Skyrim PS3 DLC Passes U.S. Certification

It looks like Bethesda is in the final stages of releasing the Skyrim DLC for PlayStation 3.

Bethesda Game Studios‘ tweeted on Jan. 30 “PS3 1.8 Update and all 3 DLC have passed Sony America cert . We’re also finalizing certification for EU. Waiting to hear the exact dates.”

Soon PS3 players will have an official announcement for the Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn DLC.

Since June 2012, PS3 players have been awaiting the arrival of Skyrim DLC to their consoles. Controversy built up as the wait extended from weeks to months with little explanation or information from Bethesda. PS3 players became enraged at the lack of concern from Bethesda and many vowed never to purchase the DLCs should they become available or even purchase future Bethesda games. Pete Hines of Bethesda tried to quell anger by asking fans to be patient and stay optimistic, yet their wait continued. With this latest tweet from Bethesda it seems PS3 gamers will soon (perhaps by next month) have release dates for DLC and gamers may possibly begin forgiving Bethesda. Until the official, concrete release dates are unveiled by Bethesda, though, PS3 owners may be wary of and distrust this latest news.

[adsense250itp]Once released PS3 players will have access to all three Skyrim DLCs. The Dawnguard DLC introduces vampires to the treacherous Nordic lands. New enemies, skills, and weapons are included in the positively reviewed DLC. Dawnguard previously cost $20. PS3 players have demanded discounted prices (or even free) DLC due to their wait.

Hearthfire is a much smaller DLC that allows players to build their own mansions and adopt children. Domestic life is good with Hearthfire and the DLC previously sold for $5.

Dragornborn, the most recent Skyrim DLC, is more of an expansion pack than downloadable content. The island of Solstheim is opened for players with over 30 new locations to discover. New enemies, quest lines, characters, items and many other features are included in the Dragonborn expansion. The Dragonborn expansion also cost $20.

It has also been announced through the PlayStation Blog that the DLC will be 50 percent off during the launch week on the PlayStation Network. Though the discount period is severely short, it is a surprising show from Bethesda (or a big grab at some much needed good faith). In the past, some PS3 owners had suggested receiving exclusive items and perks as an apology for Bethesda’s poor handling of the DLC debacle. Though nothing too special is being done for Sony faithful, the discount is certainly great for those already planning to purchase the DLC. The 1.8 patch and DLC certification by Sony is a sign that this difficult journey should soon be over.

Update: This morning Bethesda updated their official blog with the release dates for the three Skyrim DLCs on the PS3. Dragonborn will be out Feb. 12, Hearthfire Feb. 19, and Dawnguard Feb. 26. It looks like the wait is finally over.
