This. Is. Monumental.
At least for the many (millions?) that enjoy The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Steam. Mounted combat is now possible on horses (obviously including your preferred bows, swords, and so on) by jumping into the Beta Participation section on Steam’s settings menu and selecting the game. On top of this very prominent feature, a few glitches were fixed with the recently added ranged and magic kill cams, another feature added in a post-launch patch that makes Skyrim an even more well-rounded and artistic game than before. Jump past the break to see the full changelog for the Skyrim 1.6 Beta.
