Skyrim Patch 1.9 is now live on Steam.
Skyrim Patch 1.9 which grants the legendary difficulty to grizzled Dragonborn veterans, has gone live on Steam.
Previously, the patch had only been available to those who opted into beta updates for the game.
The new patch, besides fixing a slew of bugs, also allows players to make skills that were maxed out at 100 legendary. The skill tree would essentially be "reset", and players could then re-level through a tree to gain perks and break through the level cap. The Legendary difficulty is analogous to Call of Duty's prestige mode, if you will.
Console players are going to have to wait just a little bit longer for the update. "For console players out there, we’re hoping to release 1.9 later this month," said Bethesda.
