April 5, 2012

The new Skyrim patch will fix a bunch of stuff and give you a bunch of new killcams. The killcams are awesome – check out the video if you haven’t already.

We heard a while back that a new patch was coming for Skyrim and we got to see the video, and now that day is here. Here are a few highlights from the patch:

New Features

  • Your Smithing skill increases will now factor into a created item’s value
  • You’ll have improved distance LOD transition in snow-covered landscapes
  • You’ll have improved visual tranistion when submerging in water

Bug Fixes

  • There will of course be the usual general crash fixes and memory optimizations
  • The issue with Deflect Arrows not culculating right will be fixed
  • Mission-specific bugs will be addressed
  • Your followers will sneak properly when you are (that’s handy!)
  • The issue in which letters and notes featuring random encounters appear blank will be fixed
  • The issue in which the game would crash when loading saves relying on data no longer being loaded will be fixed
  • The rare issue in which skills don’t increase properly will be fixed
You can read the full list a the BethBlog.

Furthermore, Bethesda has released some interesting stats that say that the average Skyrim player plays the game for 85 hours. What’s more, 30% of Skyrim players have sunk over 100 hours into the game. Wow.

Check out the new killcams below.
