Earlier today, Bethesda's Community Manager Nick Breckton revealed that there will be a day one patch for Skyrim when it is released this Friday. Apparently, the actual patch for Skyrim on consoles went live today for those who already own the game.
We assumed that the patch wouldn't be a major and most likely fix minor bugs that managed to slip by onto the release version of the game. As it turns out, Bethesda actually revealed the details of the 1.1 patch today and confirmed the patch fixes "some minor stability" and "quest progression issues." For those who are picking up Skyrim Friday, you can expect to download the patch immediately to your console.
The patch will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
