Details of the next major patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, dubbed Skyrim patch 1.5, were inadvertantly leaked on the official Bethesda website, after a post was published ahead of scheduled time.

One of the major features was the addition of a kill-cam, which will take into consideration ranged and magic attacks. It was featured in a video shown off by Todd Howard called "Skyrim Gam Jam", which comprised features that the developers didn't end up putting into the final version of Skyrim. The video was 20 minutes long and was part of Todd Howards keynote speech at DICE 2012.

This feature is definitely something that players of Call of Duty will be familiar with, but it has also been a prominent feature in the Fallout franchise, since its revival with Fallout 3.

Skyrim patch 1.4 (more recently, patch 1.4.27) has been going over smoothly, but there are clearly still bugs plaguing the game. However, the sentiment of the now deleted post was that Bethesda would be looking to start enriching the Skyrim experience with new content.

As with the previous two patches, it's expected that patch 1.5 will go through a beta phase on Steam for PC users, with a release on the PS3 and Xbox 360 following. However, since the announcement post has been removed, there's currently no word on when this patch will surface.
