    Might be worth checking the stories first before you post them xD The news is a tad out dated now and the patch went live on the launch of the game yesterday for the states and part of Europe. When we get it on Friday in the UK patch will already be live.

    However as the patch was rushed, they are claiming that the patch may destroy game saves atm so they are working on another patch.

    Isn't that what Hexus say?:

    It states that a patch will be released ASAP but the patch is already out there but it breaks saves xD

    However you do have to wonder how an incorrect version made it to gold/steam/pressing. If the second patch isn't out by Friday it looks as if we will get the patch that could potentially break game saves.

    Presumably only breaks saves because the dev version saves aren't meant for retail

    If true though, quite a cock up. Probably easy to do (and I've seen it before in indie game development), but you'd have thought they would have a decent checking system.

    Yeah indie games, quite expectable with a team of a handful, but a studio with quite a substantial amount of staff and the serious amount of hype behind it, it's a bit of a gaff to release what I can only imagine is a review build or a very late beta?

    Microsoft managed it with Vista, I mean look how crap that was
