Skyrim’s Latest 1.2 Patch Is Live For PS3, PC and 360 Have To Wait

The patch that was talked about last week for Skyrim is now live, though only on one platform. The PS3 version of the update has now rolled out, though players on the PC and Xbox 360 will have to wait. The full patch for those systems should be out for players on November 30th. After looking over the list of fixes, it makes some sense why the PS3 saw the update first as it fixes a lot of the game-breaking problems that many players were complaining about.

Here’s a list of fixes that are included in the new update:

  • Improved occasional performance issues resulting from long term play (PlayStation 3)
  • Fixed issue where textures would not properly upgrade when installed to drive (Xbox 360)
  • Fixed crash on startup when audio is set to sample rate other than 44100Hz (PC)
  • Fixed issue where projectiles did not properly fade away
  • Fixed occasional issue where a guest would arrive to the player’s wedding dead
  • Dragon corpses now clean up properly
  • Fixed rare issue where dragons would not attack
  • Fixed rare NPC sleeping animation bug
  • Fixed rare issue with dead corpses being cleared up prematurely
  • Skeleton Key will now work properly if player has no lockpicks in their inventory
  • Fixed rare issue with renaming enchanted weapons and armor
  • Fixed rare issue with dragons not properly giving souls after death
  • ESC button can now be used to exit menus (PC)
  • Fixed occasional mouse sensitivity issues (PC)
  • General functionality fixes related to remapping buttons and controls (PC)

The developer says they will continue to monitor the forums and blogs for any further issues that the community sees. The fix list addresses a lot of player issues, especially when it comes to graphics. Some players are still having some issues with textures and glitching walls that disappear, and I assume those issues have been cleaned up as well. Keep patient until Wednesday if you own the game on Xbox 360 or the PC, and enjoy the patch if you’re on the PS3.
