This week sees the release of some of that lovely Skyrim DLC that PS3 owners have been waiting so patiently (or not) for. Dragonborn will arrive on the PSN in North America and English-speaking parts of the PAL regions (EU, AUS and NZ) as part of this week’s PSN Store update, with Hearthfire and Dawnguard arriving over the following two weeks.
Those staggered releases will be welcomed to PSN with a 50 per cent discount for the first week they’re on sale. That means discounts from £12.99 to £6.49 for Dragonborn and Dawnguard, with the less substantial Hearthfire dropping from £3.99 to £1.99. PS3 owners had assumed that this discount, announced on the Bethesda Blog, was by way of an apology for taking so long to get the DLC to them. That’s not the case.
Microsoft mouthpiece, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, has disclosed via his company blog that those 360 owners yet to buy into the epic fantasy game’s DLC will also see a nice 50 per cent discount between the 19th and 25th of February. That puts the more substantial Dragonborn and Dawnguard DLC packs at 800MSP (roughly £6.80) and Hearthfire at 200MSP (roughly £1.70).
Tardy Xbox 360 owners will also get the chance to partake in discounted DLC for Bethesda’s other take on the Elder Scrolls universe, Oblivion, with Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles DLC available at a 50 per cent discount too.
