Bethesda has filed a trademark on the name "Hearthfire" confirming the rumors of a new DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim which spread earlier this summer. There are little details, but it has been confirmed that it will release a month early on Xbox 360 consoles similar to "Dawnguard" However, Playstation 3 users fear that Hearthfire will be officially announced before they can even get their hands on Dawnguard.
As most of you will be aware, PS3 users are yet to receive the Dawnguard DLC expansion, with Bethesda recently stating on Twitter that they didn’t have an update on the situation or when it will finally be available for purchase. This has led to considerable anger as you can imagine, but could we be facing a prospect where Bethesda are already planning to announce Hearthfire as the next expansion for Xbox 360
Xbox 360 users will get Hearthfire or the next expansion first once again, signaling the end of Bethesda’s deal with Microsoft to have the first two DLC packs release first on Xbox 360 before PC and PS3 users. We’re now approaching September and there’s still no hint of information on whether Dawnguard will be
out on PS3 before then.
