Developer Bethesda is renowned for crafting open-world games that offer near-unparalleled freedom for the player in terms of how they advance through the campaign. Traditionally the by-product of Bethesda allowing for countless possibilities is that its game builds tend to throw up the occasional unexplained bug. Such issues were prevalent in previous Bethesda titles, such as Fallout 3 and Skyrim.
