Ready for a Skyrim beta patch? Yes, Bethesda is awesome enough to issue beta patches for issues you’ve been experiencing with what is currently the most popular game on Steam — The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. What it turns out this patch does is fix several rare errors, quest errors, crashes, as well as addresses memory problems, so for any user I think it’s worth looking into.
To get the update, go into your Steam settings and opt-in for a beta participation that pertains to Skyrim. Steam will then restart and the update will be downloaded.
As for the mod tools, they come out later this month. See the changelog after the break.
