Skyrim 'Update 1.3' hits Steam, submitted for consoles

Bethesda has used its favorite Dragon Shout today, crying "PATCH-THIS-NOW" into the heavens of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim this morning. Update 1.3 has been deployed for PC users via Steam making "general stability improvements," fixes to magic resistance issues that surfaced from update 1.2, and more. The update has also been submitted to Sony and Microsoft for consoles, but no date for its release has been established.

Also, for those asking about the developer enabling 'Large Address Aware,' Bethesda has confirmed that they plan to roll out support for "4-Gigabyte Tuning (Large Address Aware)" next week on PC. Patch notes are available after the break.

The Bethesda blog promises that it will share information on the update hitting PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 when more details are made available. Until now, the patch notes do feature some of the changes available now on PC and coming to consoles.

We're aware that some Shacknews users are having continued problems with the game. To ensure we can investigate properly, please submit your Skyrim-related technical problems to us via our 'Submit Tips' section.
