If you’re a PlayStation 3 owner hoping to play the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC, you might be in store for a bit of disappointment. While Bethesda is certainly working on it, there seems to be an issue with transferring the content to Sony’s platform. Simply put, it’s kind of hard to do. “Skyrim is a massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources, and things get much more complex when you’re talking about sizable content like Dawnguard,” wrote Bethesda. “We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone.”
The developer is reportedly working alongside Sony to see what can be done, but as of right now, bringing Dawnguard to the PlayStation 3 isn’t looking very promising. “The PS3 is a powerful system, and we’re working hard to deliver the content you guys want. 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.”
It really is a shame that PlayStation 3 gamers who dig Skyrim might not be able to enjoy some beefy DLC. Even more upsetting is the fact that this seems like it could be the case for the next content expansion, Hearthfire. When Skyrim first released on the PlayStation 3, it was loaded with nasty bugs and horrible performance issues. These problems have since been largely addressed, but it looks like Bethesda is still struggling to develop for the system. Here’s hoping the studio finds a way to deliver Dawnguard and ultimately Hearthfire to the PlayStation 3.
