Skyrim PC update improves textures for Dawnguard, Hearthfire & Dragonborn

DLC packs get improved HD Texture Pack in free update

Bethesda has released free update to for the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim HD Texture Pack on PC via Steam.


The update adds improved textures for Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and the newly-released Dragonborn DLC expansions.

The update weighs in at 4.7GB, and while it's free to all who own the PC version of the game, Bethesda warns that it should only be downloaded by those whose PC "has the horsepower to support it".

"Make sure your system requirements exceed Skyrim's recommended specs before attempting to install, and that your PC has Windows Vista/7, a minimum of 4GB of system RAM, and a DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with at least 1 GB of RAM and the latest drivers," warns the developer.

Previously released on Xbox 360 and finally due to launch on PS3 later this month, the Dragonborn DLC introduces dragon mounting and features a return to Solstheim, the setting for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind's Bloodmoon expansion.
