Kinect Support Coming Soon!

Xbox 360 motion control fans will be pleased to hear about Skyrim’s Kinect support launching the week of April 23rd. This title update boasts that it has 200+ voice commands. Time to brush up on your “Fus Ro Dah”.

Check out the Skyrim Kinect Integration trailer below.

Title Update 1.5

Skyrim Update 1.5 dropped earlier this month (April 5th) and fixed a number of miscellaneous problems but the most noticeable change is the added cinematic kill cameras and new animated kill moves. A full list of the exact bug fixes can be found on the Bethesda blog.

Apparently Update 1.5 can be a problem for some PS3 owners. The problem is with entering and exiting water in game causing the game to crash. Luckily there is an easy fix within the PS XMB. Go to Game>Game Data Utility and delete the game data and title updates for Skyrim. This is not your saved game! Put the game disk in and let it reinstall and update.


Unannounced DLC?


A possible DLC pack named: Dawnguard is making it's rounds on the internet. I guess people regularly monitor what trademarks are being filed. ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Games, the makers of Skyrim, filed a trademark named Dawnguard. This could be the name of the highly anticipated DLC for Skyrim or it could be anything. The above image is floating around the internet and teases toward a Nord type character involved.


EDIT: The above image is from the upcoming Bethesda game Dishonored.
