Bethesda Releases New Skyrim Patch

by on July 23, 2012
 

Bethesda has released a new Skyrim 1.7 beta update and it is currently going live for PC players who are opted in via Steam. The new patch focuses mainly on stability issues, bugs, and Kinect voice issues for various languages. Bethesda recently put out a lot of Skyrim content recently with update 1.6 and its first DLC Skyrim: Dawnguard, and still have a lot of porting issues to deal with in the coming weeks.

PS3 owners should be both happy and sad to hear that patch 1.6’s content, which includes mounted combat, will be combined with the updates in patch 1.7. This means a longer wait, but at least the content is coming to the platform.

Dawnguard will come to the PS3 eventually as well, but we do not know exactly when because since Bethesda has an exclusive deal with Microsoft, they are not allowed to talk about specifics. News of when Dawnguard should be hitting the PS3 and PC will probably come out by the end of the month.

Here are the updates coming in patch 1.7 for Skyrim. Again, this is currently just a beta release for PC. We will have an update when the full release is announced.

• 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)
• Fixed issue with Dawnguard Kinect-enabled dragon shouts for French, German, Italian and Spanish (Xbox 360)
