After successfully publishing the first DLC pack for the Xbox 360 version of Skyrim, Bethesda is hard at work pushing new updates to Skyrim through various patches and title updates. The latest update to Skyrim comes in the form of the 1.7 beta that’s currently available on Steam.

Version 1.7 doesn’t have anything game changing like in the 1.6 update that included mounted combat, but it has quite a few fixes for the Kinect support in the Xbox 360 version. Here’s the full change list:

BUG FIXES

General memory and stability optimizations
Fixed crash related to new water shaders
Fixed rare crash related to dragon landings
Fixed logic error with loading screens from add-ons (Xbox 360)
Using vampiric grip and swimming no longer prevents swimming animation from playing afterwards
Improved recognition with Kinect voice commands (Xbox 360)
Kinect-enabled dragon language shouts for French, German, Italian and Spanish work properly (Xbox 360)
Fixed issue with Dawnguard Kinect-enabled dragon shouts for French, German, Italian and Spanish (Xbox 360)
Fixed issue with Dawnguard Kinect-enabled dragon shouts for French, German, Italian and Spanish (Xbox 360)

This update could point to Dawnguard launching on PC and PS3 soon. Speaking of PS3, the features that were found in 1.6, including mounted combat, will be rolled into the 1.7 update for that platform. A lot of PS3 owners can sometimes feel like second-class citizens when it comes to Bethesda games, but at least they’re trying to make it right this time. Be thankful it’s not a repeat of the utter lack of support the PS3 version of Fallout 3 received.
