The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Update Version 1.16 Full Patch Notes (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

  • Bug Fixes
  • Creation Club Content added

Here is the new content that has been added to Creation Club with this update.


An exotic sword rumored to have come from Akavir. It is a singular weapon, but one that transforms with the rising or setting of the sun. Each form has its own unique enchantments, and both can be empowered by killing enough to excite the weapon. This only lasts until its next transformation, at which point the killing must begin anew.

Retrieving this weapon will require completing a small dungeon. Completing this will unlock a miscellaneous objective to uncover a second Akaviri blade in the same style, but with a separate enchantment.

Netch Leather Armors

A classic armor from Morrowind, and one with multiple variants. This includes a boiled netch leather helmet and cuirass, and a darker “shadowed” version of both the normal and boiled pieces.

Please note, the base netch leather helmet lacks a mask for male characters to avoid clipping with beards. The boiled version will fully cover the faces of all characters, regardless of race or sex.

To learn how to craft this armor you must complete a short quest, which will also reward you with a special set of painted armor. An additional quest will allow you to uncover an equally classic enchanted set of these boots.

Expanded Crossbow Pack

This pack introduces eight new crossbows: Imperial, Silver, Orcish, Nordic, Stalhrim, Glass, Daedric, and Dragonbone.

Each one can be purchased from the fletcher in Solitude. They can all be crafted after learning how to make crossbows from the Dawnguard, and you learn how to craft any one you purchase. In either case, you will also need the appropriate material perks unlocked in the smithing tree.

Alternate Armors

New versions of existing armor types, to add some variety to the game. Each one is being released individually.

Four sets of light armor: Elven Hunter, Studded Dragonscale, Dwarven Mail, and Daedric Mail

One sets of heavy armor: Stalhrim Fur

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim is out now for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Nintendo Switch.
