Stop! For The Love Of Skyrim!


You Xbox 360 Skyrim players should hold off on installing the latest Elder Scrolls title to your hard drives until a patch is released.

Bethesda issued a statement recently that urged gamers to wait on installing the game due to the way the Xbox 360 handles dynamic streaming of the game's textures in-game.
“We’ve seen a few reports of certain textures temporarily scaling down on the Xbox 360, and not scaling back up. We have verified that this issue does not occur when playing off the disc and when the game is fully cached (not installed).

“Skyrim makes heavy use of the Xbox 360 caching system, and caches over the normal course of play while in menus or interiors. This cache can be wiped when other games are played or when the user manually removes it. We’re working on a solution in the next title update for those who have installed the game.”
Yep, boot from disc seems to be the best route to go for now.

We'll keep you posted.

Skyrim is out now worldwide for the 360, PS3, and PC.
