Skyrim Special Edition Latest News: Update to Fix Sound Files Now Available

By Carl Devoux , Updated Nov 07, 2016 06:00 AM EST

The most awaited update for the Skyrim Special Edition in Beta Form is now up for grabs on Steam. Fans of the game is grateful that the developer took time to fix the sound files issues.

The Skyrim Special Edition was earlier remastered for Windows PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. The company Bethesda made an overhaul with the game's graphics to fit the game for the current gen consoles and, for the first time, brought the Skyrim's mods to the PlayStation and Xbox.

Yet, as common with almost all releases, reports of problems and bugs encountered across all three platforms surfaced. Even though not that many Skyrim Special Edition players have reported the problems with the missing NPC, the game does break progression and quests. Some users claim that the PlayStation 4 build of the game has a higher quality audio than that of the PC.

The Skyrim Special Edition newest update gives users optimization improvements for the general performance of the game. It now fixes issues with saved games marked as modded even though mods were inactive. It also corrects the problems of NPCs not appearing on their proper places.

Included in the Skyrim Special Edition newest update is for "some sound files to not use compression" which is a problem that significantly downgrades the audio in the SSE.

Most of the audio of the Skyrim Special Edition comes in compressed form. It is interesting to note that Bethesda said that the new patch update will make the sound files revert to uncompressed format.

To be able to download and try the Skyrim Special Edition update, you will need to access the beta. Log-in to your steam account then on your library, right click on your Skyrim. From there click settings then Betas. A dropdown menu will appear. Select Beta then click 'OK'. It will take a few minutes for the game to update after which the Skyrim Special Edition (Beta) will appear in your library.
