While Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim continues to be popular, owners of the PS3 version still have plenty of complaints about the game's lack of memory optimization. Luckily developer Bethesda is still trying to work out the kinks and this week has promised a new update to deal with the remaining issues.
Bethesda's Skyrim 1.4 update promises "long term play optimizations for memory and performance (PS3)," among a handful of other smaller tweaks and fixes. Bethesda said on its blog recently that they are "hoping to finalize this next week, and submit it to the console manufacturers for certification, as well as release on PC."
The PS3 update is meant to fix the game-crippling lag some PS3 users are experiencing after playing the game for 35 hours or more. Other fixes include a fix for "ash piles not cleaning up properly," and a number of quest-related tweaks and fixes.
The PC patch will follow shortly thereafter. Bethesda also said that the Creation Kit is "on track for a public release near the end of the month."
