Skyrim Graphics Fix Coming Soon For Xbox360

In my past article I told Xbox360 users to install game data from Battlefield 3 onto their hard drives in order to “unlock” the high resolution graphics that accompany the game. If you didn’t install the data, you’d still be able to play but the game would look much less pleasing. This article is the complete opposite. If you own an Xbox360 and also own Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you should hold out on installing the data on your hard drive for now.

The reason for this is because of a launch-day glitch which messes with the textures of the game. If you install the game onto your hard drive, some of the textures will have trouble loading and you’ll see a bunch of low resolution textures. Representatives from Bethesda have released the following reason: “the issue revolves around the game’s ‘heavy use’ of the system’s cache and that when playing off the hard drive, high-quality textures fail to load on occasion.”

If you are one who owns and Xbox and wants to play Skyrim, simply choose ‘no’ when asked to install the game data onto the hard drive. Bethesda says they are currently working on (or have already finished) a patch that will accompany the game’s first title update. There is no release date for this patch.
