Skyrim Special Edition v1.3 has improved 144Hz support

Skyrim Special Edition updated with improved 144Hz support, and more

Skyrim Special Edition didn't launch on the PC without a few hiccups, but Bethesda has already pushed out Update 1.3 to Steam users through a beta release.


The update includes improved stability and performance, as well as better support for 144Hz displays. The patch is only available in its beta form on Steam right now, so you won't have your Skyrim Special Edition updating automatically.

Here's what to expect in the v1.3 update:


General stability and performance improvements

Fixed an issue where Slow Time effects weren't behaving properly

Better support for 144hz displays

How to access the Steam Beta

Log into Steam.

Right Click on Skyrim Special Edition in your Library.

Select Properties.

Select Betas.

A drop down menu will appear. Select Beta.

Select OK.

Wait a few minutes for game to update.

When done, Skyrim Special Edition [Beta] should appear in our Library.
