Remember when everyone (even us) was recently doubting that Dawnguard would ever come to PC or PS3? That dark age is over, as the Skyrim expansion is now available on PC via Steam and will also be coming to PS3 once it’s been properly optimized.
Bethesda has announced today at Quakecon 2012 that Dawnguard has released on Steam, and to ‘celebrate’, Skyrim itself is 50% off for a limited time. It’s a sudden announcement, but a welcome one.
It was also stated that Dawnguard would eventually be coming to PS3 once its performance on PS3 is sorted out and optimized. Knowing previous Bethesda releases on PS3, this is a very good thing.
We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.
Make sure to follow OnlySP for more sudden but welcome news.
