Skyrim downloadable content is finally coming to PlayStation 3 next month, Bethesda announced on the company blog. PC players will also be able to play Skyrim’s Dragonborn DLC on Feb. 5.

All three DLC packs for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim will be releasing for PS3 in February. Dragonborn will be the first DLC to arrive on the PlayStation Network. Hearthfire will release second, followed by Dawnguard.

Bethesda will offer each content package for 50 percent off the regular price during its first week of launch on PSN.

In addition, the PS3 version of Skyrim will receive the 1.8 update prior to the launch of Dragonborn. No exact release dates for any of the Skyrim content for PS3 was given.

The developer also announced Dragonborn is also making its way to the PC version of Skyrim. The expansion will release on Feb. 5 through Steam. Dragonborn for PC will be available in multiple languages, including English, French, Italian, Spanish and German.

It has been a long road to get Skyrim DLC on PS3. Skyrim was released on Nov. 11, 2011. The first Skyrim DLC, Dawnguard, was announced all the way back in June and released on Xbox 360 soon after. As PS3 players grew angry at Bethesda, the developer went back and forth with Sony on why Skyrim DLC was not being released on PS3. In December, it was revealed the PS3 version of Skyrim would finally be getting additional content, but, by that time, it was questionable if PS3 players would even care. Bethesda has confessed the delay in Skyrim bonus content for Sony’s console was their fault. Regardless of the awkward path to release, it is rare for DLC to be coming out for a game so long after it hit store shelves.

Fortunately, Gaming Illustrated has writers who play Xbox 360. Check out Rachel Gray’s reviews Dawnguard (here) and Hearthfire (here) from when the DLC packs initially released.
