New Skyrim patch “next week”. Updates “prioritizing code fixes”

Skyrim PS3 review after the patch

A new post up on Bethblog says there’ll be an “incremental update” later in the week for PS3. It says it’ll “fix issues like magic resistance not calculating properly and the rare, amazing backwards flying dragon.” No mention of ongoing lag problems though.

Bethesda do say they’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”. They also say “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.” Roughly translated I think that means they’re prioritizing ’making the game work’.
