Skyrim update 1.2 detailed in full

Xbox 360 texture install issue "fixed", PS3 save bug "improved".

Bethesda has offered full details of what's included in the latest Skyrim title update, as spotted by some PlayStation 3 users earlier today.

The headline feature is a patch for a game-breaking PS3 save bug - which it tags as "improved" rather than "fixed" - but there are a number of other performance-enhancing tweaks too, including a fix for the Xbox 360 texture installation issue. See the full changelog below for details, as published on the Bethesda Blog.

The update is available for download on PlayStation 3 now, with a PC and Xbox 360 roll-out expected on Wednesday.
