Field Report: Skyrim 'Dragonborn' - an expansion in every sense

Field Report: Skyrim 'Dragonborn' - an expansion in every sense

When I initially played the previous downloadable content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, nothing seemed amiss. The handful of new areas and pieces of loot littered around the familiar landscape were what I had come to expect from DLC. But now that I've played the "Dragonborn" expansion, the others simply pale in comparison. It's more ambitious, more thematically relevant, and a perfect example of Bethesda's promise to take its time with fully-featured content.

Skyrim's 'Dragonborn' taking precedence over previous DLC on PS3

If you were unlucky enough to pick the PlayStation 3 as your platform of choice for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, your hopes for extra content have been as cold and barren as Skyrim itself. The Xbox 360 has been first to the party due to exclusivity arrangements, and the PC has the mod scene to keep it occupied while it waits, but Bethesda has had serious setbacks on PS3. The company has announced that it is putting aside the PS3 releases of Dawnguard and Hearthfire for the time being to focus on the latest expansion, Dragonborn.
