Skyrim Patch 1.02 Now Available for Xbox 360

Skyrim Patch 1.02 Now Available for Xbox 360

For those that missed Kyle’s post earlier in the week, Skyrim Patch 1.02 was detailed and released earlier for PS3 but now 360 gamers can download the patch that looks to improve textures and stability issues. Check out the full patch notes below and for PC gamers the patch should also be available today.

UPDATE 1.2 NOTES (all platforms unless specified)

  • Improved occasional performance issues resulting from long term play (PlayStation 3)
  • Fixed issue where textures would not properly upgrade when installed to drive (Xbox 360)
  • Fixed crash on startup when audio is set to sample rate other than 44100Hz (PC)
  • Fixed issue where projectiles did not properly fade away
  • Fixed occasional issue where a guest would arrive to the player’s wedding dead
  • Dragon corpses now clean up properly
  • Fixed rare issue where dragons would not attack
  • Fixed rare NPC sleeping animation bug
  • Fixed rare issue with dead corpses being cleared up prematurely
  • Skeleton Key will now work properly if player has no lockpicks in their inventory
  • Fixed rare issue with renaming enchanted weapons and armor
  • Fixed rare issue with dragons not properly giving souls after death
  • ESC button can now be used to exit menus (PC)
  • Fixed occasional mouse sensitivity issues (PC)
  • General functionality fixes related to remapping buttons and controls (PC)
Personally the texture issue never bothered me but it’s nice that Bethesda fixed it. I’m still having issues with the game freezing occasionally when bringing up menus during combat or when switching too quickly from menu to menu, but that can be fixed by hitting the guide button. Still it would be nice if they cleaned up that issue as well. The dragons corpses seem to be gone, which sucks but it stabilizes the game as a few people were reporting massive framerate drops when running past the corpse. Hopefully we’ll see a new patch soon to fix a few more quest bugs that people have been running into.
