This isn’t horse armor, it’s mounted combat for Skyrim (and free)Posted 4:47 pm on Thursday, May 24th, 2012 by Ryan Southard
Don’t worry, everyone, Bethesda isn’t selling horse armor for Skyrim (this time). No, they’re adding mounted combat for free! If you think about it, it is kind of ridiculous that you had to helplessly ride around on your horse while getting attacked by angry mobs. Well, now you can shoot arrows at those mobs! Dragons may also have a harder time of escaping your long-range horse-mounted attacks. Melee combat can also be performed while on horseback. This update should be heading to PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
The horse-mounted combat is obviously the most important piece of information, but if you’re interested in the bug-fix list, take a look at the Bethesda blog.
Check out the video below to see the mounted combat in action:
