Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC coming to PlayStation 3 and PC in early 2013

The Dragonborn downloadable content pack for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim will hit PlayStation 3 and PC in early 2013, Bethesda announced on its blog today.

The content is scheduled to hit tomorrow for Xbox 360. While the first two expansion packs Dawnguard and Hearthfire received a short window of exclusivity for Xbox 360 players, they were both released around a month later for PC and remain missing on PS3.

Bethesda expressed difficulty at bringing Dawngaurd to PS3 in June, stating the developer had no definitive answer as to when the content will be available or if any future DLC would be feasible on Sony's console.

"The PS3 is a powerful system, and we're working hard to deliver the content you guys want," a company administrator wrote on the game's official forums. "Dawnguard is obviously not the only DLC we've been working on either, so the issues of adding content get even more complicated. This is not a problem we're positive we can solve, but we are working together with Sony to try to bring you this content."

In October, Bethesda's Pete Hines Tweeted that the lack of Skyrim DLC for PS3 was not Sony's fault, and that neither companies had more information on the release of Dawnguard and Hearthfire. In early November the company stated that DLC for PS3 was on the way, and thanked players for their patience.
