Hearthfire is due out September 4 on the Xbox 360 for 400 MSP. Sorry guys and gals, seems as if this is another 360 exclusive with no PC/PS3 release date in sight.
This DLC will allow you purchase land, build your own house, and even adopt children. Check out the walkthrough video below for all the details:
Skyrim’s DLC ‘Dawngaurd’ is now available for PC. It’s available on Steam for $19.99.
Sadly, the PS3 version of the downloadable content has not been given a date. Bethesda released this statement regarding the PS3 version:
“We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC.
We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.”
I will keep all you PS3 Skyrom players informed as soon as more information is released regarding the ‘Dawngaurd’ DLC.
As you may or may not know, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim’s ‘Dawngaurd’ DLC was released awhile back exclusively for the Xbox 360. When it was released it was said (I’m not sure by whom) that the DLC would be released a month later for the PS3 and the PC, that it was only an Xbox exclusive for a short period of time. Now, things seem to have changed (or not, depending on how you look at it) and the DLC has no release date for other platforms at this time.
Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines tweeted yesterday (July 26):
“We have not announced Dawnguard for any other platform, nor given a timeline for any such news. If we have news, I promise I’d tell you.”
This statement has sent the gaming community into a tizzy and caused a lot of people to become angry. The community is now starting to think that the Dawngaurd DLC is to be an Xbox exclusive and will never be available on other platforms. This is not necessarily the case, no one at Bethesda has said that it will be an exclusive DLC or that it will never come to platforms. It just has yet to be announced.
It’s no secret that Skyrim’s launch on the PS3 was riddled with problems and annoyances for players, redering the game unplayable for some people. Others had to either suffer the bugs, lag, and other problems while waiting for a patch. Bethesda is still patching the PS3 version, almost nine months after the games launch last November. This could be why it’s being postponed and has yet to be given a date of release. There are plenty of other things it could be as well, maybe things that are not as well known.
It’s very unlikely that the Xbox 360 would get an exclusive DLC for Skyrim since that would segregate about half of the game’s fanbase. Game companies may not be perfect, but you’d be hard pressed to find one as notable as Bethesda who is willing to lose the respect and fandom of half their audience. If you wish to go the greedy route, I doubt they would want to miss out on an opportunity to make more money as well.
I say that until we know more, we need to sit back and relax. I’m sure Bethesda will release an official statement or date soon enough.
The Dawngaurd DLC for The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim will be availiable on the Xbox Live Marketplace tomorrow (June 26th), and will cost you 1600 MS points (or $20).
There is no word yet on when the DLC will be available for the PC and PS3.
Word is that the Dawngaurd DLC will have 15 to 20 hours of fresh gameplay in which you can join up with the Vampire Lord Harkon and destroy the Sun, allowing you to become a Vampire Lord yourself – or join up with the Dawngaurd and oppose him.
So 360 owners, get your game on tomorrow with Dawngaurd!
A trailer for the recently unveiled Dawngaurd DLC for The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim was released today. Check it out:
The first DLC for The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim has been announced, and it will be released this summer on the Xbox 360. The DLC is titled “Dawngaurd” and Bethesda is being extremely tight-lipped about details.
Bethesda’s official blog states that more details will be announced at E3 2012. Outside of the above picture that serves as the first artwork for the content, they haven’t had much else to say. We should surely not expect this DLC to be in the same vein as the dreaded horse armor from Skyrim’s predecessor Oblivion. Skyrim’s creative lead Todd Howard has previously stated that we should expect less paid, more full DLC and add-on’s for this title. I think we should gear up for some story content with this DLC, but we will have to wait until E3 to get more details.
Bethesda announced that they will soon be adding Kinect support to Skyrim, adding over 200 voice commands. This means that instead of performing shouts at the TV like an insane person, you can actually shout and have it mean something. You can Fus Ro Dah everyone and everything in Skyrim simply with your beautiful voice.
This feature is supposed to come out later this month as a free title update. There is more that just shouting too, there will also be voice commands for hotkey equipping, follower command, and all menus. You will also be able to create and load save data. It’s also been said that “Skyrim’s Kinect for Xbox 360 Support also adds new functionality including special map functions, additional hotkey options, and the ability to sort inventory items by name, weight, and value.”
So keep your eyes, and ears, open for the new update and remember, when you hear your neighbor shouting at the TV make sure you shout right back!
