If you've spotted a new update to Skyrim on your PlayStation 4, then it'll be the game's virtual reality version getting a belated bit of visual polish.

Skyrim for PlayStation VR's new patch - numbered 1.4.40.0.8 - is the first to arrive since January. It adds "a new main menu experience" and "globally improved visual fidelity, especially on PS4 Pro".

If you're playing using PlayStation Move controllers, you'll note a few new options for your suggestively-shaped wands. Notably, you'll be able to shuffle backwards using the secondary X button, and the ability (now enabled by default) to "show hands when sheathed". Blimey.

Other tweaks include an "adjusted angle for spell targeting to be more comfortable", "realistic bow aiming" using a PS Move controller in each fist, and more. The full patch notes are over on Bethesda's forum.

Skyrim VR is also available for PC via Steam. Or you can get the full game to play on the go via Nintendo Switch, not get headaches and dress up as Link.
