Day one patch for Skyrim release

Written by David Stellmack

bethesda

All versions taken to 1.1 with patch

Skyrim will get a day one patch according to an announcement from Bethesda. The day one patch will be released at the same time for all platforms, meaning that the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions will all get the patch, which takes the game to version 1.1.

While Bethesda isn’t saying what will be contained in the day one patch, according to their forums they will announce the fixes and changes contained in the 1.1 patch later this week. The game is still on track to be released on November 11th and at this point, it would be a little late to stop the release.

It sounds, however, that Skyrim will be ready to play with this 1.1 patch.

Probably it's a DLC - an eyepatch* for your character... only $15.99! :P

*(should that be iPatch? $59.999) 8) (double eyepatch)

Day 1 patches are becoming something of a standard. The way I see it, it's just another form of copy protection.

Quoting Bors Mistral:

Interesting idea. I always just assumed it was because they wanted to release as soon as possible, and use the weeks / months between 'release' and 'released to consumers' to finish the game off. But now that you mention it...

Every game out there will always have bugs on their release. The best way to find bugs in games (especially huge title games) is to release it. Having beta testers are a good way to find most of the bugs, but they wont catch them all. That's why there are patches! And I'm happy that they do release the game with bugs, otherwise gamers would have to wait longer for the game to come out.

Then when the (good) companies hear our complaints, they work faster on getting the bugs fixed!
