The Bethesda blog has been updated with news of a new mounted combat feature that will be included with the Skyrim version 1.6 update. Interested players can try it out now by downloading the latest Steam Beta update. Be sure to back up your game saves before downloading the beta though.
“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!”
