The framerate problems have been addressed.
Update: We learned today that the patch for PC and Xbox 360 will go live this Wednesday. This is a current ETA for the patch, and we will update if things change. The original story follows:
Skyrim's map is bigger than you thought it was!
Skyrim's map is super big but as a PC player discovered, it's even bigger than you thought it was. This player found a gate in the southeastern part of the map and turned on a "no clip" mode to go beyond the gate. There he found an entirely different landscape.
After the food and crowds have gone, you can look forward to a fixed Skyrim experience.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is easily one of the hottest games out right now and many gamers are enjoying slaying dragons and collecting books. However, there have been issues with texture popping and frame rates since launch and players are wondering when these problems will be fixed. Bethesda Softworks had stated that they were working on a patch to resolve these issues but had been vague on when this patch would be released.
Don't worry, they're on it!
Some users playing Skyrim on the PlayStation 3 are having frame rate issues when their save files reach 6 MB. It's not known how widespread this issue is but enough have brought up the issue in Bethesda's official forums and now Pete Hines, Bethesda's VP of PR and Marketing, has issued a statement.
All they had to do is name their child Dovahkiin.
Back in February, Bethesda Softworks challenged its fan base to name their child Dovahkiin if it was born on 11/11/11, the same day The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim would be released. In return, Bethesda would give the parents free Bethesda games for life. Well, Megan and Eric Kellermeyer are the proud parents of Dovahkiin Tom Kellermeyer. Bethesda released this statement: "Be it the real world or the game worlds we create, we wish young Dovahkiin the best in all his adventures. And if Alduin ever reaches this realm, we’ll be in touch."
