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.

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.
