Dragonborn DLC actually dated for PC and PS3 this time around

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn

By on December 4, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Skyrim‘s next DLC pack Dragonborn is on its way to XBox LIVE tomorrow. But what about everyone else? Will there be a repeat of the Dawnguard expansion debacle? Well, Bethesda have confirmed that the PS3 and PC versions will be released ‘early next year’. There’s no indication whether ‘early next year’ means January 1 or February 28 or even later, but it is a positive indicator in any case.

Official word from the Bethesda Blog: “We’re less than 24 hours away from unleashing Skyrim’s next add-on Dragonborn on Xbox LIVE.  It’s one of our most ambitious add-ons ever and we’re excited for everyone to play it.

We’re also happy to announce Dragonborn will be available on PS3 and PC early next year. And we’re still not done – we look forward to sharing more Skyrim news next year!”

Despite these happy words of encouragement about Dragonborn, however, PS3 owners are still waiting for the previous expansion, Dawnguard. So I’m sure PS3 players are reading this with a rather large grain of salt.

If you are excited, though, a few more details about exactly what’s going to be in this DLC pack were leaked just today, so check them out over here.

Whatever…

Surely if you’ve got a product on multiple systems you’d work your ass off to get it released on the same date on all systems not just one.. Call me mad, but it just seems like good business sense.

 

I thought they had some deal with it coming out first on the 360? A shame really, since the modding community’s ability to engage with the content makes it a far better buy on PC than on console.

It was a back-room deal with MS, not some sort of mismanagement.

IMO though, that is even worse. PC gamers are the ones who put Bethesda on the map but it would seem loyalty is a rare concept among developers these days. See also CCP.

Loyalty doesn’t pay the bills. If “PC” was owned by Gabe Newell in the same fashion “Xbox” is owned by Microsoft, then perhaps Gabe could pay the shit out of Bethesda to have it on PC first. This, however, is obviously not the situation we find ourselves in, so circle back to the first sentence.

 

At least it’s being released on PC. They could’ve given us the big middle finger and just made it XB360 exclusive, like other devs have with their DLC.
