Skyrim: Special Edition 1.2 Update Patches More Stability Problems
Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
Skyrim: Special Edition has only been out for two weeks, but has already had two major patches. The latest, released by Bethesda this week, fixes a number of known issues, including water rendering issues, werewolf transformation crashes, and poor mod browsing stability, while also adding alt-tab functionality.
The previous update, 1.1.52, fixed the over-compressed audio that left the remastered Skyrim sounding worse that the five-year-old original. The game still has a lot of bugs – some as old as the original game itself – and suffers a number of stability issues, including random crashes.
We also are testing some new stability fixes for console. Hope to finalize soon.
