The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Skyrim DLC? Bethesda's Not Done With It Yet

With Dragonborn set to provide a hefty slice of additional content and quests for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on PS3 in 2013, Bethesda has today declared that it's not finished with DLC for the epic fantasy RPG just yet.

Surely, that's assuming that the studio gets around to getting all of the previous DLC (Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn) on to the PlayStation 3 before then. Presumably...

"We think Dragonborn is our best add-on for Skyrim yet, and we didn’t want fans to wait long for it, so that’s our current focus," tweeted Bethesda PR guru, Pete Hines. "As far as other DLCs, we’re not done working on Skyrim content. We’ll let everyone know when we have new details/info to share."

Dragonborn is set to head to Skyrim on PS3 in 2013. Wanna see a dragonmount? Look at the image below! Good, innit?

Skyrim should be banned from the news feed until real news occur.

It looks great. Here's hoping they get everything sorted for the DLCs. Minus the bugs, I thoroughly enjoyed Skyrim, so I'm not going to overly moan that the PS3 DLC is taking its sweet time.

Let's hope they're not just saying that to get us off their backs. Wouldn't put it past them.

If its true they already have a rough guess on when Dragonborn will hit PS3, why doesn't just Bethesda admit Microsoft paid them off to not release the first two DLC's at all for PS3, instead of sounding like the most incompetent coders around...?

Just Boycott Besthesa geez. You people still buy there games and support them. By the way PS3 is only getting Dragonborn Expansion. Bethesda will be charging PS3 owners for it too. Besthesa thinks there the best developer when there not.

"Not Done With It Yet" - that was a good one. They haven't even started with it yet.

Yeah, reading skyrim news is always depressing for me, as I was super anxious to have the DLC so that I would have an excuse to get back into skyrim.

Not getting the DLC miffed me a bit.

Bethesda couldn't code their way out of a wet paper sack.

I'm so done with not only Bethesda, but Skyrim. Got it release day, plat'd in February, took a break thinking I'd save my character, then started playing recently and felt content with simply stopping - being done.

Just about the only thing I'll be supporting with Bugthesda's logo on it will be Dishonored, from here on out. And, that's because its only published, not developed, by them... which means A: it'll run on all platforms and B: the DLC will, too.

I'll probably buy Fallout 4 down the line used and on sale... 'cuz I love the Fallout series, but I just can't support this company's development practices anymore.

@5 Pfffft... Microsoft doesn't need to pay them off to keep DLC from you. Bethesda already favors the 360 and Windows, i mean PC, since they've been working with those 2 platforms the longest. enough with the goddamn conspiracy theories. if they gave us Xbox users more Oblivion content solely for making the elder scrolls popular on consoles then chances are this is them thanking Microsoft yet again. but who knows, maybe you will see all three DLC's. or maybe you wont.

Stop blaming Microsoft for having deep pockets cause honestly that shit is getting tiring. blame Sony for not securing content for you instead. not like they could anyways, Microsoft and Bethesda will always have that bond. that.... and they can outbid Sony for any Content if they really wanted to. trust me Microsoft would just pay to get Permanent exclusivity if that was the case. but they didn't, so you should feel lucky.

The deal was that we got the first 2 DLC's a month earlier. and it looks like we get a third for a month. but of course sony fanboys will assume Microsoft payed them off again. even though Microsoft never announced that it was true. nobody frigging knows who set up what this time. all i know is i'm tired of people dragging Microsoft's name into the mud just because you can't play any DLC.

Hop off Microsoft already.

this crap is between Bethesda and Sony. i mean come on, Microsoft has better shit to worry about then making sure you don't get any Skyrim DLC. it sold more on xbox anyway.

oh and Bethesda really is incompetent when it comes to your console. they only made 2 games for you and they were both buggy and laggy messes. Fallout 3 and Skyrim. luckily i bought those on xbox. oblivion worked for you because well... Bethesda didn't make your version. just a fact.

White knighting for Microsoft and Bethesda?! You actually sound like a Microsoft fanboy. Just look at your post. How are you going to call anyone here a "fanboy"?!

White knighting? lol come off it dude. of course i'm going to defend Microsoft i play on their console the most, but that's a non factor and besides the point. they're not the reason why you still can't play any DLC, Bethesda is. i mean, they've said that how many times? but some people here are to daft to accept this. it's one thing to blame Bethesda because well... they are the only ones to blame for you not having any DLC yet. just leave Microsoft out of it, and that is all....

every time i scroll through the same sad comments... and there will be at least 3 people blaming Microsoft. so obviously i'm thinking to myself like, wtf? people knew of the DLC exclusivity which came and went.

even though i couldn't give a rats ass what any of you think, i'm no fanboy, i have an Xbox360 a PC a Wii and obviously a ps3 or i wouldn't be wasting my time here. it's really not my problem you can't handle the truth. if somebody isn't mindlessly bashing Microsoft or Bethesda(in this case) they must be a fanboy? ugh!!!

anyways ive said all that i had to say for now, tootles.

After getting the Plat on the original game, then getting shafted time and time again for the DLC, I sold the game.

Bethesda will not get me to buy a copy again, hell I wont even buy a used one, unless the DLc is either...
A: Free
B: $4.99 or less AND uncludes a apology for the PS3 community.

If they ask $9.99 for it, I will go without it, just like I have since getting shafted the first time around.

@18 Microsoft could be at fault here. If they hadn't gotten that one month earlier DLC bullshit deal, Bethesda might actually have gotten the Skyrim DLC on PS3 out on time seeing as it would release universally at the same time. There's no need to tell people that they shouldn't bring MS into this, when they have some of the blame as well. Then again, being an MS "representative" here doesn't exactly make you humble, does it?

So you're bitching about bitching? lol
Obviously people are going to point the finger at microsoft. Mainly because 360 is their baby and the exclusivity thing. Those that point the the finger at bethesda do so because regardless of what console they've worked on the longest, they've had since '06 and 4+ big name games to get used to working on a ps3. Considering that they're such a high earning company with high sales, you think they'd make more effort. Afterall, this isn't their first ps3 release let alone their first DLC release (and certainly not their first DLC problem)
In the end people have a right to be annoyed when they've forked out hundreds of dollars and been seemingly ignored by a dev for their 'favourite child' (360). The fact that you think you can waddle your ass into a thread of annoyed fans and tell them they're wrong for being annoyed must mean you have some sort of answers..? Something we haven' heard before..? You don't? Then stfu. Microsoft has done plenty of the years to deserve any number of people being pissed at them and you choose THIS thread to matyr yourself and make yourself look like an idiot? Tsk tsk..
If you want to bitch about bitching, wait for a "This week on PSN" an have winge over CS:GO/Retro City. lol

Oh man, I almost forgot about Skyrim, what with Borderlands 2 being so fun (and actually having DLC).
