In a note that could be called "terse" even for a tweet, Bethesda has informed fans of forward-facing dragons and worldwide stability that Skyrim's update version 1.3 is available on Xbox Live. Originally scheduled to hit consoles last week, 1.3 is designed to address some issues caused by the last patch, including backwards-flying dragons and "magic resistance not calculating properly." You can find the patch notes here.
Version 1.3 went out for PC on December 7. There's no word on when it will spread to the beleaguered PS3 version.
[Update: here's word! It's up right now in Europe.]
