Bethesda release Skyrim: Special Edition beta update 1.1

When Skyrim Remastered was released on PC it was quickly discovered that the newer "remastered" version actually had a significant downgrade when it came to audio quality, due to Bethesda implementing some heavy audio compression. 
This means that right now the sounds of Skyrim will be much less pleasing to listen to that Skyrim original PC version, though Bethesda has now released their first game patch for Skyrim Special Edition which updates some sound files to not use compression.  
This new Skyrim version 1.1 update is currently in beta and enhances the game's performance, fixes a few rare bugs and upgrades some of the game's audio files.
