Fourth Time Lucky?
Having penned quite a few articles now since Skyrim's release in November of last year regarding the slew of technical issues players continue to encounter, I count my blessings that my forty odd hours or so spent wandering the Nord's native land the worst glitch I encountered was the occasional crash and a backwards-flying dragon. Which, I must say, was sort of amazing to witness. Bethesda has promised, however, that the lag PS3 players have been reporting in ever-increasing numbers will be addressed by the upcoming 1.4 patch.
They broke the news on Twitter, which revealed patch 1.4 is set for release this month, so expect it within the next two weeks or so. Speaking on their official website, Bethesda revealed they've been "reaching out" to collect as much data as possible on Skyrim's glitch-riddled issues, and revealed that they've isolated a few perpetrators, namely auto-saving in the background - which can be deactivated - redundant AI cycles and the "dynamic system memory allocation". We hope to have some better news to report soon. [Bethesda]
