Not that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is lacking in its visual appeal, but for those looking to add a little bit more realism to their game, a new HD Texture Pack update has been released through Steam.
To install the update, your PC has to meet or exceed the recommended requirements for the main game.
- OS: Windows Vista/7
- Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU
- Memory: a minimum of 4GB of system RAM
- Graphics: DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with at least 1 GB of RAM and the latest drivers (Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or higher; ATI Radeon 4890 or higher)
The download is approximately 4.7 GB in size and is completely free! Yes, that’s right. I went to the Steam website and checked it out for myself and according to their site, players can download this HD Texture Pack for free.
Sorry Xbox & PS3 gamers (myself included as I have Skyrim for the Xbox 360), but that’s the disadvantage of not playing games on the PC; you miss out on a lot of cool extras like new & improved texture packs and additional quests and other elements contributed by game modders.
