Bethesda’s Dawnguard DLC for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been out for Xbox for close to a month already but the future of the add-on on PS3’s future is in doubt due to a technical problem on the console. The save game frame rate glitch on PS3 is what many consider could be the problem.
On the Bethesda forums, Gstaff addressed the no-show on PS3, stating:
“It’s been a few weeks, and we wanted to make sure everyone knows where we’re at with Dawnguard. Skyrim is a massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources, and things get much more complex when you’re talking about sizeable content like Dawnguard. We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone.
“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.
“We wish we had a more definitive answer right now. We understand the frustration when the same content is not available on all platforms. When we have an update, we will certainly let you know. We deeply appreciate all the time and support you have given us, and we’ll keep doing our best to return that.”
With the newly announced Hearthfire add-on on the horizon, if this issue isn’t sorted out, it could mean that this dlc will share Dawnguard’s fate on PS3.
