The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim v1.7 Beta Patch Released

23 Jul 2012

Bethesda continues their, so far successful, tradition of releasing beta patches on Steam before releasing the full patch on all platforms with patch v1.7, which might not add new features like mounted combat, but seems to fix a few issues with the title and its DLC Dawnguard. We're also informed that the bugfixes and new features of patch v1.6 will be rolled into v1.7 for PS3 users.

Here's the full changelog (for all three platforms):
