Bethesda Announced yesterday on their Twitter feed that that the 1.7 update for Skyrim releases sometime today on Xbox 360 and Ps3. The Xbox version of the patch is nothing special – a few memory optimizations and Dawnguard bug fixes. For Ps3 users, however, the patch also includes the 1.6 update. This means that PS3 users now have access to the long awaited mounted combat feature.
The release of 1.7 on PS3 also means something much more for PS3 users – Dawnguard is near. The update adds an “Add ons” option in the main menu, as well as preparing the game in general for the DLC. Although the last update on the DLC release date for PS3 said that “We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3″, it’s still a relief to see that Bethesda is preparing the console for Dawnguard’s release (which will hopefully be in the coming weeks.
However, European PS3 users have to wait another week for the new patch. With Bethesda giving no explanation, fans in Europe are left wondering why they’ve been deprived of the update. With hype for the DLC on PS3 already dwindling rapidly, yet more time for fans to wait is doing nothing but hindering Bethesda’s popularity.
If you’re a European PS3 user, are you starting to lose faith in ever seeing Dawnguard? Let out your anger below in the comments section.
