Bethesda today announced North American release dates for the long-absent Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim downloadable content for PlayStation 3. The Dragonborn, Dawnguard, and Hearthfire expansions, and the 1.8 title update, have all cleared certification with Sony and will begin to roll out in two weeks.

No Caption Provided

Dragonborn will launch first on Tuesday, February 12; Hearthfire drops a week later on February 19, with Dawnguard rounding out the group when it arrives February 26. All expansions will be marked down 50 percent during their first week.

Bethesda has yet to confirm release dates for the Skyrim DLC for PS3 gamers in Europe and other territories. This information will be shared once it becomes available.

The PC version of Skyrim will add the Dragonborn expansion February 5 through Steam. It will be available in multiple languages, including English, French, Italian, Spanish, and German.

In October, Bethesda explained that the missing Skyrim DLC for PS3 was "our problem, and it's on us to fix it." Prior to that, the company said potentially unsolvable issues could keep Dawnguard from ever releasing for PS3.

i'll pick it up for sure for %50 off. unlike many people apparently, i continued playing this game without the dlc A LOT. sure it annoyed the hell out of me that bethesda kept delaying and making unkept promises but it never stopped me from playing the game ever since it came out. still my favorite game and i look forward to the DLC. For Skyrim in particular, i didnt think i needed the dlc because the game was so much fun to begin with. im not running out of things to do in it yet. sad i missed out on the dragonborn add on for %50 off though

Ya that's all well and good that PS3 owners can finally access this DLC, but has Bethesda actually FIXED the fucking PS3 version of this game? Or are they just piling crap on crap?


So glad I forced EB Games to exchange my PS3 version for the PC version (and believe me, it wasn't easy).

@The_Gump The big issue was they couldnt get the PS3 DLC versions to stick to your psn account name, and anyone could use the same DLC codes to download it on anyones PSN name with one purchase.

Will be hard getting myself invested in the game again after all this time, despite how much I love it. I'm glad it's arrived but it has been too long.

I've been waiting to get the GOTY on PS3 and finally replay this awesome game again. I have it for 360, but I'm not buying the dlc for that. I try not to give Microsoft my business anymore. They've robbed me of enough money. It sucks Bethesda's had such a tough time getting the dlc to work on the PS3. I guess the lousy amount of RAM and the weird architecture were just too much. Still I'll probably pick up a used copy of Skyrim and buy the dlc at half price now. I'm looking forward to returning to Morrowind and Skyrim again! Even if it is over a year later.

I wouldn't hesitate to use subversive means to get MEANINGFUL and COOL things on the PS3 such as backwards compatibility, not M-sludge, and I am not opposed to employing ninja...

Meh, I don't care anymore for Skyrim. Don't get me wrong, I'm a massive TES fan... But I'm sick and tired of waiting and hearing of 'DLC coming soon for PS3' but that was like 5 months ago... I sincerely can't be bothered.

@Scorchstar I'm with you on this. Besides, this DLC is going out with a lot of bugs still. I could bet on that. Bethesda has very low quality standards.

Congrats to ps3 and really encourage those who have not played skyrim and its DLC to give it a try, you should not deny yourself this gaming experience. Alot of assholes go on about xbox had it long before - so what you can now play it with a lot less bugs and more refined, and with all the dlc at 50% off - and even pick the main game up pretty cheap also. All of the elitists douchbags going on about how much better it looks on PC with all their mods - ignore them - when you put Skyrim side by side, pc and console - yes the pc does look better - but does it really look $750 gaming machine better- that is upto you. One thing you cannot argue is that it still looks eye bleeding amazing on a console and is one of the best experiences out there. Enjoy.

Though having played it on both pc and xbox - i will admit yelling Fus Ro Dah at the kinect has been a blast, I cannot believe how much fun voice controls have been via kinect - true my friends and neighbors think I am nuts but how often have they ordered an ally to attack a troll while still casting magic... huh, what I thought, yeah now who looks silly.

So a year and 3 months after the original release we get DLC. Wow, that is almost pointless to me. Pass all the way. I know it took Dark Souls about a year, but they didn't even plan on DLC and Dark Souls>Skyrim all day long.

Since I haven't finished Skyrim and all the DLC is 50% off in the first week, I guess I'll pick it up. If it had released a full price, I would have surely passed on it after the way Bethesda has s***ted on the PS3 and its fans.

@los1t It was never a matter of "care." They didn't just say "**** Sony XD" Considering they originally stated that it might not even be possible to release Dawnguard, and yet now theres an official release date, means they we're doing what they could with the resources available.

Back up your save game. I have a suspicion that there are going to be bugs. Game-breaking bugs. But it's nice to finally be able to play this.

@LordelX I really hope that's not the case.

After all the times it took them to release the DLC, if any gamebreaking bugs come with thoses DLC, Bathesda can be sure they will never any of my money again.

I plan to buy the DLC content because I want to play the DLC content. That does not make me "a dumb ass" though. I do what I want with MY money.

Hoping for the best for the PS3 users that might get it. Personally, I would wait for the GoTY edition.

Bethesda already safety-netted themself by stating that DLC for PS3 might not come out at all...so don't be a beggar who gets 5$ and asks for 10$ ;) Just be glad it came out at all.

Go buy the GOTY edition, it'll come out for sure.

I may pick it up early (because of the 50%) but also as a thanks for not abandoning us PS3 owners. They could have easily said, our programming is too costly to fix so we're not doing it. Although part of me wishes I had gotten the xbox version instead.

@CHROMEFLAMIN Yup. I sold my ps3 copy last August. I was fed up with the game to begin with and the delayed dlc just made it an easy decision.

"All expansions will be marked down 50 percent during their first week."

At least they are %50 off. Unlike Activision, they sell DLC on PC/PS3 LATE and at FULL price.
