The Elder Scrolls V: Skryim 1.6 Update to Feature Mounted Combat
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion first introduced gamers to horses in the land of Tamriel, however they were a means of transportation only and in order to engage in combat, one had to dismount first. Horses returned in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, yet once again you could only ride them and not fight from horseback.
Well, with the upcoming 1.6 Update, that's all going to change; mounted combat is finally coming to The Elder Scrolls.
There's no release date for the patch just yet, but you can read all about it, including the list of usual bug fixes, right here.
And yes, mounted combat will be free and not premium DLC.
