Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Bug Caused Chicken Police

Posted on October 6, 2011 AT 09:01am

THE BUZZ: Skyrim’s Radiant Story system has posed a few crazy bugs that the development team has been trying to iron out before release, one of these bugs was quite peculiar indeed.

Todd Howard, Executive Producer at Bethesda, revealed that at one point the Radiant Story system was causing chickens to report crimes that the player was commiting:

“Let’s see… something that was good lately… but this was a bug – lately we realised that chickens were reporting crimes. I found that very funny. That was just last week: Why are we getting caught? Oh, the CHICKENS are reporting the crimes!”

EGM’s TAKE: It would have been okay to leave in, as long as we could have convinced the chickens to take bribes.
