Video game publisher Bethesda says that those who are playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the PlayStation 3 will first be able to get access to the Dragonborn downloadable content pack and will only then receive the older Dawnguard and Hearthfire.
An official post on the Bethesda blog states, ”On PS3 in particular, we turned our attention to Dragonborn, as we thought it was the best content to release first, and we didn’t want folks to wait longer.”
Dragonborn is the most recent adventure pack for Skyrim, at the moment only available on the Xbox 360 from Microsoft.
Those who get the new content will be able to travel to a new area, an island of Morrowind, and will meet new types of enemies and more dragons while exploring new towns and getting access to at least one companion.
It adds, “Once it’s ready to go for everyone, we’ll continue our previous work on Hearthfire and Dawnguard for PS3. Each one takes a lot of time and attention to work well in all circumstances and all combinations of DLC. Once we have a better idea of release timing and pricing, we’ll let you know.”
Gamers who prefer the Sony home console or the PC are set to receive access to Dragonborn during the first month of next year.
Bethesda has been committed in its support for the PlayStation 3 version of Skyrim, which was plagued by some huge bugs on launch.
The publisher has introduced a number of patches in order to bring the experience to a playable state and it also plans to make all DLC available.
Apparently, the development team working on Skyrim plans to introduce at least another big piece of content for the game even as it is prototyping ideas for the next title in the series.
