    Well that post was barebones...Maybe mention turning on the Skyrim beta in the settings part of Steam?

    PC Gamers looking to get a hold of Skyrim's 1.4 update can get it earlier than expected. By enabling Steam's beta access you can download the 1.4 update right now in fact.

    Select Settings
    Under the Account tab, go to the Beta Participation section and select Change.
    A drop down menu will appear. Select Skyrim Beta.
    Select OK.
    Steam will now restart. After Steam restarts, Skyrim will be updated to the Beta version currently available.

    You're version of Skyrim should then proceed to download the 1.4 update.

      Hey look, you wrote a better article than Luke Plunkett!

        Spelling is off, cause I didn't proof read :D

          I like this rewrite. More please on future one-liner articles

          Akra, that is better written than 99% of Lukes articles, please comment on his articles from now on, because you did a much MUCH better job than he does, and you're doing it for free while he slacks off for money.

      How dare you show how much they're coasting by with singular sentence posts! Fo' shame.

      thank u ,, clear instructions and honest intelligent opinions ,,,, for once

    Lol Luke would it have hurt to add a couple of extra sentences and not seem like a complete unprofessional?

    I just wanted to add that 1.4 renders SkyBoost and TESV Accelerator obsolete (, while also improving on their performance-increasing effects. So kudos to Bethesda for sorting that out.

    Finally the Creation Kit.
    Hopefully some good mods will get me interested in Skyrim again.

    Skyrim 1.4 early. steam beta go!

    Is this the patch that fixes all of Skyrims bugs and balances the skills so one can play however they want without becoming an over-powered god?

    Get a BETA Bethesda patch? I think not! There are more than enough bugs in their release patches.
