The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Title Update 1.2 Released
About mid-way through last week, Bethesda Game Studios released Title Update 1.2 for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
For those of you who own the Xbox 360 version of the game, this patch fixes the Texture Scaling issue, which means you can now install your game to your HDD instead of playing off of the disc if you wish.
In addition to other various improvements, sadly, the Title Update adds several rather nasty bugs into the mix.
Resistances are no longer calculated correctly, so if you're a magic-wielding character relying on resistances instead of armour to keep you safe, you're going to be dying a whole lot easier now. Dragon instances may also result in the Dragon magically (and hilariously) flying backwards and being untargetable.
Those are the major bugs, with things like bookshelves and weapon racks no longer working correctly rounding out some of the minor bugs introduced.
Thankfully, Bethesda Game Studios will be releasing an additional Title Update by business week's end to address these problems.
