PS3 and PC users finally receive conclusive news regarding Dragonborn, Hearthfire, and Dawnguard; the long-awaited Skyrim DLC is due out in February!
Skyrim Dragonborn Hearthfire Dawnguard
Following a long and rowdy wait, PS3 and PC users were finally treated to a statement in December that pegged the release date of the missing Skyrim DLC in "early 2013." Bethesda has now released a follow-up statement that provides more details on the expected arrival date of February.

PC: On Tuesday, February 5th, Dragonborn will be available on Steam, including the English, French, Italian, Spanish and German versions of the content.

PlayStation 3: Dragonborn will be the first add-on arriving on PSN in February. Hearthfire will release next, followed by Dawnguard, and all three should be out in February. The 1.8 update will also release, just prior to Dragonborn. We’ll keep you posted as release dates get finalized both on our end and with Sony for each and its various languages. Last but not least, each one will be 50% off during their launch week on PSN.


Although the PS3 is still without a solid release date, Bethesda is acknowledging its mistakes by offering the DLC for 50% off during its first week. A not so subtle ploy to win over the disgruntled among us, maybe, but it is a positive first step in the right direction.

Following the fiasco that has seen over 7 months of delays, broken promises, and pessimistic twitter statements, I personally vowed to never purchase the DLC when (or if) it ever released on my PS3. However, the launch discount is tempting - how often do you see reduced prices on Bethesda DLC? Oblivion's Shivering Isles, widely considered the gold standard, can still be found on PSN for $30. If you ever plan on purchasing this content, the launch week would appear to be the time.

I kind of feel like a sell-out for likely buying all of the DLC, but it's hard for me to justify passing up 50% off on each. The sad thing is I'll probably end up buying them and then never even starting any of it since Skyrim is so far back in my priority list now. Then Bethesda will continue their evil ways, knowing that after everything they still conned me out of my monies.
