Lucky fans began receiving emails tonight from “The Elder Scrolls”, and we’ll be done completing the deployment tomorrow. Within the email, users will receive an Xbox LIVE redemption code, as well as details on how to participate in our private feedback forum.
Thanks in advance for your comments and feedback. And for those that didn’t get in, we plan on doing this again.
Beginning on Friday, the 1.6 update for Skyrim became available on Xbox LIVE for English territories. The update adds Mounted Combat, new bug fixes, and support for Skyrim’s upcoming game add-on, Dawnguard.
Once we have details on when the update will be available in other territories, we’ll share more information. Likewise, we’ll be sending out our Skyrim beta details to applicants early this week.
We will be selecting applicants in about a week. Players accepted into the beta will receive an Xbox LIVE code to redeem Dawnguard. The beta is the full version (complete with Xbox LIVE achievements) and those participating will not have to purchase the content.
Thanks again for your continued support of Skyrim!
Will you be in LA next week? If so, we encourage you to check out Video Games Live on June 6th at the Nokia Theatre. During the concert, music from Skyrim will be performed by a 110-piece symphony & choir.
If you’ve never seen Video Games Live before, it’s definitely worth checking out. Created by Tommy Tallarico in 2002, its an immersive audio and video concert experience celebrating videogames.
The team at Bethesda Game Studios is excited to announce another new feature making its way into Skyrim… Mounted Combat! Like the recently added Kinect support (360) and new kill cameras, this highly-requested feature that was seen in the Skyrim Game Jam video is arriving for free. In fact, by opting into the latest Steam Beta Update, PC users can check out the feature today. As far as release on other platforms, we’ll let you know when we have more information.
Thanks again to all our fans, we remain committed to supporting the game through our free updates, mod tools, and more. And yes, we’re still working on our first add-on, Dawnguard – some great stuff to show you soon, stay tuned!
