Bethesda lists steps PS3 users should follow when applying latest Skyrim patch

Bethesda’s posted some useful tips for PlayStation 3 users who’re still experiencing problems with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim after installing patch 1.4 for the title which fixed the lag issues and various other bugs for the majority of PS3 gamers.

They’ve have posted some steps to ensure that you’re not going to encounter those problems after updating on their official forums:

“The 1.4 patch for Skyrim includes many performance-enhancing updates for the PlayStation 3. A few important things to note:

1. To ensure the fastest jump in performance after applying the patch, be sure to first create a new manual save by entering the save menu and choosing “save game.” You should then restart your PlayStation 3 before continuing to play.

2. If you encounter strange behaviour while playing immediately following application of the patch, do not be alarmed – this is a temporary effect of Skyrim scripts correcting themselves after the update. Once this process runs its course, be sure to make a new save and restart your PlayStation 3.”

In case it doesn’t fix the issues even after trying the above, you should head over to the official forums since Bethesda has said it looks “at forums (including our own), wikis, blog comments, YouTube videos, and more,” when it comes to user feedback.
