Finally, some good news for PC-based 'Skyrim' fans.
Per reports, developer Bethesda has confirmed that highly awaited Dragonborn DLC for 'Skyrim' will be made available for PC gamers on Feb. 5. The new DLC will finally bring new towns, dungeons, and quests to all PC players for the first time since making its debut on Xbox 360.
The DLC is now set to arrive on PC next month, and will be available via Steam, including the English, French, Italian, Spanish and German versions of the content.
The DLC has arrived first for Xbox 360 players since Bethesda has signed an exclusivity deal with Microsoft which binds the company to release all the existing DLCs as well as the ones planned for the future earlier on the Microsoft-based console.
Although this maybe a partnership between Bethesda and Microsoft, needless to say, PC gamers have not taken the decision without much frustration, and rightfully so as the game does boast a decent number of gamers on PC.
PC gamers have been annoyed for quite some time waiting for the highly popular Dragonborn DLC, and one of them, only recently, attacked Bethesda's PR manager, Pete Hines on Twitter. The allegation came when Hines revealed that PlayStation 3 owners would be getting a discount on all upcoming DLCs for Skyrim (Dawngaurd is yet to be released on PlayStation 3 and is planned for a release alongside the Dragonborn DLC).
The disgruntled fans asked Hines on Twitter: "Do PC users get discounts to make up for the extraordinary and repeated DLC delays? Or are we just second-class customers?"
Although Hines responded that there was a Steam discount on Skyrim a couple of days ago, the fan confirmed that his question was related to the DLC and not the actual game, and continued: "All PC DLC has been at least one month late - two in Dragonborn's case. Late but full price release == less value for patronage."
However, Hines responded that he didn't agree with the fan and that Bethesda had already released the creation kit, implemented user mod support, and workshop integration exclusively for PC gamers. The fan later wrote that he didn't agree with Bethesda's current "Consoles first" policy.
"Dragonborn out Feb. 5 for PC. Also out for PS3 in Feb (date TBA), followed by Hearthfire and Dawnguard (also Feb.) Each 50% off first week," Hines confirmed.
