Finally it is coming; mounted combat! You can now fight, both melee and ranged on horseback!

Modders (and players alike) rejoice: The Navmesh bug is fixed!

The beta update is already available on Steam, so give it a go! Release date for the update is unknown. (Compatible SKSE)


Are you like me, having a hard time believing in this? Well:

I'm really surprised that they're actually adding all of these cool features instead of doing just bug fixes (which are also appreciated). Maybe now that there's going to be ranged combat I'll have a reason to buy a horse!

Though, no sign of magic on horseback, which would be cool.
