Skyrim 1.3 Patch Now Available for PC Via Steam


The anticipated update 1.3 for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrimis now available for PC users on Steam.  The patch has been submitted to Sony and Microsoft, and pending approval, should be released sometime later this week.

Basically, the patch fixes what 1.2 broke.  Bethesda has said they plan on releasing "regular updates for the game through full title updates, as well as "incremental gameplay updates" to fix whatever issues come up along with rebalancing portions of the game for difficulty or exploits."

As promised, patch notes for the 1.3 update were released.  Taken directly from the Bethesda forums, the following notes are for all platforms, unless specified.l

  • 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

In addition to this week's plan, Bethesda is also planning on "rolling out support for 4-Gigabyte Tuning (Large Address Aware) next week for PC users.

Unfortunately, the lag issues which still remain on certain PS3 users have no been fixed with this patch, but are being addressed.  Bethesda has issued a statement updating PS3 users on the long-term play issues.

"Right now we know it’s not one thing, but a combination of smaller ones that some folks are seeing, but others are not. Some seem to be the PS3 autosaving in the background (you can turn that off), some may be SPU AI updates, and some may relate to dynamic system memory allocation," explained Bethesda.

As of right now, no issues with the Skyrim 1.3 patch on Steam have been reported.  Have you updated your game to 1.3 yet?
