Bethesda has released The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim update 1.21, which is an unannounced title update. While there’s no new content included in this patch that’s out now for both next-gen platforms, and last-gen (and PC), this should fix some of the nagging game-breaking issues affecting the game.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Update 1.21 Patch Notes:
Update: Bethesda has released the official patch notes!
- Fixed a problem preventing some doors in Rielle from opening properly.
- Fixed an issue where Russian and Polish notes were not displaying text properly.
- Fixed an issue where German and French players were given incorrect menu text when leveling up.
- Fixed an issue where players were experiencing a “black screen” and upon launching
Bethesda has not issued the official patch notes just yet, though some people on the game’s subreddit have chimed in on what this patch is for.
One user has mentioned that this patch should fix the black screen and the 0kb bug on PS4. What is the 0kb bug? Here’s an explanation from Reddit:
Hopefully, this is sorted out for real, as that bug can wipe out hundreds of hours of progress, which no one wants to suffer to. On the PC front, someone has reported that after updating the game, Skyrim won’t even run.
The last patch before this one was for the 10th Anniversary Edition, which we posted and have details of right here.
