh i find nothing fun or interesting about mods. Just people who can't appreciate a game wanting an excuse to make it "better"
BiggCMan  +   848d ago
You have absolutely no idea what mods can do for a game do you? Skyrim for example, mods that have added hundreds of hours worth of content to the game, yet there has been only 2 pieces of official DLC for the game that don't last nearly as long. There are mods that add new weapons to the game that you can spend hours trying to craft with parts. There are mods that add dozens, even hundreds of missions to the game. Mods that improve graphics, mods that add magic spells, mods that add new characters... You honestly have no idea of amount of content mods have. And it's all completely free, and most of the time better than anything official, this goes for many games.
brodychet  +   848d ago
Lmao, @Summons, clearly haven't used any. That's like disliking food you've never tasted.
NCAzrael  +   848d ago
That is about the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Well, this week anyways. You're either A) a very cynical and jaded person who has never taken the time to even install a mod for any game, or B) a console only gamer who is trying desperately to fend off one of the greatest arguments on why a game like Skyrim is far better suited to the PC.
MysticStrummer  +   848d ago
@Summons75 - I'm not even a PC gamer and I know what you said there is pretty ridiculous. But, you're entitled to your opinion, even if it makes no sense at all. Fight the power.
Rowland  +   848d ago
I'm a multi-platform user and Skyrim on PC blows both consoles away in every department, BIG TIME. Then the mods enhance everything from sound effects to graphics to the music to new areas, new weapons, better balancing, new quests....etc etc etc

If amateur & hobby'ist 'modders' are producing amazing content for free in a matter of weeks why does it take Bethesda several months for one small'ish overpriced piece of DLC? !

You keep thinking that, we will keep enjoying the game with mods.
We can't appreciate a game just because we use mods? We use mods because we're not sheeps that like playing broken games, mods make the lifespan of a game last a lot more and they also improve the experience dramatically, who wouldn't want that? Only fanboys in denial like you.
Slugg3r  +   848d ago
I can't personally enjoy it even past lvl 30, the scaling of the enemies just doesn't keep up (some don't even scale) apart from few, that will cheaply insta kill you with magic. The balance just goes worse and worse, even when using scaling mods. This is why I personally prefer to have multiple play throughs.

What a tool
DragonKnight  +   848d ago
Bull. I'll believe it when I see it.

"It’s one of our most ambitious add-ons ever and we’re excited for everyone to play it."

So, being that Dragonborn is one of the most ambitious add-ons ever, one could logically assume that it's bigger and better than Dawnguard. If this is the case, why can Dragonborn come to PS3 but NOT Dawnguard OR Hearthfire?

Just stop lying Bethesda. You can't get Dawnguard or Hearthfire on PS3 but we're supposed to believe you can somehow magically get something bigger and better on it? You really must believe the PS3 userbase are full of idiots.

When it happens, I'll believe it. Until then, I will not be trolled by Bugthesda.
ziggurcat  +   848d ago
i'm certainly not confident that they'll be able to get it to work for PS3, either.

i've resigned myself to no longer give bethesda any of my money, regardless of the platform or whether they are just publishing the game because of this DLC debacle.

the one thing i do give them a *little* bit of credit for: after all was said and done on my skyrim playthrough (after receiving the platinum trophy), i had only experienced 3 crashes. after a certain point in the fallout series, i was crashing once every 15 - 20 minutes... so i guess they at least did *something* right?
DragonKnight  +   848d ago
To their credit, I personally did not experience many game breaking problems on my PS3. The worst I suffered was one quest being impossible to complete (the College quest where the Archmage dies), some instances of freezing that required a hard reset (very bad for your console, and I was using a Phat launch 60GB PS3), and that one problem when you're getting Yngol's Helm and the dungeon won't load and your screen is completely black and you can't do anything but restart the game.

But that doesn't mean that the bugs people have mentioned don't exist for other people, and it doesn't excuse their behaviour with the now 3rd piece of DLC that we're supposed to believe is possible on the PS3 but the first 2 aren't. They are biding their time for an "Ultimate Edition" and we'll still have to pay full price despite almost half a year waiting for Dawnguard.

Bethesda keep cementing my opinion that they are devs with big ideas and no ability to carry them out with any competence.
Detoxx  +   848d ago
Couldn't have said it any better myself.
Consoldtobots  +   848d ago
that's because it was a BS excuse to cover up the fact that MS corporate policy is to spite consumers of a competing brand. Lovely company they are.
creized1  +   848d ago
You can keep it...really..
Chidori  +   848d ago
I really don't care anymore. Skyrim is a 360 exclusive as far as I'm concerned.
hadouken007  +   848d ago
I traded in skyrim after seeing all the BS they been spitting, if they gave MS some exclusive stuff just say so I ain't hating, both sides do it. But stop lying. It's making them look bad.
greenpowerz  +   848d ago
You blame MSFT for PS3's hardware being inferior? Their are two issues. Possible exclusive treatment and PS3's hardware holding them back.

