Skyrim 1.7 patch hitch adds to PS3 Dawnguard misery

The wait for the highly anticipated Skyrim 1.7 patch will come to an end this week, on Xbox 360 and for select PS3 users. We’ve heard that Bethesda are planning to drop the update later this week, but bizarrely, PS3 users in Europe are being made to wait for yet another week.

As we told you in a previous article here, the Skyrim 1.7 patch is already live on PC and by the looks of things, missed out on a few requested fixes that didn’t come. To give you a little reminder of what is coming, expect to see a fix to water shading crashes, fixes for dragon landing crashes and some general stability improvements.

There’s also a few Xbox 360 specific fixes coming in patch 1.7 and that includes using dragon shouts when playing the game with Kinect support. Bethesda’s Pete Hines made the announcement on Twitter that the 1.7 patch would be hitting Xbox 360 and PS3 users on Thursday.

In a twist though it is only going to be out for US PS3 owners, leaving European owners in the dark with no further explanation. This is obviously going to be seen as another kick in the teeth for European Skyrim players who have not only been waiting for this patch to land, but also the delayed Dawnguard DLC expansion as well.

If you live in the US, you are not going to be affected by this – you’ll still enjoy the 1.7 update this Thursday. For our EU readers though, are you frustrated by this latest disappointment? Hopefully Bethesda will offer an explanation soon, just like they did with the Dawnguard wait on PS3.
