Skyrim killcam update going live today
Bethesda releases Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 1.5 update on Xbox Live with new killcam for ranged weapons; expected to hit PlayStation 3 later today.
Console versions of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be updated to version 1.5 today, Bethesda has announced. The update--which brings a killcam for projectile weapons and spells--is now live for the Xbox 360 and is expected to arrive for the PlayStation 3 later today.
On top of the new killcam feature, the update brings new kill moves and animations for melee weapons, general crash fixes and optimizations, and an "improved" visual transition when going underwater.
For the full list of tweaks included with the update, check out Bethesda's blog. The patch hit the PC version of Skyrim in late March.
Bethesda also parsed new user statistics for Skyrim today, saying the average player (across all systems) has logged 85 hours in the game. On top of this, the company said 30 percent of gamers have played more than 100 hours.
