Sony has provided an update regarding the absence of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim downloadable content for the PlayStation 3, but it isn't good news for fans. Bethesda vice president of public relations and marketing Pete Hines wrote on Twitter that there is nothing to share.

Skyrim DLC is no closer to the PS3.

"I don't have any info on Hearthfire, Dawnguard, or DLC in general for PS3," he said. "We're still on it. Will share update when I have one."

Skyrim's first add-on--the vampire-themed Dawnguard expansion--came to Xbox 360 in June, with a release in August for PC following the Xbox 360's 30-day exclusivity. It may never come to the PS3, according to comments from a Bethesda representative in August.

Though PS3 fans are left to wait for Skyrim DLC, PC gamers can download the game's Hearthfire content--which came to Xbox 360 in August--beginning today. It is available for $5 allows players to purchase land and build a home from the ground up. Players can furnish their abodes with an armory, alchemy laboratory, and a garden, where they can craft items for use in the game. Those who want the job done more quickly can hire a steward to purchase materials and furnish their homes for them.

Once a home is completed, players can move in with their spouse and even adopt a child through the game's new adoption system. Home ownership comes with its own tasks and perils, with players needing to raise their children and defend their home from giants, as well as other nasty creatures.
