Skyrim 1.3 Patch Won't Fix PS3 Lag, Future Updates Will - Bethesda
Bethesda is fixing Skyrim's PS3 lag problems, but not in the next update.
Published on Dec 7, 2011
Skyrim won't be immune to the potentially game-crippling issues that have affected it since launch (especially on PS3) by the time the next update hits, Bethesda has confirmed.
"While the 1.2 update fixed the long-term play issues for most PS3 users, we are aware that is not the case for some. We’ve been reaching out to a number of those users to collect save games, so we can take a look at their specific issues," reads an update on the Bethesda blog.
While the next Skyrim update, 1.3, is in final testing it won't address the issues - yet. "Right now we know it’s not one thing, but a combination of smaller ones that some folks are seeing, but others are not. Some seem to be the PS3 autosaving in the background (you can turn that off), some may be SPU AI updates, and some may relate to dynamic system memory allocation," explains the post.
"These fixes are not in the current 1.3 update that is in final testing, but will be in future ones. We understand how frustrating it can be when your game is having issues, and we thank all of you for your continued feedback and patience. Rest assured we take your gameplay experience seriously and will continue working on this until it’s resolved."
Bethesda is also working on bringing out the Skyrim Creation Kit for PC users in January.
