The Xbox 360 has three pieces of downloadable content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The PC currently has two. The PlayStation 3 has zero — but that will finally all even out in February.
The Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn add-on packs for Skyrim will hit Sony’s home console next month. Publisher/developer Bethesda will release an update to Skyrim just before the DLC goes live.
As a special deal for PS3 users, Bethesda will sell all three add-on packs at half price for the first week of their release. That means, instead of $20 each for Dawnguard and Dragonborn and $5 for Hearthfire, players will get them for $10 and $2.50, respectively.
The PC version of the Dragonborn expansion will hit on Feb. 5, Bethesda’s vice president of marketing Pete Hines said today on Twitter.
Dawnguard first debuted on the Xbox 360 in June. Bethesda released it on PC two months later. The developer struggled to get the add-ons to work the PlayStation 3’s limited RAM, which caused the extraordinary delay.
Bethesda is probably one studio that is ready for some next-gen hardware to help avoid headaches like these in the future.
