For all the critical acclaim The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has gathered, Bethesda is still, unfortunately, trying to exterminate all the bugs that have been causing problems for gamers.
Bethesda announced today that the version 1.3 patch is now available for Xbox 360 users and is due later for the PlayStation 3. It’s primarily designed to fix the bugs caused by the version 1.2 patch from earlier this December, because as it turns out, dragons don’t have a reverse gear and frost atronachs can’t freeze to death.
The 1.3 patch for the PC was released last week, and all indications are that it worked to full effect. Hopefully 360, and later, PS3 owners, can now get back to plunging 10 hours a day into the game without any unnecessary distractions.
Here are the full patch notes from Bethesda’s announcement:
- General stability improvements
- Optimize performance for Core 2 Duo CPUs (PC)
- Fixed Radiant Story incorrectly filling certain roles
- Fixed magic resistances not calculating properly
- Fixed issue with placing books on bookshelves inside player purchased homes
- Fixed dragon animation issues with saving and loading
- Fixed Y-look input to scale correctly with framerate
