EGM’s TAKE: This appears to be a PC only update so don’t expect this patch to make it to consoles. The two crash issues related to mods will be a welcome fix to players, especially those who have a lot installed, and let’s face it, with the number of fantastic mods this is a large group. The rest of the fixes appear to be small, niggling issues that shouldn’t have a major impact on your gameplay unless you belong to the small group of players these issues have inconvenienced.
