The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launched today to high praise from critics. However, Bethesda Softworks' latest action role-playing game isn't without bugs, and one related to low-resolution textures on the Xbox 360 seems to have slipped through.
In a post to Bethesda's official forums, a company representative recognized that the Xbox 360 version of Skyrim loses graphical fidelity when it is installed to gamers' hard drives. The representative noted that the issue revolves around the game's "heavy use" of the system's cache and that when playing off the hard drive, high-quality textures fail to load on occasion.
The representative said that Bethesda plans to include a fix for this bug with the game's next title update. However, the studio has not yet established a date for this patch. Until then, the studio recommends gamers not install Skyrim to their Xbox 360 hard drives.
