Earlier this week we informed you about the US release dates for the missing DLC expansions for the PS3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Some of our readers in the UK were worried that a further delay may be coming, but we’re glad to say that this won’t be the case. Bethesda has now confirmed UK dates for the content and we’re pleased to say that Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn will be out the same week as their US counterparts.
They won’t be available on the same day as each other though. You should already know that Dragonborn is first to arrive on PS3 and will be available in the US on Tuesday February 12. Skyrim fans in the UK won’t have to wait long as Bethesda has confirmed that the UK release of Dragonborn will take place the following day on Wednesday February 13.
It is the same format for Hearthfire and Dawnguard as well. The two packs release in the US on February 19 and February 26 respectively, so just add one day to that for the UK releases. We’re glad to see that there has been no further complications for the European release, although Bethesda has said that German, French, Spanish and Italian versions of the DLC will take a little longer to come out.
It means this time next week, PS3 owners will finally get their hands on the first piece of DLC content for the game, albeit in the reverse order with Dragonborn releasing first and Dawnguard releasing last this time around. There was a dark period when it looked like no DLC would come at all though, so you have to say that this is a good conclusion for everyone – especially with the 50% discount in place during the first week.
With the three packs coming out in the space of three weeks, how are you going to manage all of your time? Will you play all three together at once, or just buy Dragonborn first of all?
