Bethesda has confirmed that the awful lag issues affecting the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be addressed in update 1.4.

"We're addressing that in the 1.4 update planned for this month," Tweeted the Bethesda Blog Twitter account.

Up until now it was only known that the 1.4 update was in development - it wasn't clear what issues would be fixed.

Skyrim fans should check out this collection of pretty cool concept art, or for something more amusing this feature looking at Skyrim's best Fus Ro Dah videos. Analysis

A fix for the lag issues plaguing the PlayStation 3 version of Skyrim can't come soon enough for players, with many gamers reporting that their game has become completely unplayable. Fingers crossed it won't be long until update 1.4 is available to download.

I've unfortunately given up. I didn't really want to. But, there have been FAR too many reports of PS3 lag now. I'm not willing to dedicate any more time into something thats pretty much going to fail on me. Shame.

I think you'll find it's the latter.

How about fixing the constant freezing that mine has started to do now too, which requires turning off the PS3 and subsequently receive a rather worrying check for a corrupt hard drive? Until this is fixed I'm not playing any more!

It's been 2 months already! My game is at 100 hours now, so that's a lot of time that I wouldn't have been able to spend on the game had I bought the PS3 version.

I do often wonder if this is a new engine or just a heavily modified Gamebryo.
