Skyrim update patch imminent for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC

By Gary Johnson - Nov 16, 2011

Late last week saw the launch of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and has been well received by most people who have played the game. There have been a few little niggles though just like most new games suffer from just after release. Many owners of the game on the Xbox 360 have complained about graphic textures, with a lot of disappointment from some users. Today we can tell you that a Skyrim patch update is imminent for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

A few days ago we told you that Bethesda were aware of the problems with the game and were looking into providing a fix. Now according to an article over at patches are coming to fix the reported bugs in the game, and Bethesda has said that issues will be addressed for all systems with work already underway.

Pete Hines Bethesda’s VP of PR Marketing has recently taken to Twitter talking about the updates and said “We are continuing to work on an update for all platforms to address any bugs and [performance] issues we can”. This came after fans of the game were raising concerns and were also becoming impatient over the updates.

In response to on user on the site Hines tweeted “Patches/updates take a little time. We can’t turn it around quite that fast. It’s been three days. Calm down. We’re working on it.” Currently there is no time frame for the release of the patches with Hines saying the company is not going to give release dates for now.

It is thought though that these should be with gamers shortly, and is one reason why sometimes it can pay to get a new game a few weeks after it is first launched. But suffering a few little niggles can be a small price to pay to have a game from day one.

    I’m playing on PS3 and my game size is over 6MB. So far, I’ve not hit the dreaded framerate/hanging issue. It’s not good to hear this problem exists as this same problem made Fallout GOTY edition unplayable eventually. I have turned off the saving on character menu option, perhaps this helps.

    Still, so far, the only bugs I have seen are one crash during loading, one dragon missing it’s textures up-close and one waterfall doing soming graphically strange.

    This game is truly amazing. It’s stunning. Congratulations, Bethesda, I’m sure you’ll fix these issues soon…

    I didn’t experience any bugs yet. Yhe only thing I want is an update optimizing the game for PC. It’s completely stupid to have a game only using 2 CPU cores when there are already 8 cores on the market. This “new” engine of theirs is a total load of crap.
