Most patches for video games fix bugs and technical issues, but the newest patch for The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is doing a little more than that.
Aside from fixing various issues, the latest patch for Skyrim adds new kill cams to the game. For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, kill cams are special cinematic kills that the player’s character may perform in the game. The patch includes kill cams for spells and projectile weapons (which did not have kill cams before the patch) and new kill cams for melee weapons.
