And on consoles 'soon'.
The Skyrim Patch 1.7 has arrived on Steam. A console release is expected to arrive soon.
The update features lots of bugfixes.
Bethesda has confirmed that the Skyrim Patch 1.7 is no longer in Beta and is now available for PC users through Steam.
The publisher said that console manufacturers would get the update this week.
Here are the changes:"Skyrim’s 1.7 title update is now out of beta and available to all Steam users. Simply load up Skyrim on Steam and you’ll get the update. For those on consoles, the current plan is to submit the update to console manufacturers this week. As soon as it’s available, we’ll let you know."
Note the inclusion of a Dawnguard fix related to the Vampire Lord skill ‘Vampiric Grip.’- General memory and stability optimizations
- Fixed crash related to new water shaders
- Fixed rare crash related to dragon landings
- Using vampiric grip and swimming no longer prevents swimming animation from playing afterwards
And, like Bethesda stated, Skyrim update 1.7 will also hit Xbox 360 and will include a few Dawnguard and Kinect-specific fixes:
PS3 players will also finally get Patch 1.6's mounted combat when the new one arrives.- Fixed logic error with loading screens from add-ons (Xbox 360)
- 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)
An official release date for Skyrim: Dawnguard on PC and PS3 is expected from Bethesda before the week is out.
