The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Gets Surprise Update

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim hasn’t gotten an update with an accompanying set of patch notes in a while now, but that changed this week when the game got a surprise update including a number of different fixes and adjustments that’ll be relevant to those who dabble in the game’s Creation Club elements. That especially means that those who have the game’s Anniversary Edition and all its Creation Club inclusions will benefit from this in particular.

Like some of the other updates that Skyrim has gotten in recent months (the last known update was released in January), the announcement and patch notes for this update were shared within the Bethesda Game Studios Discord server. This particular update dealt only with Skyrim’s Creation Club elements, so if you’re not big on those or don’t have the Anniversary Edition, this update won’t mean a great deal to you.

For all others, you can check out the patch notes for the game’s latest update detailed below:
