Bethesda patches up Shivering Isles object bug

The Shivering Isles bug that has rendered Oblivion unplayable in many ways has been fixed by Bethesda in a beta patch for the PC version of the RPG expansion.

The bug, which occurred as soon as Shivering Isles was installed, was linked to object IDs and caused newly created objects in the game world to disappear.

The patch can be downloaded from theofficial Elder Scrolls website.

Despite reports that the same bug is present in the Xbox 360 version of Shivering Isles, Bethesda said yesterday it's not been able to replicate it but is investigating.
