Share And Comment

Another Skyrim patch for the masses has been released by developer Bethesda, with the Beta version of the 1.7 title update available to those on Steam. The update will eventually make its way to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, with the developer promising more details as soon as possible. For Playstation 3 gamers, update 1.6 that landed on the Xbox 360 in June will be rolled into update 1.7, with Mounted Combat, new bug fixes, and support for Skyrim’s upcoming game add-on for the console, Dawnguard.

The update is mostly bug fixes, with crashes being stamped out and the Kinect getting some well needed technical treatment. To get a better understanding of what to expect with update 1.7, check out the list below:
Bug Fixes
  • General memory and stability optimizations
  • Fixed crash related to new water shaders
  • Fixed rare crash related to dragon landings
  • Fixed logic error with loading screens from add-ons (Xbox 360)
  • Using vampiric grip and swimming no longer prevents swimming animation from playing afterwards
  • Improved recognition with Kinect voice commands (Xbox 360)
  • Kinect-enabled dragon language shouts for French, German, Italian and Spanish work properly (Xbox 360)
  • Fixed issue with Dawnguard Kinect-enabled dragon shouts for French, German, Italian and Spanish (Xbox 360)
With the update being available to console soon enough, expect the Dawnguard expansion to land on Playstation 3 soon as well.

When not fighting crime, I dabble in the art of online journalism. Alright, maybe it's not as exciting as headbutting everyday felons like a modern Bruce Wayne, but I need something that doesn't involve bludgeoning something. Get my kicks playing on a fat 80gb PS3, really need an upgrade......and a shave.
