Skyrim 1.3 patch now on Xbox Live

The latest patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has now appeared on Xbox Live, Bethesda has announced. The 1.3 patch grants general stability improvements, along with fixes to some bugs caused by the 1.2 update. We mourn the passing of the noble backwards-flying dragon.

Word came via Twitter after Bethesda announced it had been submitted for consoles. No ETA has been given on the PlayStation 3 patch, but Bethesda has made some suggestions for those suffering lag issues. The problem seems to impact those who rack up long play times, which is easy to do in the large-scale game. Obsidian developer Joshua Sawyer, who worked with a similar engine for Fallout: New Vegas, recently claimed that restrictive RAM limitations are the root of the problem.
