So, you know that last The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition update? The one that was supposed to fix some crashing issues? Well, we found out over the weekend that it actually introduced a rather nasty bug that impacts the game's slow motion mechanic.
Perks like quick reflexes - which slows time when you block with a shield against a power attack - and the aptly named Slow Time shout simply aren't working as intended. These abilities should allow you to apply slow motion to proceedings while you still move at your normal speed, making them especially useful during combat. However, thanks to this glitch, the applied slow motion is also impacting the player, making the aforementioned techniques pretty useless. Classic Bethesda.
Thankfully, a patch that supposedly fixes the problem is currently being beta tested on PC, meaning that it'll probably be coming to PlayStation 4 either this week or next.
Have you encountered this glitch? Has it been a thorn in your side? Don't try to slow time in the comments section below.
Don't know if it's the same but as an Archer, I regularly have the slo-mo arrow screen come up and the arrow misses. Pretty frustrating
@Mathuselah Funnily enough I don't think that's related - it just happens when the game thinks the arrow is going to kill and then the enemy moves. I feel you though - it's very annoying!
They will hopefully get there in the end typical Bethesda game.
I hate the enemies that magically slide to the side to dodge your arrows, now that really irks me.
Have these patches fixed the constant crashing? I'm still cancelling the updates everytime I fire the game up.
