Bethesda has officially released The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's 1.9 update on Steam.

The patch, previously only available in beta, adds a Legendary difficulty setting and allows players to reset level 100 skills back to level 15, which effectively removes the level cap.

Over 70 bug fixes are also detailed, including memory and stability improvements, companions automatically equipping items, and a fixed "rare instance of couriers who would appear only dressed in a hat."

"For console players out there, we’re hoping to release 1.9 later this month," said Bethesda.

Skyrim's DLC content was finally released on PlayStation 3 last month, alongside the game's 1.8 patch.
