Apparently, Mass Effect 2 gamers have been finding themselves [very rarely] experiencing a nasty bug that is corrupting save files and ruining hours of hard work and labor.
Thankfully, Bioware’s technical support department aren’t as lazy as Obsidian with their Fallout New Vegas patches and have already begun fixing the issue.
“This patch is then being delivered to Sony ASAP for verification and distribution. We will announce as soon the patch is available. Please see the below patch notes for a complete list of what will be included.” says Bioware.
-Fixed a crash related to memory fragmentation. This fix will also resolve the crashing that corrupted Save Games.
-Slightly improved load times and level streaming.
-Added some telemetry to better improve future titles.
-Updated some strings to fix spelling mistakes (Sorry Kaidan!)
-Fixed the picture frame in Shepard’s Cabin to accurately reflect your love interest choices in Mass Effect: Genesis.
-Fixed a rare crash in the PSN version in Shepard’s Cabin.
But if you’re unable to wait that long…
“There is a very simple work around to ensure the freezing and corruption issues are minimized. Simply restart your game every few hours. By shutting down and restarting your game, you will not encounter the corrupted save issue.” says Bioware.
