Skyrim DLC *finally* hits the PS3: Dragonborn half price to celebrate

After a wait as long as a Tolkien dragon’s slumber, PlayStation 3 owners can today sink their teeth into the first DLC pack for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to be made available to their console.

And, in a consolatory coup for PS3 owners, they get Dragonborn, the newest and best Skyrim expansion, first. And, to soothe the wounds of PS3 owners who’ve had a rough ride with the PS3 version of the game already, it’ll be half price during this introductory week at £6.49.

It’ll be followed up by the Heathfire and Dawnguard DLC packs soon afterwards, landing on February 20th and 27th respectively.

It’s been a rocky road for Skyrim on the PS3. While Xbox 360 and PC owners were enjoying one of the best RPG experiences money can buy, PlayStation 3 gamers had to put up with incessant bugs that at times made the game unplayable, as well as the aforementioned lack of DLC. It now seems that all of those problems, more than a year after the games much-lauded launch, have been fixed.

We recently played through the PC version of the Dragonborn DLC, so if you’re looking for an idea of what to expect with the PS3 version (which we expect to be very close indeed) click here to check out our review.

    Here's a thought; if they are releasing Dragonborn first 'as it is the best', are they seriously trying to suggest Hearthfire is better than Dawnguard by releasing it next?

      I don't think so. Maybe Hearthfire is just the easyist one to release after Dragonborn while they finish on Dawnguard.

    • Yeorlund

      Or maybe its to give people longer to complete dragonborn.?

      • Shiken

        Or maybe they are all coming out within one month at half price, actually trying to compensate PS3 Skyrim's past hardships, and therefore no one should really give a shit about the order? Just enjoy the content and be done with it.

          I’m trolling on Hearthfire gov, I had Dark Souls, Portal 2 and Borderlands 2 keeping me busy so didn’t notice the wait. I am of the opinion Hearthfire is a glorified storage box add-on so couldn’t care less about it. Sorry that you missed the point there but cheers for telling me what I should and shouldn’t give a shit about, very informative.

            Hearthfire introduced a load of bugs when first released (including a couple of game breakers). They’re probably playing it safe, and waiting to see if that combo breaks anything on a machine with an ‘active’ saved game as they’ll want Dawnguard to launch bug-free, given all the bad history behind it.
