Bethesda prepping all-platforms Skyrim patch

Tuesday, 15 November 2011 21:52 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Expect some of your favourite The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim exploits to be rectified shortly.

“We are continuing to work on an update for all platforms to address issues any bugs and [performance] issues we can,” Bethesda PR boss Pete Hines tweeted.

“We will fix as much as we can for your platform. I don’t know if it will fix ‘your’ bug. Takes a while to test/fix/regress. Hang in there,” he added, and in response to one particularly vocal fan:

“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.”

In the meantime, Hines requests players communicate feedback and report bugs directly with Bethesda support using this form.

Skyrim released last week on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and has pretty much consumed everyone’s life since then. Glitch videos have become a YouTube staple, and “horse physics” is well on its way to meme status. All part of the charm of massive open worlds – at least, during launch week.

Thanks, IGN.
