    Beginning today, Steam users can download the beta version of Skyrim 1.9 title update – featuring Legendary new features (see below) and new bug fixes. For console players out there, we’re hoping to release 1.9 later this month — we’ll keep you updated when we have specific dates.

    With recent changes to Steam, you’ll want to take the following steps to opt into the beta.

    Within your Steam Library, right click on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
    Select Properties
    Select the Beta tab and opt in using the drop box
    If you opt into the Beta, be sure to back up your saved games or simply be careful not to overwrite your existing saves. If you decide to opt out of the beta program, your old saves will still work with the current release of Skyrim on Steam (v 1.8).

    So what’s in the update? Check the changelog below…

    Skyrim 1.9


    Legendary difficulty setting
    Legendary Skills – Skills of 100 can be made Legendary. This will reset the skill to 15, return its Perks and allow the skill to affect leveling again. This effectively removes the overall level cap.
