Skyrim Update 1.7 now available on Steam; Dawnguard news coming ‘soon’

Good news for PC gamers as Skyrim’s latest update, 1.7, is now available for all players. Bethesda did not reveal any changelog for it, so we can assume that it’s the same with one of its beta version. In addition, the patch will be submitted to consoles this week, meaning that X360 and PS3 gamers might get it in the coming days.
In other news, Bethesda’s Pete Hines revealed that there will be some news about the PC and PS3 versions of Dawnguard and that they had never announced a release date for them. Don’t hold your breath though as the company might not reveal its plans this week.
When a fan asked if Dawnguard PS3 and PC were cancelled, Pete responded and said that we’ll be getting more news about them soon:
“Just sit tight. We’ll have info soon.”
Here is the changelog of Skyrim’s Update 1.7:
