Dragons are truly majestic, terrifying and entrancing beasts. Rulers of the sky, few can hope to meet this huge beasts in combat and live to tell the tale. They swoop through the sky raining down…..wait, is that one flying backwards!?
It’s fair to say that Bethesda’s 1.2 update for Skyrim caused more problems that it actually fixed. Apart from bloody great scaly lizards flying backwards through the sky, the update caused every character in the game, as well as the player’s chracter, to lose their resistances and weaknesses, causing magic to become inrcredibly powerful and a host of other problems. But your problems should hopefully be over by next week as Bethesda have revealed via their Bethblog that they’re working on a fix.
“This week we released update 1.2 across all platforms, and we’ll be releasing an incremental update next week. We anticipate it will be up on PC first, and then hit PS3 and Xbox 360 later in the week.” stated Bethesda. “Among other things, the update will fix issues like magic resistance not calculating properly and the rare, amazing backwards flying dragon. Once the update is released, we’ll share the full release notes”
They went on to say: “After the holidays, we’ll continue to release regular updates for the game — through full title updates, as well as incremental “gameplay updates” to fix whatever issues come up along with rebalancing portions of the game for difficulty or exploits. We plan on having a lot of these, not just a few.”
And finally they admitted that they were a bit aggressive about getting the 1.2 update out, saying: “We’ve also realized that with the millions upon millions of people playing Skyrim, we need to treat our updates with greater care. If we get too aggressive trying to fix a minor issue, we run a risk of breaking something larger in a game like this. To be safe, we are prioritizing code side fixes right now over data fixes. Quest and balance issues are usually data, and those will start rolling in a large way with the January updates.”
