Update 1.4.27 for Skyrim is now on Steam

Bethesda has released a new update for everyone playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the PC. Update 1.4.27 helps further stabilize the game for anyone using mods and just playing the game.

Everyone taking advantage of the Skyrim Creation Kit can worry less about the game crashing when the mod they are downloading gets removed for the Skyrim Workshop. If you are just playing the game then you should still download the update when you can. It fixes plenty of bugs, some of them are minor fixes and some help out a lot. Especially the ones that fix unresponsive controls after charging an enchanted weapon. Or the fix to help you remap your Xbox 360 controller buttons.

Below is the full changelog. Look though it and hopefully you’ll be pleased with the fixes.
