The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim from Bethesda Game Studios is still receiving frequent, chunky updates across all platforms, even 1.5 years following its release. The latest update, titled Update 1.9 has been released for consoles and adds new legendary skills that “removes the overall level cap”, according to Bethesda’s blog.
Players can now change their skill set to legendary, which resets the respective skill to level 15. This additionally returns its associated perks and allows for re-leveling. This is what is implied by the “overall level cap” removal. Additionally, a plain-and-simple legendary difficulty setting has been added to increase the game’s overall challenge if you enjoy ripping your own hair out.
As is typical with game updates, Update 1.9 squashes a good number of bugs, including those that made NPCs respawn improperly or made dragon NPC Alduin go invincible. No, that’s not a feature on legendary difficulty – or at least, it had better not be.
