Skyrim 1.3 Patch Released On Steam, Coming Soon To PS3 And Xbox 360

We all remember the fun that was had when Bethesda rolled out their last update for Skyrim. The biggest being that many dragons decided that flying forward was no longer something that they wished to do. It also broke resistances, which itself was a game breaker. Well the company has just issued Update 1.3, and it should take care of that, and other issues. Here are the full update notes, which apply to all platforms, unless specified:

  • 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

We’re not quite sure what “general stability improvements” means, but we’re happy to see that the dragon animations and resistances are fixed. We’re also interested to see just how much better older Core 2 Duo machines perform after the new patch.

One last bit of good news for the PC gamers is that Bethesda is working on allowing you to use up to 4GB of memory for the game. This is great, as the limitation of 2GB just doesn’t cut it for some machines. The company plans on having that ready for PC users next week. As for the 1.3 patch, it is currently live on Steam, and has been submitted to Microsoft and Sony for their respective consoles. We’ll keep you updated on when the patch will go live on those platforms.
