Bethesda’s Pete Hines sheds a little more light on the DLC situation for the PS3 version of Skyrim.
Despite three DLC packs being released for Skyrim, the complete absence of them from the PlayStation 3 has left fans doubtful as to whether Bethesda will ever port the DLC over or if they care about the PlayStation as a console at all. With many of the patches missing as well as the smaller Hearthfire content pack, it’s hard not to see the scepticism of PS3 users in this case.
Pete Hines, vice-president of Bethesda softworks, has been diligent in keeping fans updated via his personal Twitter account, whether the news is good or bad. He interacts with fans and the community on a regular basis in an attempt to keep morale up in these times.
Earlier today a fan tweeted Hines directly asking what the status was on the new Dragonborn DLC. Whilst we know that the DLC in question is currently Xbox exclusive due to a timed exclusive deal, it is due to eventually release on PC. The fan who tweeted Hines asked if they have any plans to bring Dragonborn to PS3, writing that he was “so tired of this whole mess”.
Hines responded quickly simply stating that he would give a release date as soon as possible. The irate fan probed further hoping for more details to which Hines responded:
“no, we said we were still working on Dawnguard. We have committed to Dragonborn release. Just haven’t announced date yet”
Whilst Bethesda seems committed to delivering the DLC content on PS3, this is beginning to look like Dawnguard all over again. To this day the core game remains unstable on the PlayStation due to programming errors left, right and centre, so I don’t have much hope for new content on top of that.
