Post Skyrim Patch 1.3: Additional issues
When Bethesda released their first patch for Skyrim last week, v1.2 did solve a few known issues, but there were still a few that persisted. Thankfully the developer has just released Skyrim Patch 1.3, and there seems to be a repeat of last time, as there are additional issues. Since going live yesterday we have been hearing reports that a few new bugs have arisen.
One such issue is not being able to run while you are dual-wielding spells, but Just Push Start reports that only a small percentage of people are experiencing these issues. For the most part they suggest that the game is now running stable. Well, if they were to read what GameSpot are reporting, then they may have to take that back.
It seems after updating to patch 1.3 the game is still crashing on the PC, this does not fill us with confidence once the Xbox 360 and PS3 get the update. However, some readers have suggested that the crashing issue is due to certain PCs and not the patch, as this seems to be an isolated incident. We do find it funny how one player said that the tens of thousands of issues that were experienced with patch 1.2 was down to his computer alone – maybe there is still an issue with v1.3 after all?
Let’s try to put things into perspective, yes there have and still are a few issues with Skyrim. However, you have to remember how big of a game this is, you fix one thing and it can have an adverse effect on something else. The developer will get it right soon enough; they have even said that the framerate/lag issue will be solved with patch 1.4 for the PS3. However, we do have a few tips to help reduce this issue for now, which you can read here.
Has patch 1.3 improved things for you or created new ones?
