Now on Steam: Skyrim 1.9 (Update)

Update (3/18): Beginning today, Steam users can download the Skyrim 1.9 title update – featuring Legendary new features (see below) and new bug fixes. For console players out there, we’re hoping to release 1.9 later this month — we’ll keep you updated when we have specific dates.

So what’s in the update? Check the changelog below…

Skyrim 1.9 

NEW FEATURES

  • Legendary difficulty setting
  • Legendary Skills – Skills of 100 can be made Legendary. This will reset the skill to 15, return its Perks and allow the skill to affect leveling again. This effectively removes the overall level cap.

Bug fixes after the break…

Now Available on PSN: Dawnguard

Update: Dawnguard is now available on the North American and Europe PlayStation Stores. Download here.

Vampire Lord or Vampire Hunter? North American PlayStation 3 players will make the ultimate choice, Dawnguard is now available on PSN. And like our PS3 releases for Dragonborn and Hearthfire, the content will be 50% off ($9.99) for the first week of release.

Other important PlayStation Store updates to note this week:

  • Also arriving today, French versions of Dragonborn, Hearthfire, and Dawnguard will be released for Canada, as well as Spanish versions in Latin American markets.
  • Tomorrow afternoon, the French, Italian, German, and Spanish markets will get the three remaining add-ons in their respective languages, as well as English.
