Dawnguard PS3 to release with many bugs

If you thought Skyrim Dawnguard would release on the PS3 with less bugs considering Xbox 360 had a chance to find loads of them, then you are right but sadly the couple of fixes inside the Skyrim patch 1.7 notes are nothing compared to the long list created by gamers. It looks like Dawnguard’s PS3 release will take longer than the initial 30 day exclusive we first thought, and even after patch 1.7 is installed on the PlayStation 3 there are a growing list of bugs being kept track of without a fix planned for a while.

It is fair to say we expected bugs with the first Skyrim DLC and most of these are sure to receive a fix in time, but the first patch notes since Dawnguard released on the Xbox 360 last month include a small amount of fixes, which are upsetting some gamers when compared to this long list of bugs that cause problems for Dawnguard quests and the main game.

The Dawnguard main quest is affected with certain objectives/quests, which include Bloodline, Prophet, A New Order, Chasing Echoes, Scroll Scouting, Seeking Disclosure, Beyond Death, and Unseen Visions. There are also issues with side quests like Preemptive Strike and Hunting the Monster, although it’s worth pointing out most of the bugs being reported by gamers don’t stop you completing the main quest. These are minor problems like vampires disappearing into walls, but we did notice a couple that stop you completing a quest like in A Daedra’s Best Friend, which some people can’t find Barbas to trigger the quest. See the complete list of Dawnguard bugs here, and then hit the comments if you have experienced bugs that cause major issues to your game.

Our Dawnguard review resulted in hardly any bugs and we had an enjoyable experience, so we highly recommended PC and PS3 users to download the first Skyrim DLC as soon as available. The PC and PS3 DLC will launch with a lot of minor bugs unless there’s a major change with the patch notes after PC v1.7 beta, which is unlikely to happen on the level needed.

Are you happy to download the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC on PS3 even if most of these bugs remain?

I really don’t understand why it is taking them so damn long to debug a 6 year old console. What are they gonna do when the next gen consoles come out?

BUGS???? On Dawnguard? NO!! I cannot believe that! The next thing you are going to say is that Skyrim has bugs, or that Bethesda ignores Ps3 gamers! How dare you?? *humpf*

 well. I’ve just got in and was setting up to settle and play dawnguard…and it’s not out (Throwing away self made calendar countdown to dawnguard as I write;-))
and it’s a tad upsetting to see us pc and ps3 users shafted again!

but to you dear ps3 user:
You made me feel happier about the whole affair..and to you sir..my friend..a ps3 user…you are right…we are in this together…at least we are not alone.

It can’t be released on just the 360..that’s ludrricrus…surely they wouldn’t do that. THE game is on all platforms…why would they upset thousands of players and deny them the dlc on thier platforms of coice?

If I was running a game company I would tell them if the DLCS is being delayed. They said they listen to us… Bullshit! If I have to wait until August I will be pissed. Just release it already besides, 8 months and u want to delay it? Did u guys even test dawnguard? I’m pretty sure you would have rooted out all the bugs for playing a little over. 2 months.

Erm, guys there’s something worrying on the Elder Scrolls Facebook page: “The first Skyrim game add-on EXCLUSIVELY on Xbox 360.” Does this mean PC and PS3 are never going to get Dawnguard? Because from where i’m sitting that’s what it seems like. Think about it:
1. All the Dawnguard marketing material only refers to Xbox.
2. Someone tweeted Pete Hines concerning Dawnguard and was met with the response: “We haven’t said anything about other platforms.”
3. There has been zero mention of anything Dawnguard related on PC and PS3.

