Having already released a beta version of the patch on PC, Bethesda has now pushed out the newest update for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim‘s Special Edition for everyone on all platforms.
Update 1.1 fixes the game’s audio downgrade (which was due to a compression issue) and also fixes a few problems, including a “rare issue” where NPCs would not appear where they should. The patch also includes “general performance and optimization improvements” and fixes a problem where some interface elements would not appear correctly on some PS4 and Xbox One displays.
Following the October 28 release of Skyrim’s remastered version, players quickly discovered that the game’s audio sounded downgraded due to a compression issue. Bethesda quickly responded to say it was going to fix the issue with a patch. The patch notes for the new update explain that “some sound files” have been updated so that they are not compressed.
