Bethesda Releases High Resolution Textures Update for Skyrim DLC

Posted on February 7, 2013 AT 03:52am

Dragonborn is now live for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on PC and to accompany it Bethesda has released an update for its HD Texture Pack.

The original HD upgrade was an optional download for PC players who wanted a little extra polish at the expense of some performance, but now Bethesda has updated it to include HD textures for all three of the game’s DLC packs–Hearthfire, Dawnguard, and Dragonborn.

“Before you download, make sure your PC has the horsepower to support it,” the developer warns. “Make sure your system requirements exceed Skyrim‘s recommended specs before attempting to install, and that your PC has Windows Vista/7, a minimum of 4GB of system RAM, and a DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with at least 1 GB of RAM and the latest drivers.”

If you already have the pack installed then your game will automatically download a 1.5GB update when you next log in to Steam.
