Bethesda planning to release another Skyrim PS3 patch soon

Bethesda’s highly regarded titles are known for some of the grandest adventures in some of the biggest worlds ever conceived in gaming. On the flip side, those same games are infamous for sometimes being incredibly buggy. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been no exception, with the PS3 version being particularly troubled. Bethesda now says that by the end of the month another patch will be live that might finally make the PS3 version playable for the unlucky gamers affected by lag in that edition.

The news of patch 1.4 for Skyrim came from the official Twitter account, saying that the lag issues would hopefully be addressed in that update. The 1.4 update is planned for some time in January, though we aren’t sure if this patch, like previous versions, will also go live on 360 and PC to deal with the various problems on those systems. Still, don’t fret lag-plagued PS3 players because Bethesda seems committed to fixing this problem. In the meantime, watching Mega 64’s awesome tribute to Skyrim might ease the pain.

    This game rocks. I was holding out too after hearing about the issues that were arising on the I am literally STILL pissed at myself for keeping myself from this absolute masterpiece. This is the best game I have ever played in my life PERIOD. Get it guys, if you are on the fence, and this "type" of game is ANYWHERE near your will NOT regret it! And yes I have the PS3 version , and I have played it on both of my PS3's, very little problems, I think it has froze during autosaves on travel 3 times now in about 100 hours of gameplay over 3 files....and when you turn off autosaves, it runs way faster on loads.

    I hope ps3 owners can have a version up to scratch with the 360 version eventually; it's only fair considering they paid the same money as PC and 360 owners such as myself.

    im still not getting this game until I can be certain that the game is working how they can justify charging for a broken game is beyond a joke.

    The last one fixed the problem for me, mostly. Every once in a while I have some lag issues, but it goes away within a few minutes. I have only had it actually freeze a couple times recently. I had problems with it for a while right after the first patch, but it went away. From what I can tell though, I am extremely lucky with somewhere around 150 hours logged into my save game. Hurray for ME!

    About time. I've been holding out on Skyrim because of all the bugs. But Batman Arkham City and BF3 multiplayer have been nursing me through lol

    They'll probably fix the lag and then forget about the freezing :/
