Skyrim Patch 1.2 hits PC tomorrow
Oh the [ESC] key. What a beautiful thing it is. However, if you’ve been playing Skyrim non-stop like me for the past couple weeks, you’ve probably noticed a problem with that little key. It doesn’t fricking work in the menus. This may seem like a small gripe, but when you consider the hours spent in menus throughout your time with the game, not being able to hit [ESC] to exit is kind of a big deal.
Thankfully Bethesda has addressed this issue in it’s latest 1.2 patch, which is slated to go live for the PC tomorrow (November 30th). They’ve also fixed some of the annoying Dragon glitches, dead wedding guests, and mouse sensitivity issues.
The full patch notes are listed below.
