In preparation of tomorrow's descent of Dragonborn DLC onto PS3, a new Skyrim update is available for download today. Version 1.8 not only prepares the game for the DLC, but institutes a few general bug fixes, including a game crash when using the "vampiric grip" ability and instances where duplicate NPCs would show up in the game world.

Tomorrow kicks off a three-week release schedule for Skyrim DLC on PS3, catching up the platform first with Dragonborn, followed by Hearthfire on February 19 and Dawnguard on February 26. Since September, Sony and Bethesda have been working together to bring the tardy DLC packs to PS3.
