Three cheers to Bethesda, who finally rolled out a small patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the PC through Steam that shows big love for gamers rocking more than 2GB of RAM. The Skyrim 1.3.10 patch adds "support for 4-Gigabyte Tuning," otherwise known as Large Address Aware. Lack of LAA support made third-party mods like "4GB Skyrim" popular (as featured in PC Gamer's " Skyrim Mods: the 20 best so far ").
That's really all the patch brings to the table, but it's enough. For the first time, 64-bit systems can strut their stuff. It's not a total game changer, but it could reduce crashes, smooth out framerates, and open the door to prettier graphics, whether by dialing up the settings or via various mods.
To grab the patch, just sign into Steam and it will be downloaded automatically.
