The forthcoming patch 1.6 for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which supports Kinect voice-commands for Xbox 360 as well as new kill cams on all platforms and a number of other additions and requisite bug-fixes, will also be landing a new, heavily requested feature: mounted combat.

In fact, the Bethesda Blog says anyone who opted into the patch's beta on Steam can check out the new addition as of today. There's no word on whether or not mounted combat will land on consoles, but Bethesda will let us know once they've made a decision.

"Thanks again to all our fans, we remain committed to supporting the game through our free updates, mod tools, and more," the team wrote on the Blog. "And yes, we’re still working on our first add-on, Dawnguard – some great stuff to show you soon, stay tuned."

Hit the link above for a breakdown of the current additions and fixes to patch 1.6.

Seems really strange that they wouldn't save something as significant as mounted combat for the expansion.

I guess they want to show fans they will listen and love them? Not screw them over with DLC and what not.

It's because it's a game that allows modding and has a healthy modding community. You can't reserve an ability like this for an expansion since you won't have to buy the expansion to get access to it so no point in holding it back.

Sweet, even if it was a companion on the back doing the fighting it would have been nice. Jizm.

This is one reason to re review the game a year later, paging Trog.

It's been an asked for feature in ES games for a long while now, nice to see it come to fruition.

...why? the combat in ES games is so not on a level where mounted combat would be beneficial/fun/decent.
f*****g stupid idea if you ask me.
