Jason Bergman, Senior Producer for Bethesda, has gone on their forums to update customers about issues plaguing the release of Fallout: New Vegas
As you may have seen, we released a patch over Steam for PC users last night. While we didn’t release a full changelist, the patch contains quest and scripting fixes. It’s not a minor hotfix, it contains over 200 fixes in all. We are in the final stages of testing this update on both 360 and PS3 and we hope to have them out to users very soon.
On consoles, we are aware that a small group of 360 users are seeing a DLC warning which is preventing you from loading save games. We are absolutely looking into this bug now, along with other reports of save game corruption. It is our highest priority right now that we find out what is causing it. In the meantime, we recommend you save often, and revert to an older save if this occurs.
So among the 200 fixes, currently being tested for release, Bethesda is also working on issues players have reported regarding corrupted saves and weird bugs. Bergman also encourages anyone that encounters further bugs to head over to their forums and update them on potential bugs.
Just for fun, let us show you some!
Some users have reported installing the game to your harddrive can potentially circumvent some of the issues with game freezes and saving/loading game issues. We cannot verify the legitimacy of these claims, but it never hurts to install the game, right?
