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.
