So the Skyrim patch…that’s a thing. It came out last week and, as anticipated, it fixed a few things (sorry ladies, I’m officially betrothed). It also broke a few.
As we reported last week, the new patch’s release wasn’t without a few wrinkles (detailed here), including dragons-in-reverse. Bethesda, via their blog, reassured fans that they’re fervently working on a patch to fix the, well…patch.
[…] we’ll be releasing an incremental update next week. We anticipate it will be up on PC first, and then hit PS3 and Xbox 360 later in the week. Among other things, the update will fix issues like magic resistance not calculating properly and the rare, amazing backwards flying dragon. Once the update is released, we’ll share the full release notes.
In summary, look for fewer physics-defying dragons in the next update — sometime later this week, since Bethesda’s blog went up prior to the weekend. Until then, Skyrim still functions — more or less — so keep plugging away at it and enjoy the magic of flawed programming while it lasts.
