Update 1.2 for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was made available on the PlayStation 3 earlier this week, and today on the Xbox 360 and PC. While this update theoretically fixes a number of significant issues, mostly in regards to the console versions of the game, players are currently being advised to avoid the patch until Bethesda can look further into it.
In an unfortunately unsurprising turn of events, it seems that Skyrim‘s 1.2 update may have potentially broken more than it fixed.
As with all bugs, these issues most likely won’t be experienced by everyone who installs the patch. That being said, a sizable group of players are currently reporting that the PlayStation 3 version of Skyrim is still having noticeable framerate issues, as well as the fact that the game seems to have become unable to recognize magic resistance.
Thankfully, amidst the madness of potentially gamebreaking issues, a sign of hope has emerged.