What if the console versions were the priority with PS3 holding up the devs, pushing the PC content back that had a planned later release even futher.

MysticStrummer  +   848d ago
I think instead of inferior you mean "harder to code for". At this point only the most delusional fanboy can compare exclusive visuals between the two platforms and declare the PS3 hardware to be inferior. I'm not talking about comparing art style either, which is what many people seem to think "graphics" means.
Norrison  +   848d ago
Stop talking like the PS3 is a machine with infite potential, it's a slight improvement over the Xbox 360 at most.
Also the exclusives on ps3 are no feat graphically because they use a lot of smoke and mirrors to fool people. Take your fanboy glasses off, the performance between the PS3 and the xbox 360 is really close, you don't see your average looking exclusives on 360 because Sony got better first party studios.
Consoldtobots  +   848d ago
hardware inferior??

God of War 3 and Uncharted say hi. I think the 360 would drop a deuce trying to push the graphics in those games.

solidjun5  +   847d ago
"Also the exclusives on ps3 are no feat graphically because they use a lot of smoke and mirrors to fool people."

I think you should follow your own advice and "Take your fanboy glasses off."
Citizen_King  +   848d ago
@Norrison If the performance of the PS3 and 360 are "really close" then why is Bethesda having trouble making Skyrim a quality product on the PS3? If they did it for the 360 it could be done for the PS3 according to your logic.

"Also the exclusives on ps3 are no feat graphically because they use a lot of smoke and mirrors to fool people."

LOL, please!
andibandit  +   847d ago
Performance wise, they are close, but architechtually speaking, the PS3 is much harder to grasp.
TheHater  +   847d ago

The PC version of any Bethesda game is just as bad as the PS3 version
Alos88  +   848d ago
I don't care, not until you announce PS3 owners are getting Dawnguard/Hearthfire too.
Lighter9  +   848d ago
I can't help but think that M$ had a hand in the delay, at least to the ps3... Maybe paying Beth to pretend to not be able to get the dlc to the ps3.

I bet that modders can create the Dragonborn dlc and release it before Bethesda can on the PC.
Dungus  +   848d ago
No longer interested. Thanks for thinking of us, though!
cheapness1  +   848d ago
Geez...you guys seem to forget DLC that releases on the 360 is contractually obliged to be exclusive for a few months...hence the previous Joe Danger 2 nonsense...it's also under NDA so they can't talk about other platforms for a period of time, completely not Bathesda's "fault" or Bioware's "fault" or anyone else releasing multiplat DLC

plus hating on mods...really, do you even own a PC don't forget that lil Warcraft 3 mod that got quite recognised...that quake mod that ended up being a full commercial release...and many others, don't be ignorant!

Several people at Bethesda stated that they were contracted for two early releases for Skyrim DLC to the Xbox. They've had two with Dawnguard and Hearthfire, so there's no reason why Dragonborn is being delayed.
cheapness1  +   847d ago
Yes, Dawnguard and Hearthfire may have been paid time exclusive but general xbox DLC policy is that you have to release first on the 360 regardless of whether it's paid exclusive or not...just the way Microsoft runs the show.

no thanks bethesda. if its coming out in 2013 how many will even care? skyrim is old news now. most have moved on.

Right, nobody play games that are a year old

i do. i got me skyrim one month ago and still enjoying my first playthrough^^
ZBlacktt  +   848d ago
Who cares, lost interest now that it's been so damn long since I bought the collectors edition for the PS3. Guess they fooled me. I'll never look at that company the same....sell outs.

How in the world do they expect PS3 owners to have a clue what's going on with the story now. Being left out a whole year from anything new? Now 3 DLC's behind and counting.

NCAzrael  +   848d ago
Hearthfire wasn't really a story at all, and Dawnguard has nothing to do with the Dragonborn story.
ZBlacktt  +   848d ago
Yes, how would we know? When you are taken out of the game for over a year. It's like it never happened, lol. :(

I lost interest in this game months ago it was a major disappointment for me playing it on the ps3 every time I went in to the water it crashed without fail that was the last straw for me not played it in 7 months and probably never will
execution17  +   847d ago
don't think that ever happened to me but I did have npcs fall through the map >.> so had to do a 2nd playthrough just to get the plat and I was never able to get all the dragon priest masks because of the same problem >.>

Dead_by_Dawn  +   848d ago
I will be getting this, but not right away, maybe not even at all. I'll wait till they sort out all the bugs/glitches. Given they're reputation, it's expected that they'll code it half assed once again. They're fan base with sony is wearing very thin, and my patience for they're crappy ports and lack of dlc for ps3 has pretty much reached a whatever- I don't care if it comes out point. Ps3 gamers who bought this glitch fest, got screwed time and time again, with little to no news on they're huge failure to properly program. Now, it's they're time for them give back to the fans that stuck with them throughout this entire debacle

Did have to dust off my 360 for it, tho.
