Skyrim Patch 1.2 Detailed

PS3 Patch In North America Available Now

Yesterday, news emerged that a patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim had been deployed for select PS3 players. Well, that patch - imaginatively titled 1.2 - is now available for PS3 owners in North America, with its counterpart for the Xbox 360 and PC expected to arrive tomorrow. No word on whether PS3 players in the UK or Europe should look out for the 1.2 patch, but if you've been suffering through slowdown, glitches and bug-addled quests, this patch looks set to shore up Skyrim's leaky framework.

UPDATE 1.2 NOTES (all platforms unless specified)

  • 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)

No quest fixes? (Thieves Guild is broken for me!). Disappointed...

They NEED to fix the thieves guild armor glitch. You can't drop any other quest items from your inventory so why would they let you drop quest item gear?! It's enough that I can't continue my save because the thieves guild was one of the last things I had to do.
