Thursday, 24th May 2012 21:20 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Bethesda has announced mounted combat for Skyrim via a free title update. Those who have the game on Steam should make sure the beta version is up to date and try it out. No date just yet, but it will land on consoles as well. Patch notes can be found on the Bethesda Blog. There’s also a video of it in action below, courtesy of RipTen.

    Awesome, started a new character a few weeks ago, should be a very different feel to the game!

    (plus loaded up on some mods :P)

    It’s very awesome. I am really tempted to get this on PC. I already have on it 360, but the damn thing only runs when it feels like it.

    @3: Wow, i don’t even want to imagine all the mods you’re missing out on.

    @4 Exactly. But previous TES games have taught me that I need a comfortable couch in order to play the games for the long stretches that I do. Plus the fact, that after I get off work, I am loathe to plop back down in front of a computer.

    Skyrim is really kind of dull. The most fun I’ve had in Skyrim are frankly the Moonpaths mod, and the Roofjumper’s Treasure mod.

    What’s funny is that the Moonpaths mod is so, so much more beautiful and graphically impressive than Skyrim itself.

    Hook your PC up to a telly. PCS CAN DO THAT!

    @7: Haven’t tried out the Moonpaths Mod yet. Was afraid it was a little bit unstable, is it that good? I usually download armor, weapons, textures and some graphical mods.

    I mean just look at my character:

    Bokeh effect, warmer colors, darker areas, warpaint by yours-truly, armor from Iorveth (Witcher 2), cleaner skin, etc.

    Downloaded Sexy Solitude and Riften yesterday, just makes the whole game so much more enjoyable.

    So will this come to 360 as well or not at all?

    @11 It says it’s coming to consoles in the post.

    Lol yeah, i must have read past that and didn’t see it. I hope we won’t have to wait too long. But kudos to Bethesda for releasing these cool things like magic kill cams and this, and for free.
