Glad to hear it's coming soon, I wasn't aware of this problem until two days ago when it erased all of my progress right before the final mission

I've not experienced this myself. I do however, get a stupid glitch that crashes my game. If you hold someone as a human shield, sometimes 47 doesn't grab one but still stands there like he has someone hostage. But you can't move, and if you go to the main menu, your game will freeze. It only seems to happen when you grab a human shield from the side, but it's fine right from the back of someone. Still very annoying.

I've also noticed you can only grab 5-6 human shields per level. If you go behind someone then, it'll ask you to press A/X, but it won't do anything.

Patch is now live for PS3 in Europe, hopefully 360 isn't too far behind.

Here are the main patch notes for the console patch that is now in submission with the platform holders. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, and point 1 covers all of the crash incidents we have seen reported.
  • Increased game stability that will prevent crashes leading to loss of save data.
  • Contracts Mode is now accessible without downloading or entering an access code. [PS3 only]
  • The disguise parameters on ‘Professional’ difficulties have been tweaked.
  • Displayed high scores are now selected from all difficulty levels.
  • Players are no longer ‘spotted’ during the end cutscene of the ‘train station’ checkpoint in Run For Your Life.
  • Using ‘sleeping pills’ in Contracts mode will now be listed as ‘Accident’ rather than ‘bare hands’ as the weapon used.
  • Numerous network and GUI improvements for Contracts Mode.
  • Train Station Spotted bug fixed.
We may be able to give you slightly more granular detail next week - and as soon as we have a more concrete ETA for patch release we will let you know. Currently it is still on course to be live some time next week (beginning December 10).

Thanks a lot for your patience, and the feedback you've given on these forums - it's helped us to pinpoint and fix things which have been causing issues, and we really appreciate it.

EDIT by Travis@IO: Added 'PS3 only' to the Contracts Pass requirements for clarification.

Once this patch is live we will continue collating information on any new issues that arise.

PS3 EUROPEAN PATCH IS NOW LIVE. We expect the US patch to hit later today but the patch is still pending approval with SCEA.

Probably the most infuriating part of the game initially for me. D:

Update for 360 users:

quote EIDOS
We have received feedback from Microsoft and expect that the 360 Title Update will be approved today. This was later than we had hoped and means that the update is now expected to go live and will be available to download on Wednesday 19 December. We will update the thread as soon as we have confirmation.

Got the update last night, but to be honest i'd never experienced any crashing or freezing at all.
