As we enter the start of November and the upcoming busy Holiday season, there is still no official word from Bethesda on the status regarding the missing PS3 Dawnguard DLC content for Skyrim. Thankfully though, the developer has released a brand new DLC screenshot possibly related to Dragonborn, meaning that we may finally get an answer on whether Dawnguard will be releasing on PS3 in a matter of days.
Bethesda has posted the fantastic-looking image to their Twitter account, along with the message informing fans to expect a full trailer on Monday November 5th. If you have been keeping a close eye on developments regarding the next DLC expansion, you’ll know that the Dragonborn name has already been revealed in trademark listings, and has been hidden inside some PC files, also containing some juicy information regarding the PS3.
In the recent Skyrim 1.8 beta update for PC users, this following line of code was found in one of the files – ‘$DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT_PS3 DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT’. Now this message also appeared in the same group of text referencing the Dragonborn name, which means that there could be two possible outcomes over this.
The first is that the Dragonborn DLC could be making its way to the PS3, meaning that users finally have some add-on content to play after missing out on Dawnguard and Hearthfire. While this would obviously be a pleasing outcome for fans, we would prefer to assume that the line of text relates to the fact that they have now fixed the well documented PS3 hardware problems and will be releasing all three expansion packs on the PS3, including the new Dragonborn content.
This trailer coming on November 5th will give us the answer to this question, as Bethesda will announce the chosen platforms at the end of the trailer. Another important thing to bear in mind is that Microsoft’s Skyrim DLC exclusivity agreement is up, meaning that Xbox 360 users won’t get this content first before anyone else. It’s either going to be just Xbox 360 and PC, or all platforms this time around.
Let’s pray that the company has sorted out all of their issues with the PS3 version and all platform owners can finally unite as one and enjoy the game in its fullest potential. Have a good look at the image above and let us know your thoughts on it – it has to be Dragonborn right?
Are you optimistic that we are going to get an announcement on Monday, stating that all the DLC content is finally on the way to PS3 users?
