Download Skyrim patch 1.6 live, not PS3 and PC
The download for Skyrim patch 1.6 is finally live for Xbox users and those with a PS3 and PC still have to play the waiting game for now – we just don’t know how long. While the patch resolves a number of bug issues the biggest draw for this update is the Mounted Combat, which fans have been waiting for since The Elder Scrolls V was released.
With Mounted Combat (a great addition for free) players will now be able to take out their foe on horseback with melee attacks or ranged combat, and while this is only something small it adds a whole different dynamic to the game. How useless was it to have to jump off your horse in order to do some fighting, as well as the fact having to get off your steed some distance back in order for the animal not to get hurt.
For some gamers they much prefer patch 1.6 because of those various fixes, as they have still been dogged by issues. Looking at the latest Skyrim patch notes it’s clear to see that this will become a more stable game, but we’re still hearing of a number of issues after downloading this update.
We have had a few emails from some of our readers saying that after downloading patch 1.6 for Skyrim they were unable to load any of their saved games. After uninstalling and then reinstalling they have still suffered from the same issue. There’s also another issue, if you pick up an item it just hangs upside down, which stops you from placing it anywhere. From what we can make out these are just isolated issues, but what other problems have you experienced since updating to patch 1.6?
