Frame rate issues & crashes are the main concern
Earlier this week, the Switch received the Anniversary Edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. As amazing as it is to finally have this particular version of the game on Nintendo’s hybrid system, it seems some players are encountering performance issues.
A number of Skyrim: Anniversary Switch users are reporting frame rate issues – including stuttering and frame rate drops. Others are supposedly experiencing crashes more regularly now, with a lot mentioning how they’ve been playing the game’s Survival Mode. Here’s a look at one of the videos blowing up on the Nintendo Switch subreddit right now:
Don’t buy Skyrim Anniversary Edition on Switch. Frame rate drops terribly. from NintendoSwitch
This is impacting players who have installed the anniversary content, with the base game still “silky smooth” according to some users. Some suggestions are to try a fresh install if these performance issues persist. Issues like this can often be resolved or at least improved across a series of patches, so hopefully, Bethesda takes note.
The Anniversary Edition of Skyrim comes packed with the base game, add-ons (Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn), and a load of Club Creation content like quests, dungeons, bosses, weapons and spells. There’s fishing, too.
If we hear any other developments, we’ll let you know.
