Timed exclusivity is a terrible and insulting thing. Still, it gives us all the opportunity to be excited about Skyrim DLC all over again. Bethesda announced today that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's latest DLC, Dragonborn, will be coming to PC and PS3 (yes, PS3) in February. PC players can expect the DLC on February 5, but it's a little more complicated for PlayStation 3 Skyrim fans.
Take a deep breath, PS3 gamers. During February, all DLC for Skyrim will be released for the PlayStation 3. Starting with patch 1.8 Bethesda is going to make sure all DLC will be available as soon as possible. After 1.8 is released Dragonborn will soon follow, then Hearthfire and then Dawnguard. Due to the scope of these releases the exact release dates aren't finalized, but expect updates very soon. In addition, all DLC will launch at 50% off for a week after its release. THE TIME IS NOW!
I'm not even going to start about how delayed this is for PlayStation 3 fans, because I know it's a very sensitive issue. What's done is done, and now everyone can get back to happily collecting cabbages and cheese wheels without worrying about timed exclusivity and Bethesda short-changing PlayStation 3 gamers.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC (and other DLC too) will be coming to PC and PS3 players starting in February. Mark your schedules!
