At long last Dawnguard, the expansion of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, has been released on Steam for PC, as announced by Bethesda Softworks at QuakeCon 2012. Unfortunately not all news are good, given that the PS3 version of the coveted add-on seems to be still in the air.
In a brief note on the BethBlog, the developer announced that things aren’t yet looking good enough for a release:
We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.
Maybe, just maybe, it would be a good idea to drop this rather underwhelming temporary exclusive idea the next time around, isn’t it Bethesda? Scratch that, maybe the industry as a while should, as it causes nothing but trouble.
I know, not going to happen, but one can always dream…
