Skyrim's upgrade to the 'Next Generation' likely didn't go down as smoothly as Bethesda was hoping. Though many of their ambitious games launch with a bug or two, Skyrim: Special Edition started off in a bit of a sorry state with crashes and sound issues rife across the board.
So with this page, we hope to document the title's transformation through its regular, official, patches and updates. Version 1.1 went live on November 7, 2016, and who knows how many more we'll see before Bethesda decide to call time on their second venture into the snowy peaks. How's it looking this time around?
