Skyrim: Bethesda ‘close’ to delivering PS3 DLC, thanks everyone for their patience

Skyrim developer Bethesda Game Studios has said new Skyrim DLC for the PS3 and PC versions of its dragony adventure are ‘close’. The update came via Twitter and offered no further information, although the dev also tweeted ‘Thanks to all our fans. We think you'll love the new stuff. We know it takes us time and thanks for all your support and patience!’

Bethesda hasn’t released any of Skyrim’s three add-on packs--Dawnguard, Hearthfire, Dragonborn--for PS3, blaming performance issues. Last month, Bethesda’s vice president of marketing, Pete Hines, also chose Twitter to update on the situation, although the update was that there was no update: “I don't have any info on Hearthfire, Dawnguard, or DLC in general for PS3. We're still on it. Will share update when I have one."

So while this latest update from Bethesda Game Studios still doesn’t offer anything as solid as an actual DLC delivery schedule for PS3 owners, it’s an indication that the dev has made a breakthrough in making the game run--at the very least--to an acceptable standard on Sony’s machine.

Skyrim Dragonborn DLC is scheduled to release for Xbox 360 on 4 December.

    my roomate's ex-wife got paid $12108 last week. she is making income on the laptop and bought a $357900 house. All she did was get fortunate and put in action the instructions uncovered on this website""""" KEY16.COM """""

    No wonder she's his ex-wife if he's living with a guy that has to spam on video game website comment boards.

    I'd rather put 150 hours into Halo 4 and get paid $10 by Microsoft.

    It better be at a discount...

    Good news? *GASP!*. Well, I hope they get this fixed and release the content on PS3, I hope this is the actual DLC, and not some extra cosmetic stuff no one really wants. Of course, it would be awesome if they release some extra free content for PS3 users alongside the official DLC as an apology gift, though I'm mainly hoping to get at least $5 off somewhere. Anyways, I'm probably going to wait for the inevitable GOTY Edition of Skyrim, it'd probably be cheaper that way, and right now I'm putting my money into games that delivered on time, like Assassin's Creed 3, and in a few days, Black Ops 2. Still, I will be waiting for any official announcement on the matter.

    do they mean they've almost got the PS3 DLC to be only as glitchy as the vanilla release? I cant wait for all 3 to be released (probably 4 DLC by the time it comes round) and everyone will have to fork out $80-100 for the DLC packs alone. Granted these DLCs are taking a lot of time and effort (and I haven't looked into them much as I can't get them yet), but do they offer extra locations like the Fallout 3 DLC or is it more cosmetic DLC such as being able to own your own house and not expanding on the story at all? If it's the latter, then I'll just not bother at all when it come round to it

    To answer your question about the DLC in the simplest forms, both Dawnguard and the upcoming Dragonborn DLC indeed have new locations to explore (the latter of which will give us an entire island to play with), among other new goodies. Hearthfire, however, is the latter - build a house (or three) and decorate it. Nothing too special, but unlike Dawnguard and Dragonborn, it's only $5, and even that gives us some new cooking recipes and food items if you're into that sort of thing.

    Release says "new Skyrim content for PS3 and PC." Doesn't mention Dawnguard or Hearthfire, which PC already has. I bet it is something like a weapons pack or the horse armor from Oblivion. I'm not getting my hopes up that this will be actual, playable story line addition.

    All I'm saying is, if we do get it don't complain. Don't get angry if it's glitchy or something. Be happy we got the DLC at all.

    After the time PS3 owners were forced to wait while the 360 has had Dawnguard for months, Bethesda should give it to PS3 owners for half price.
