just announced that a new beta patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
has been released via Steam to give users an early look at the 1.4 Update currently in development. Apply the update at your own risk and only if you are affected by issues listed on this page
. Be sure to back up your saved games or simply be careful not to overwrite your existing saves. If you decide to opt out of the beta program, your old saves will still work with the current release of Skyrim (v1.3).
