As well as the above fixes, Warner Bros wanted to give an update on some of the other issues.

Corrupted Saves Update

We are aware that a small number of players have reported losing their saved game files due to data corruption. Specifically, when trying to choose a saved file story slot to continue from, the system indicates that the file is “Corrupted” and if selected, an error message appears which notifies the user, “The save is corrupt. Please delete it.” The upcoming planned patch for Xbox 360 addresses this issue in a way that once players have downloaded the patch, it should greatly reduce future instances of corrupted saves.

For those players who have already experienced a corrupted save as described above, we advise that they start a new game, as unfortunately, a corrupted game cannot be salvaged. In this case, a corrupted game means that the file is broken at the operating system level.

The new code in this next patch is expected to reduce the occurrence of corrupt files stemming from files crashing while saving. The patch includes an overhaul of the way the save files are handled, such as minimizing the time files are opened for writing and adding a backup system of save files to any new updated save on the hard drive. As a reminder, please do not turn off, unplug, or otherwise shut down your console while a save is in progress as this can damage the existing save file.

We understand that this situation is very frustrating for those that experienced this issue and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

New Millennium Skins Pack and Infinite Earths Skins Pack Errors

Some player have also reported not being able to use the skins in the New Millennium Skins Pack and Infinite Earths Skins Pack in Multiplayer mode on Xbox 360 - the teams are also aware of this and are investigating a fix for it.

For all Xbox 360 users who purchased their Season Pass from GameStop and are experiencing issues with redeeming the content of their Pass, please contact GameStop directly at: 1-800-883-8895 8:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. (CST) 7 days a week.
