The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Patch 1.7 is Now Available on Steam

That bear is packing some serious heat.

On Monday the latest beta update for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released over on Steam. The beta patch is for the upcoming 1.7 title update. Which is available for people to beta test on Steam with a full release coming later for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Currently this patch just seems to be a bug fixing one.

PlayStation 3 players will get the stuff from the 1.6 patch such as Mounted Combat included in the 1.7 patch.
