Skyrim Black Screen Update PS5 PS4

Update: The new Skyrim patch is available to download now on PS5 and PS4, weighing in at around 700MB. Hopefully it corrects the various technical problems that have popped up following the release of Anniversary Edition, and the free update for Special Edition.

Original Story: Bethesda has confirmed that it's working on a new update for Skyrim Anniversary Edition and Skyrim Special Edition on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Said update will apparently release this week, aiming to address a number of technical issues that have popped up following the launch of Anniversary Edition earlier in the month.

Most notably, the patch is looking to fix the so-called 'black screen bug' — a problem where players can be shown an inescapable black screen upon loading their save. Other issues include crashing, freezing, and a bugged error message that asks players to free up storage space on their system. Classic Bethesda!

Hopefully this update does the job and we can all get back to adventuring across Skyrim again. Have you been playing through the open world RPG? Avoid the black screen of death in the comments section below.
