We finally have some good news for Xbox 360 and PS3 owners now, as Bethesda has just unleashed the highly anticipated 1.9 update on console. Previously, the update has been available on PC – adding numerous bug fixes as well as the new Legendary features and skills to the game as well.
It’s another case of better late than never though as far as Bethesda are concerned, and there’s a little twist as well to tell you about for the specific update on 1.9. Bethesda has revealed on their blog that the update is available as an automatic title update download simply by turning your respective console on with an active internet connection.
For those that haven’t read up on the 1.9 update when it landed on PC, we can tell you that the new 1.9 title update will add the Legendary difficulty setting to the game. You’ll now be able to reset skills as well with the new Legendary features, allowing you to wipe out level 100 skills, return them to level 15 but can no longer be subjected to a level cap.
That means you can keep earning experience points on your skills as you progress through the game – a move that players will ultimately appreciate once they have learned how it works. Long with the Legendary features, there is also a vast list of new bug fixes to read through, which you’ll be able to do through the Beth blog.
Some of the changes include a fix which caused Alduin to become invincible during “Alduin’s Bane”, crashes when entering the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary and an overall improvement to general memory and stability of the game. Console players should now be able to play a much smoother Skyrim and it should keep Xbox 360 and PS3 users busy until the Skyrim DLC 4 content arrives – will it be Summerset or not?
Let us know if you have already installed the Skyrim 1.9 update and how your game is playing at the moment after the patch.
