All PS3“Skyrim” fans have been waiting for Bethesda to finally fix all the issues and release the “Dawnguard” DLC, but now it looks like it may never happen. Multiple sites, including Tech and Trend and Gaming Blend, report that Bethesda has announced issues with the DLC that is causing it to not function on its own. They add that the issues are potentially a detriment to all future DLC for “Skyrim.”
This announcement comes on the heels of yet another DLC release for the popular RPG. The recent DLC is titled “Hearthfire” and adds-on the ability to buy land and build a home. It also allows for children, possible servants, and conflict with people trying to attack the new homestead. This DLC was released for the Xbox 360 on September 4th. There is no release date for the PC version, and as stated above there seems to be a possibility that it will never be released for the PS3.
The lack of DLC for PS3 owners is a definite downside for Bethesda. There still stands to reason that a good many PS3 owners will leave “Skyrim” completely out of sheer frustration. This could also potentially cause issues for Sony’s sales if diehard fans switch from PS3 to PC or Xbox 360. One can only hope that Bethesda can correct the issues they are having, and that they DLC will be playable for PS3 gamers.
