Bethesda Promises Patch for PS3 Skyrim Next Week

November 22, 2011 -

Bethesda announced that it is hard at work fixing bugs and glitches associated with various versions of its epic RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. After pages of forum posts and an avalanche of consumer complaints, Bethesda will attempt to fix the issues plaguing PlayStation 3 Skyrim players with a new patch next week - after the Thanksgiving holiday.

"PS3 and 360 updates have been submitted for certification. PC coming too. Current estimate is they will be live the week after Thanksgiving," said Bethesda's Pete Hines.

"On the list for this update is improved performance for long-term play on PS3."

A large number of PlayStation 3 players have been plagued by a glitch with save files. After playing a few hours those files get bigger and - once they hit the nine MB mark - the game begins to become laggy. As the player attempts to soldier on in this lag, the game performance gets worse, eventually making it unplayable. Xbox 360 users have also reported texture issues and PC owners are dealing with fair share of glitches and technical quirks, but Bethesda has not confirmed a patch to fix these issues on other platforms.

Given that there are 3.5 million copies of the game on various platforms in the hands of players - with another 3.5 or so copies in retail stores - there's no doubt that Bethesda wants to get an outstanding technical issues squashed so they can concentrate on releasing DLC.

You can reapply the large address aware fix via the code injection method up on skyrimnexus.  It's the same thing that was done for FO:NV (same author) and works perfectly.  Look for FAA fix.

I hope for the console people's sake it's more helpful that today's PC patch.  All the PC patch did was ruin one of the fixes users have come up with to keep Skyrim from crashing so often.

360 user.  Can't say I've really had any unusual problems with the game.  Just the occasional freezing when loading a new area, but that's been a problem in every Bethesda large world game I've played (Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3).  And that doesn't happen frequently enough to make me mad.  It happens after a few hours of playing.  It's the game telling me to take a break :)  As far as texture issues, I have 25 hrs logged so far and have only had 2 textures on some dragons not appear properly, but definitely not game breaking.

Sounds like PS3 users have it bad though with the lag issues.

The bigger the game the longer the beta stage, I'll wait for the whole game to be released in a super mega game of the year package.

Andrew EisenTrue, but I liked the fact that rather than do a crappy looking version of the PS3/360 version, it went with an art style more suited to the Wii's strengths.11/23/2014 - 12:26am
Wonderkarpif I had the money, I'd buy one of those expensive proton pack replicas11/22/2014 - 11:25pm
Wonderkarpthats the wii version though. the PS3/360 version is far superior.11/22/2014 - 11:19pm
Andrew EisenOdd that there was no hose connecting the thrower to the backpack. Was there just no more horsepower left in the Wii to animate it? And did seriously no one on the dev or QA team notice the Ghostbusters patch on the player's sleeve was backwards?11/22/2014 - 11:17pm
Andrew EisenI played it one the Wii and rather liked it.11/22/2014 - 11:15pm
