Bethesda has finally done away with a rather severe glitch with the Anniversary Edition. The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. Despite being considered one of the most profitable video games of all time, the role-playing game has a reputation for being somewhat tainted in places. In fact, it’s almost become a meme in its own right, with players showing off some of the more amusing issues they’ve experienced while in Tamriel, and such glitches seem to exist years after the game’s release.
Even SkyrimThe Anniversary Edition has several bugs that break the game. Considering this re-release only came out last year and the studio implemented some extra features like Creation Club mods, many will be forgiven for thinking that Bethesda would have fixed some of the major bugs that have plagued the game for nearly 11 years. years. Luckily, it looks like at least one particular issue has now been resolved.
In a post on the Bethesda help page, the developer revealed that a recent update for Skyrim a major issue with the game has now been fixed that prevented some players from accessing the main menu. It also gave errors from the mod menu and Creation Club. Up to this point, the developer has provided advice on how to resolve the issue, including turning the console off and on, in this case the Xbox, and waiting 30 seconds before turning it back on. Otherwise deleting some old saves and/or going offline was another solution. As you can imagine, this would be quite inconvenient for those who have experienced these issues.
Even though some of the bugs are game breaking, you can encounter some useful bugs in Skyrim, such as the one that reduces the cooldown between shouts, or perhaps most famously, where a basket or cauldron is placed over the vendor’s head so the player can steal without repercussions. Despite the usefulness of some of them, it still highlights how buggy an epic open-world game can sometimes be.
FROM Elder Scrolls 6 now in development, though likely still a few years away from completion, many in the gaming community are ready for the next game in the multi-year series. Skyrim has a long shelf life, but many probably think it’s time to move on. Whether TPP6 will be just as bug-ridden upon release is impossible to tell, but fans are well aware of the reputation that Bethesda games have.
The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Available now for PC, PS3, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
