The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition has received a new Patch 1.2 which promises to fix issues introduced by the earlier broken update.
Something must have gone wrong at the quality testing department of Bethesda Softworks. Patch 1.1 was a complete mess and brought major issues for a majority of players, making the game pretty much playable.
Skyrim Special Edition was crashing randomly and frequently. If the game didn’t die on you while you were playing, it would if you used alt-tab to switch to your desktop. Additionally, transforming from werewolf to human would for some reason cause another game-crash. There were a couple of other incidents as well, but they all have been promised to be fixed in today’s update.
- General stability and performance improvements
- Fixed issue related to using alt-tab while playing the game (PC)
- Fixed issue with water flow not rendering properly
- Fixed crash related to changing from werewolf back to human form
- Fixed crash related to reloading after changing Load Order of mods
- General bug fixing and improvements with browsing Mods
The patch is currently only available on PlayStation 4 and PC. According to the developer, Xbox One should receive the patch later this week.
Bethesda Softworks is currently investigating all problems brought by the earlier patch. Some major ones should be fixed with today’s update. However, that may still leave other issues in the game. There’s no word on when a fix will arrive for all of them, but the developer is working on it and should introduce further amendments with the next patch.
