Skyrim Dawnguard bugs not evident, yet
With less than a day to go until the download for Skyrim Dawnguard goes live, we’re pleased to know that during the beta period for Xbox 360 users they haven’t found any bugs yet. If any had been evident then tomorrow’s release of the first DLC for Skyrim would not have gone ahead. However, that’s not saying that once the new content is made available to the masses problems will not arise, but if there are then these will be patched in time for PC and PS3 users can get their hands on it.
When Bethesda released Skyrim at the end of last year the game suffered from a huge number of glitches, with the PlayStation 3 being the worst. It’s obvious that each platform fan will give you something different but for the most part the Xbox 360 was considered more stable. The reason for this is because most of the work for The Elder Scrolls V was done on the 360, which means that many of the early bugs were patched ahead of release.
There was always the assumption that the PC version was the most stable, but this was not the case. There were several texture issues but thanks to modding these issues were resolved pretty quickly. Fans of Skyrim have wondered what has taken the developer so long to bring out the first DLC for Skyrim and most gamers believe that it was the constant issues with the PS3 version that took Bethesda’s focus – let’s hope this doesn’t happen again.
There’s a fear that once the PS3 version of Dawnguard is released next month we will begin to see bugs appear once more – if they ever went away that is. If Dawnguard does release with little or no bugs do you feel this will be the same story once the PC and PlayStation versions are released?
