Skyrim patch 1.3 available now on Xbox 360

If you’ve been patiently waiting for Skyrim patch 1.3 to arrive on consoles and fix the rather.. strange bugs that the previous patch introduced, you’ll be pleased to know that the update is now live – but only on Xbox 360. For now.

A PlayStation 3 version of the patch is awaiting approval of Sony, Bethesda explains, but it should be out soon – in fact, it’s already hitting PSN in Europe. Bethesda didn’t provide a timeline as to when the patch would hit other regions, but it should be out within the next couple of days, at the latest.

Aside from fixing backwards-flying dragons and resist buffs not working at all, the patch also addresses a few other issues, including an issue with the Radiant Story quest system.

To see the full list of changes introduced in Skyrim patch 1.3, see below.

  • General stability improvements
  • Optimize performance for Core 2 Duo CPUs (PC)
  • Fixed Radiant Story incorrectly filling certain roles
  • Fixed magic resistances not calculating properly
  • Fixed issue with placing books on bookshelves inside player purchased homes
