Bethesda has been far more hands-on with its latest release The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim when compared to its previous releases, game director Todd Howard says, having already patched the game more often than Oblivion and Fallout 3.
Speaking with GameInformer (via), Howard said: “When you put all this time into something and someone can’t play it, you feel terrible. They have every right to be pissed off.”
“We already have more updates out for this than Fallout 3 and Oblivion in their lifetime. So we’re really committed to fixing everything.”
That said, the latest beta patch for the RPG has hit Steam, though this one should be downloaded only by those affected by issues listed below, Bethesda suggests. And then there’s the whole ‘apply at your own risk’ thing.
– Fixed issue with downloading mods when you are subscribed to more than 50 mods
– Fixed crash when loading a subscribed mod that has been removed from Workshop by the author
– Mod load order functionality
