Since its release Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been pretty well received by many gamers, who have a game that will last them for a long time. The latest patch for the title was recently released with many owners of the PS3 hoping it would finally fix the sometimes crippling lag problem. Bethesda has now offered some advice on how to properly apply the Skyrim patch 1.4 after downloading it.
There are many owners that have found the latest Skyrim patch has finally sorted the serious lag issue on the console, but unfortunately there are still some that are still having difficulties. Now according to an article over at VG24/7 developer Bethesda has taken to the official forums offering some further advice to PS3 owners to try and fix any remaining problems.
They have said that the patch includes a number of performance improvements for the game on the PS3, but point out a few important things to be aware of. To start with owners are advised that after downloading the patch they should create a new manual save, before restarting the console and continuing to play.
The advice then goes on to state that if users notice any strange actions after applying the patch that it is only the Skyrim scripts correcting themselves, and will only be temporary. Once the correction has been completed a new save is needed ahead of a restart of the system.
Owners are then advised that if this still doesn’t help they should comment about it on the forums or other channels as Bethesda keeps an eye on these for feedback. Hopefully this will help matters as some users are getting excited about future DLC releases for the game. Recently we had some nice Skyrim DLC concept ideas for you to look at that could make the game even better. Below is a video of the patch working for one PS3 owner.
