Skyrim PS3 Dawnguard DLC given lifeline

Skyrim players on the PS3 have waited for weeks for some, any kind of clarification regarding DLC status for the PS3 version of Bethesda’s epic RPG. Today, we can finally bring you some positive news by confirming that Skyrim DLC is far from dead on the PS3 for the moment.

For weeks, PS3 players have had to endure complete silence from Bethesda, with frustration reaching fever pitch when a third DLC expansion was announced, for Xbox 360 only with no sign of a PS3 release. This came as a huge surprise, more so to PC users since Microsoft originally only had exclusivity for the first two expansions – now it looks like this may extend to a third though with Dragonborn.

While some may have been fearing that Skyrim was finished completely on the PS3, we now have some new hope to bring you, in the form of a very promising Twitter status update from Bethesda. The developer has finally rediscovered some basic communication skills and they have posted the following message as a crucial update for all PS3 members:

As you can see, it means that there is definitely some DLC content on the way for the PS3 version of the game. The immediate question here though, is whether Bethesda are specifically talking about Dragonborn only, or if the first Dawnguard content has been given a lifeline and will end up on the PS3 system after all.

We are hoping that it is all three pieces of content, so that we can finally draw a line under all of this mess and move on with the game having add-on content available for all three platforms with no hassle. Bethesda surely wants the same thing, but it still is a little bit hard to understand why the company couldn’t have sent out this kind of Tweet weeks ago.

It is a vague update, but at least it is something – that’s all PS3 owners ever asked for in return. As a PS3 user who has put many hours into Skyrim already, would you be satisfied if only Dragonborn ends up on the system, or are you still demanding that the Dawnguard content be fixed as a priority first?
