‘Skyrim Special Edition” Latest News & Updates: Bethesda To Release Fix For Audio Issues Next Week

The remastered version of “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” – “Skyrim Special Edition” - came out though it wasn’t free from bugs. While the graphics were as expected, Bethesda drew some backlash when the audio part of the game was far from impressive.

Several users have reported the poor audio quality for “Skyrim Special Edition”, some looking for ways to improved the remastered version. Bethesda confirmed that they are aware of the problem and that a fix was being worked on already. There is a chance that the update could be rolled out as early as next week (first week of November), GameSpot reported.

While waiting, there are some “Skyrim Special Edition” players who took matters into their own hands. The process is a bit technical, meaning this is best done by folks who are familiar with the internal files to avoid creating more problems on their end.

There was one user named TI36X over at Reddit who said that he extracted the original Sounds.bsa from “Skyrim Special Edition”, packed and zipped it and installed it on NMM in SSE. He adds that there are two folders in BSA (sounds and music) and he achieved the trick with the aid of Nexus Mod Manager.

The tactic required the use of a third-party app which can be downloaded on the web, an alternative that may also come with risks. Hence, it would be best for “Skyrim Special Edition” gamers to exercise a bit of patience until the official fix is rolled out by Bethesda.

The audio issues ring to cast a dark light on “Skyrim Special Edition” which Bethesda is using as a shield for now. With no update on “The Elder Scrolls 6”, this is seen as the best that the company can do as they admit having done nothing major for a possible sixth installment of “The Elder Scrolls” series.
