If you’d like to test out a new beta update for Skyrim on Steam, you should be able to download it now if you’ve opted to take part in betas, it’s mostly a PC only update, so don’t expect anything to be incorporated into any future console updates.

  • Fixed crash when loading a subscribed mod that has been removed from Workshop by the author
  • Mod load order functionality

  • Fixed issue where controls would become unresponsive while charging an enchanted weapon
  • Fixed issue where controls would occasionally become unresponsive while switching from third to first person while using the Arcane Enchanter
  • Fixed issue where controls would become unresponsive if activating a crafting station with autorun active
  • Fixed issue where keyboard would fail if Rename Item was selected before choosing the number of charges, while using Arcane Enchanter
  • Fixed several issues with remapping buttons while using an Xbox 360 controller
  • Fixed issue where pressing Escape button after fast traveling but before the loading would cause certain menus to stop working properly with new PC-specific optimizations that includes new
