We’ve all drooled over the trailer (below), smirked at the odd pictures, and mulled over the rumors surrounding Dragonborn, the upcoming DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. At the same time, many skeptics have wondered if this next add-on will be something more substantial than the two previous installments of DLC, Dawnguard and Hearthfire. Just one day before this next round of new content hits XBox Live, Pete Hines, Bethesda’s PR man, commented via Twitter to quell any fans’ concerns:
We think Dragonborn is our best add-on for Skyrim yet, and we didn’t want fans to wait long for it, so that’s our current focus.
In addition, he indicated that more DLC will follow, giving us more Skyrim content to look forward to in 2013:
As far as other DLCs, we’re not done working on Skyrim content. We’ll let everyone know when we have new details/info to share.
And finally, speaking of 2013, Hines Tweeted that PS3 gamers can FINALLY expect to see some Skyrim DLC hitting their consoles early next year as Dragonborn will be available on PSN, as well as PC:
Happy to announce that Dragonborn DLC will be available on PS3 (HOORAY!!!) and PC (also Hooray!) early next year.
While he made no mention of other DLCs heading to the PS3, we can hope that Dragonborn’s arrival is an indication that Bethesda worked through whatever issues were holding up the process and Dawnguard and Hearthfire will follow shortly. XBox 360 gamers will be able to get their hands on Dragonborn tomorrow, Dec. 4th, for 1600 MS Points. PS3 and PC gamers will have to drop $19.99 whenever the DLC becomes available “early next year.” We’ll keep our eyes peeled to see if we can narrow that down to a specific date for you folks. In the meantime, stay tuned to OnlySP for more news and make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-the-minute information.
