Someone at Bethesda has been listening a whole lot lately, as after we received the Kinect add-on with Xbox 360, we now see another feature from the Skyrim Game Jam make its way to a copy of the game.
Friend of the site, Dave Oshry demonstrates mounted combat, and his impeccable video editing skills;
Starting in beta today and available to all Steam users if they so choose to try it out in beta form, you’ll be able to take out foes without even getting off your horse (which I will assume is Shadowmere because it is superior to all horses in Skyrim for obvious reasons… red eyes). The natural conclusion is that melee is allowed on horseback but you’ll also be allowed to pick off enemies with ranged attacks. You’ve just become the most dangerous piece of cavalry Skyrim will ever see.
To be the hell on wheels (hoofs?) you’ve always dreamed of, you’ll have to get the 1.6 update first. You can wait until its official release or follow the instructions on the Bethesda blog post regarding the new additions.
