News on the new update:

The days of slowly getting off your horse to kill a wolf and then slowly climbing back on to get where you're going in Skyrim are OVER. Fans asked for it in Oblivion, but it never happened. Then we thought Skyrim's muscly chargers might be able to handle a bit of rider combat, but it hasn't happened, until now. The Bethblog mention that mounted combat has been casually added in the latest beta patch. You can opt in and try it out right now by selecting Skyrim from the beta participation list on the accounts tab in your Steam settings menu.

The patch also fixes a few glitches with the recently added ranged and magic kill cams, another feature added in a post-launch patch. We expected a bunch of post-release bug fixes, but these bonus features are a pleasant surprise. Grab a glance at the beta patch notes here.

Although I tested one of the betas on Steam during early release, I'm still waiting for the DLC and will probably check out the new patch when it's done. I like the improvements they are making. If you look at how they published DLC's for Morrowind they were major, major upgrades to the original game. It looks like that is what they are aiming at and, if so, it will be very fun to play an entire new installment. The DLCs for Oblivion and New Vegas were not well received, and it looks like they are taking pieces from that. +1 for all Skyrim gamers. Thanks, Ross.

I really appreciate you for sharing patch file and Guideline about Patch file of Skyrim game as I am looking for such kind of beta patch file for the Skyrim 1.6. game.
