After months of delays, all three expansion packs for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will released on PSN starting February 12.
Writing on the Bethesda Blog, the company has confirmed that Dragonbord, Dawnguard, Hearthfire and the 1.8 title update have cleared SCEA’s certification meaning that release dates have been set.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dragonborn will release February 12, Hearthfire is out February 19 and Dawnguard is February 26. That is three weeks in a row of brand new content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Knowing that the PS3 community is not happy with the delay, Bethesda is offering all expansion packs 50% off during their first weeks of availability. Release dates for Europe have not been released.
It has been a long road for PS3 gamers who have grown frustrated with Bethesda. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launched in a less than optimal state on the PS3 with the game suffering from huge framerate dips when save files got too large. The DLC was continuously delayed as Bethesda tried to work out the issues and fans continued to grow angry. Hopefully all future content will arrive without delay.
Due to a deal between Microsoft and Bethesda all DLC will release a month earlier on Xbox 360 before launching on PS3 or PC. Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn released last year for Xbox 360. Of those, only Dawnguard and Hearthfire released on PC last year with Dragonborn coming out this month on the platform.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is out now for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
