Skyrim Dawnguard DLC release time confusion: LIVE
Confusion surrounding the release time of Skyrim Dawnguard DLC will have fans who expect it today searching to see when it will actually land in their region, and although details of this were unpredictable due to the beta, many gamers have the opportunity to get their hands on the expansion today.
The lucky ones here are the Xbox 360 owners, as those expecting to play soon on the PS3 or PC will have to wait another month. The Skyrim DLC on the Xbox is available today between 6AM and 7AM PST translating to 9/10AM EST and 2/3PM in the UK, and will set gamers back 1,600 points, which is pretty good value considering the Shivering Isles expansion for Oblivion was 2400 Microsoft points.
The release date for this was highlighted in yesterday’s article over on Product Reviews, and in that they mention a recent tweet from the official Bethesda account and the Xbox Live updates giving a clear release time. This exclusive is also said to be only available in the English versions, so it will probably be another month before other languages are accessible.
By the time this goes out many of you will have had the chance to obtain this DLC and we sympathize with those waiting patiently for the PlayStation and PC versions to come. Do you feel that 1,600 points for this DLC is a good deal? Are you hoping that this will be the start of more downloadable content? Maybe you feel that Xbox Live should issue notifications telling you exactly when this DLC is available alerting users of clear news on release time to avoid any confusion.
Update: Dawnguard is now live on Xbox Live, now all you need to do is download, install and make your choice between good and evil.
