Skyrim’s Dragonborn Expansion Lands On Xbox 360 Tomorrow

It’s been over a year since the launch of 2011’s undisputed game of the year – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Since then, the game has received two pieces of DLC in Dawnguard and Hearthfire. Both expansions have launched on the PC and Xbox 360, but PS3 players have been left out with little to no explanation. It looks like all that is changing with Dragonborn.

Bethesda reminded everyone this morning that Dragonborn will be launching on the Xbox 360 tomorrow. The team claims that it’s “one of our most ambitious add-ons ever.” That does appear to be the case as the expansion adds Solstheim of Morrowind fame to the game as well as a number of new features like dragon riding and spears.

The publisher also announced that the PC and PS3 versions of Dragonborn will be launching early next year. Previously, PC players have had to wait a month to get the expansions which means Dragonborn should hit sometime in early January. As for PS3 players, they still have not received the two previous expansions. It’s unknown if the PS3 will get Dawnguard and Hearthfire first, or if Bethesda will release all of the expansions on the platform at once.

Skyrim fans with the PS3 version are understandably upset with Bethesda due to the past few months of neglect. It looks like the developer is hoping to finally make it right with Dragonborn, but many readers in our comments were threatening to never buy another Bethesda game after this latest slight. Dragonborn, and the hopeful arrival of the other expansions, can go along way to building back the trust they lost over Dawnguard.

    Bethesda alreagy did their exclucive xbox dlc, at this point Pc has every right to dragonborn as PS3, and xbox. for the record, I have not complained till now, and ive bought a broken game for both Pc and PS3, neither work… at all…and i cant get technical support for Pc. people in my position should be first to get this new content for free, before unoffically extending the exclusive deal with microsoft. I am highly disappointed with bethesda, and wont be letting them have a single cent more from me even if they ever finish fallout 4. Sincerly, pete hine’s arch nemisis.

      It’s never been officially stated, but I assume Hearthfire didn’t exactly count because it wasn’t one of the two planned DLC packs that were to remain exclusive. From what I understand, it was more of a spur of the moment expansion inspired by modding. It was exclusive to the Xbox 360, sure, but I don’t think it was originally part of the exclusivity deal.

      As for your PC problems, do you have any idea what could be wrong? I’m running the PC version of Skyrim just fine, and it seems far more stable than any other version despite a crash or hang up every now and then.

      I understand being frustrated, but if you don’t like it, do as you say and don’t buy any of it. Otherwise, you have no reason to complain. And oddly enough, most people would highly disagree with you that the PC version doesn’t run smoothly. I understand PS3 owners discontent, but if something is wrong with the PC version, odds are you’re either doing something wrong/have something wrong with your computer, or it’s something that can be patched/easily fixed. Just my two cents on that.

    Really looking forward to the Dragonborn Expansion. It definitely looks like much more of a “Shivering Isles” type expansion than Dawnguard was (Not saying it will be, or that Dawnguard was bad, because I truly enjoyed it, simply saying it looks much more in scale with what Shivering Isles was for Oblivion). I can’t wait to see just what all they’ve added with this latest expansion, and can’t wait to burn another 50+ hours into a game that has already dominated so much of my time. Hopefully it comes out soon!

    Is Dragonborn split screen? I really hope so.

    I understand that release of dragon born for ps3 looks good but the concept is ps3 users want what everyone else has which is dawnguard and hearthfire. The fact it is taking so longs looks bad as if they are not even trying to get dawnguard or hearthfire to ps3
