The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim title update 1.7 is coming to consoles this week
Rejoice, readers of GameDynamo, for I have big Skyrim news, especially for the PlayStation crowd.
Yesterday, a new message appeared on The Elder Scrolls' official Twitter account, revealing the launch dates for the latest update for Skyrim, update 1.7. According to the tweet, the update will be released this Thursday, August 9 for Xbox 360 gamers worldwide and PlayStation 3 users in North America. European PS3 owners will have to wait until next week.
The fact that it is even coming to the PS3 at all is cause for joy. For a while now, Bethesda Softworks has been dropping bummer news onto the Sony crowd. Case in point, the recently-released Dawnguard DLC, which, while released on other platforms, shows no sign of appearing on the PS3. Not to mention, the greater number of performance issues that have pestered Skyrim on the PlayStation, compared to other versions.
Another example of PS3 neglect in recent months was the omission of update 1.6 from that version of Skyrim. That wrong will be righted, however, as the content of 1.6 will be folded into the PS3 version of 1.7. This means that PlayStation players should finally get mounted combat and the number of fixes that were included in 1.6.
