Elder Scroll News: Skyrim 1.5 Patch Emphasizes Kill Shots; MMO Coming in May

Paul Lilly

By now you've have had plenty of time to log significant hours into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and may have even finished the main quest, but you've probably only scratched the surface of all there is to do. In case you were starting to lose motivation, Bethesda is working on a patch that, among other things, makes it much more satisfying to kill enemies.

Our sister site PC Gamer is hosting a trailer for the new patch and has the full skinny on what new features it brings to the table, including new cinematic kill cameras for projectile weapons and spells, and new kill moves and animations for melee weapons. There's also a whole bunch of bug fixes.

In other Skyrim news, Tom's Guide claims ZeniMax Online Studios and Bethesda are working an Elder Scrolls MMO. Elder Scrolls Online will debut in May of next year and take place a full millennium before Skyrim, most likely during the 'Second Era,' which is hundreds of years before any of the Elder Scrolls games.

Tom's Guide says you'll be able to choose one of three playable factions, each represented by a different animal. They include a lion, a dragon, and a bird of prey.
