The Steam/PC version of Skyrim went live yesterday with the release of Dragonborn, the game's latest DLC. Dragonborn adds an new area set west of Skyrim, located off the coast of Morrowind, for players of varying experience to adventure and includes an all new storyline replete with new challenges and enemies to face.

Like the previous DLCs for Skyrim, it's not entirely bug-free and contains a few problems. Fans impatient to wait for Bethesda to deal with it through an official patch have instead worked and released an unofficial patch for the game. It's described as a comprehensive bugfixing mod for Skyrim's Dragonborn mod with the intention of fixing every bug not resolved by the developers to the limits of the Creation Kit and community-developed tools.

According to its creators on the Skyrim Nexus, the patch fixes dozens of gameplay, quest, NPC, object, item and text placement bugs, with "many more on the way."

It's developed by the authors of the unofficial Skyrim patch, which has served to alleviate numerous problems with the original game since its release, and is fully compatible with other mods.
