Although Bethesda’s attention is now focused on Starfield, the company is not forgetting its biggest hit in recent years: On December 5th, the special edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim received a major update, but something went wrong.
Let’s start with the good: To update Adds support for Steam Deck and ultra-wide monitors (21:9, 32:9) to the Special Edition on PC, and also fixes a number of bugs. The patch only weighs around 60MB on PC and around 13GB on consoles.
With the release of the patch, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition also introduced a Creations tab, which combines the features of the Mods and Creation Club sections and includes a redesigned user interface.
“Creations” is positioned as an evolution of the “Creation Club” program and an improved platform for the distribution and sale of user-generated content (free and paid mods).
Paid mods from trusted authors now sold through Creations can be purchased for credits ranging from $8 for 750 units to $40 for 5500 units. Many players found the prices in the new store to be overpriced.
Additionally, the patch broke many mods, including the Skyrim Script Extender tool (SKSE64). Its developers, together with Bethesda, have already confirmed the problem and are working on a solution. Meanwhile, mod lovers are advised not to update the game.