I’ve just got back from work and came on to download dawnguard (as the 30 days for xbox are up now) and it’s still not there. i do not understand? initially, Bethesda said “coming out for xbox 360 on June 26 and ps3 and pc owners can expect it 30 days later”.I’m not one to go off on a ‘rant’ complaining, but I booked a day off work tomorrow and chilled a couple of 4 packs to stay in and vamp it up tomorrow and it looks like I’m denied this after a months wait and having to pull strings… Read more »

I’m gonna be so pissed if dawngauard doesn’t come out on ps3 today because today’s the 30 day exclusive that Xbox gets it and i dnt rlly care if it glitches out sometimes it’s funny to c a vamp get stuck in the wall so that he can’t kill u

Played dlc on friends 360… Not glitchy at all, the ones who are lagging are probably people who drop there discs on their floor when done playing and they have a ton of scratches 😛 I think Bethesda is trying to give us a ton of bulls**t cuz Microsoft Payed them extra. I have been waiting since dawnguard rumors started stirring. I will be so mad if it don’t release today!

Cmon really? Do we really believe that bethesda thought to protect ps3, and pc users from possible glitches? No, hell no. They saw $$$, and sure enough they took it. Do we believe Microsoft would be stupid enough to pay millions(maybe billions) for a glitchy product? No! Hell no! Theyre very shrewd, and thourough which is largely apparent in their success. So why havent we heard a peep from bethesda? Or at least a “We’re still working on it, we hope to have it to our fans soon”?

to be honest i dont actualy care about the bugs. I have done basically all the important things on skyrim and they should just release the dlc then focus on fixing it because by now most of the fans like me are probably thinking of not buying it because we dont reallly want to play skyrim because we has moved on to a different game

If its not released by 6:00am today then I guess thats a pretty convincing sign that it wont be released till aug. or sept. unless Sony decides to for once stand up for its customers and somehow get this update and the dlc by next week.

I really think that today ps3 users are going to get Fu*k by Bethesda. Todd Howard has said many times with many games including skyrim that they listen to the online community. Well if they did that then ps3 would have the latest update and dawnguard would be out today. However saddly no word yet from them because they know that today when the dlc doesn’t arrive everyone will be pissed off. As many people have said they don’t care if it’s buggy they just won’t the new content after playing the same stuff for 8 months Really the nee… Read more »

if it had so many bugs already why did they not do more tests before they released it for xbox, and microsoft only got a 30 day exclusivity period so its unfair to make everyone else wait longer than that 30 days, its bullcrap, effectively if it doesnt come out today then xbox will be getting extra days of exclusiveness (sorry for poor wording) and they wont have paid for this extra amount of exclusive time on the game so wtf!!!

The worst thing is not that Bethesda hasn’t released it yet (even though the 30 days of being Microsofts B**CH are over) which is bad enough for other platforms…but that they are keeping us all in the DAMMED DARK about it is very naughty of them. They are only upsetting ps3 and pc players…which are just as importnant as 360 paying customers!…..bunch of idiots

I’ve lost all interest in anything Bethesda does ever again. Being constantly told to basically shut up and wait just because you have a Ps3 has both angered and upset me. Ps3 players paid the same as anyone else, yet we always get the rough end of the stick. Goodbye Bethesda, you won’t be receiving another penny from me again.

So heres the thing… This “long list” of bugs that everyone has posted… much like the old Xbox 360 red ring issue… i have rarely encountered. The few i have encountered (mob dying and clipping into the ground or wall), i just reload, do it again, and problem solved. This has happened to me, with my over 400 hours of game play and 30 different character builds, 5-6 times tops. Here’s another hint too, if you cause a quest giver to be hostile, calm spells wont fix the issue. you may get the quest but you will never be able… Read more »

As a programmer, I’m afraid many of you miss the point in these epic sized releases. A company has a limited staff that works on playtesting these games and checking for bugs. However, the user base when a project is released is substantially larger, and will find bugs and glitches that are not readily apparent to the testers due to sheer numbers. The difference in what a million+ players can find in a few weeks is comparative to what a dozen or so can find in a few years. Proactive testing only goes so far, it is why all major… Read more »

Im so tired of microsoft instead of making more exclusive titles that dont suck and making there online a better experience they give publishers contracts so they get dlcs first well guess what microsoft.
