We’ve already told you that the perpetually broken PlayStation 3 version of one of the greatest pieces of interactive digitally-aided  procrastination, The Elder Scrolls: V, would finally be getting the extra content that its Xbox and PC counterparts already have. Now we know when.

In a new post on Bethesda’s Blog, the company’s detailed when exactly people can expect the content.

This week Dragonborn, Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and the 1.8 title update have all cleared certification with SCEA.

What does this mean? It means we now have the official release dates for Skyrim add on content in North America. They are:

  • Dragonborn releases Tuesday, February, 12

It’s kind of odd that each piece of DLC is being released in a wholly different order to the original releases – but the good news is that PS3 players get the best one first; Dragonborn.

In fact, it’s the only one I’d really recommend out of the lot; it feels like an actual expansion and is well worth playing. Dawnguard added some nice Vampire-centric stuff, but ended up feeling flat and Hearthfire is a essentially a giant waste of time and money, unless you really, really like playing house.
