Skyrim ‘Dawnguard’ Expansion Out Now on Steam; PS3 Version Held Back

After a rather long wait, Bethesda has finally released Skyrim‘s Dawnguard expansion on the PC a little over a month after its release on Xbox 360.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the PlayStation 3 version of Dawnguard. Due to the developer not being “satisfied” with the performance of the PlayStation 3 version, Dawnguard’s release on the platform is being held back so that the team can squash any problems.

“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,” Bethesda said in a post over on their official blog.

“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.”

The PC version of Dawnguard, which is available now on Steam, will set you back $19.99. The surprisingly lengthy expansion allows players to become a full-fledged vampire “lord”, complete with new powers. If you prefer killing vampires to being one, you can also side with the Dawnguard to do just that.

Do you think Skyrim‘s Dawnguard expansion is worth the cost?
