  2. PS3 and PC Skyrim DLC Arriving February

    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.

  3. Hearthfire Released on PC; No Word on PS3 Version

    Hearthfire Released on PC


    As of Thursday, October 4th, Bethesda has made the PC version of its "Hearthfire" DLC available on Steam. The DLC, as described by Beth Blog...

    In case you missed it, with Heathfire you can purchase land and build your own home from the ground up – from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenter’s workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.


    The Hearthfire add-on content will be sold at a $4.99 price point; significantly less than the more pricey and substantial Dawnguard DLC ($20.00).

    Skyrim DLC on the PS3


    Many irate PS3 players have been waiting for Dawnguard on the PS3 since mid-July, and the mild annoyance has grown into a bitter resentment as Bethesda has refused to directly address the issue with a tentative release date. The Bethesda official forums have seen over 25 threads and literally thousands of replies demanding information from the publisher.

    Unfortunately, there remains no real news on when - or if - either Dawnguard or Hearthfire will ever find their way onto the PS3. Pete Hines, Bethesda's Vice President of Public Reactions, released a short statement over twitter:

    I don't have any info on Hearthfire, Dawnguard, or DLC in general for PS3. We're still on it. Will share update when I have one.


    Whether or not they're "still on it" has been a point of heated debate, as previous Bethesda statements have been skeptical of the state of the PS3 versions.

  4. Hearthfire - Where and How to Buy Property

    Well, it's September 4th and Heathfire is out on the 360! Since the game launched, the site has been hammered with search queries of people searching for information on how they can buy and acquire their own land and property.

    Purchasing Land


    You are able to buy property in the holds of Hjaalmarch, Falkreath, and The Pale. As you can imagine, this means there are three plots of land that you are able to purchase in Hearthfire.

    If you are a thane in any of the previously mentioned holds, you just need to visit the Jarl and/or Steward to purchase the land. Otherwise, a courier will deliver a letter from the Holds' Jarl asking you to visit. You do not need to be a Thane to purchase land, although you may have to do a radiant quest.

    Now that you know how you can purchase land, lets take a look at what each plot includes and specific purchasing details.

    The Pale


    Selling NPCs: Jarl Skald
    NPC Location: Dawnstar's White Hall.
    Notes: Your new home will by named Heljarchen Hall (located south of Fort Dunstad). You will also receive a housecarl named Gregor.
    Price: 5,000 Gold

    Falkreath Hold


    Selling NPCs: Nenya or Tekla
    NPC Location: Jarl’s Longhouse in Falkreath
    Notes: The Falkreath residence is named Lakeview Manor and is located East of the city. Don't worry, lake front property doesn't cost you anything extra; it still goes for...
    Price: 5,000 Gold

    Hjaalmarch


    Selling NPCs: Aslfur or Sorli the Builder
    NPC Location: Morthal
    Notes: Talk to the steward about purchasing a home. He'll say none are available, and instead offer to sell you land. Your estate will be named Windstad Manor, and be located near the Abandoned Shack.
    Price: 5,000 Gold

    Well, that's about it! Leave your thoughts and Hearthfire experiences in the comments below!

  5. Rumored Skyrim DLC Called Hearthfire

    Those who have been paying attention to Bethesda's trademarking history are aware that one of the newest names to come up is Hearthfire, prompting new DLC rumors to begin circulating on message boards.

    Reddit user derptemp6698, who correctly leaked the Mass Effect 3 DLC, allegedly had this to say...

    "Hearthfire, the next official game-add on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim®, has arrived. For the first time in the Elder Scrolls universe, purchase land and build your own home from the ground up - from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with armory, alchemy laboratory, trophy room, and more! With Hearthfire, the possibilities of what you can build are endless."


    That seems to make sense, as the word "hearth" generally refers to either the area in front of a fireplace or home. It certainly conjures up home-esque images, at any rate.

    Despite all of the rumors and excitement surrounding the potential new DLC, expectations should be held in check as PS3 users have yet to even get their hands on the first Dawnguard DLC. In fact, PS3 players in Europe have yet to get either the 1.6 or 1.7 patch updates necessary for preparing Skyrim for Dawnguard; these same patches were released in early July for the 360 and PC.

    Whatever the new DLC contains, Microsoft still has a 30 day exclusivity contract in place with Bethesda that will withhold the DLC from other platforms for at least that long, and likely (if Dawnguard is any indication) longer. The deal covers the first two Skyrim DLC's, so perhaps after "Hearthfire" (if it exists), the other platforms will see same-day releases for the following DLC (if there is any).
