The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a phenomenal game, but like any Bethesda RPG it has its share of issues. Bethesda have been working on a patch, ever since the game hit retail and according to their blog that patch is now available to PS3 owners. Xbox360 and PC users will get it tomorrow. Here’s a list of issues this patch addresses:

Stay in Skyrim forever

Stay in Skyrim forever

  • 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)

While this is nice and all, I really hope Bethesda release a high-res texture patch for the PC ASAP.
