Skyrim PC Patch 1.3 Still Doesn’t Eliminate Crashes to Desktop

Crashes and blue screens of death are still plaguing Skyrim after update 1.3

Bethesda released a brand new patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the PC yesterday, taking it to version 1.3, finally resolving some of the serious issues that appeared after the previous update, 1.2, was released last week.

Sadly, while quite a lot of glitches and problems were resolved by the new patch, the game still crashes quite frequently, as lots of Skyrim owners shared their problems with us and with Bethesda on the game’s forums.

It seems that there’s no pattern to these game errors, as no matter where the players were in its virtual world or what quests they wanted to pursue, the Skyrim always crashed to their desktop or, worse, resulted in a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) system error that forces users to restart their computer.

Bethesda has yet to comment on these frequent crashes, but we might expect a new patch, or at least a small hotfix, to appear sometime next week, after update 1.3 is released on consoles like the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.

Until then, how has your Skyrim experience go after patch 1.3 on the PC? Share your thoughts below.
