Continuing with the post-release support, Bethesda has announced a new patch for their latest addition to the Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim. Among the usual bug fixes are some new additions, including kill cameras for ranged and magic attacks as well as new melee kill moves.
From the memes to the mods to the amazing stories that continue to be told, we’ve been blown away by the continued community support for Skyrim. All of it has driven us to make the game even better, and we’re excited to start sharing news on upcoming features and content.
It all starts with our upcoming 1.5 title update – available now as a Beta Update on Steam and arriving soon for Xbox 360 and PS3. In the release notes below, you’ll notice we’ve not only made fixes to the game, but also introduced some new features. One of our favorite additions are the new kill cameras for ranged and magic attacks. Watch the video above for a sneak peek.
If you've been keeping a close eye on Skyrim in the past few months, you will have noticed these new additions are oddly familar, due in part to being featured as a concept in the Game Jam sizzle shown during Todd Howard's DICE Keynote.
Check out the trailer below which showcases the kill cameras and new melee kills, which will definitely make the game a lot more cooler when you can see that arrow to the knee (sorry, I couldn't resist). If your interested in checking out the 1.5 patch early, it's currently available as a beta update on Steam, which you can find instructions for over here, as well as the full patch notes.
