Dead Nation Patch: Do Not Update

It appears that the patch for Dead Nation that went live last night has a few problems. The following has been posted by Housemarque on the Dead Nation Facebook page:

We are investigating a possible save game problem which occurs after patch v1.06 which was released last night. We have received reports that in some cases the patch resets the campaign progress. In the meantime please do not update if you are worried about losing your campaign progress.

This might be a problem if you have PS+ as by the time you get home Dead Nation may have patched itself. (Dead Nation, PS3)

They need to just remove the patch so no one else could download it.

Well said, was going to have a game of co-op today on this, but Red dead has bears to be killed.

Exactly. It's not hard to do, is it Sony?
DarkTower805  +   1164d ago
Seems pretty obvious right? What's up with the patch though. I wasn't aware of any issues to begin with.

It's likely for the DLC coming next week.

Well I hope my system didn't auto download. I completed the game a while back though, so this shouldn't matter, right? Does the coming DLC have any ties to anything you already completed?

well if it did, you can still delete the patch out the game data section of the xmb...it might not corrupt your save data until you actually try to load the game...

either way, that wouldn't hurt anything...but may not save your save file...

Yea I was thinking that, but also since I already have a save file uploaded to online storage, I should be good either way. I could just delete the broken file and download the good one.

Well if it does delete my campaign progress no big deal. I've been stuck on the last checkpoint in the Graveyard stage for quite some time (solo - morbid). For me, that's the hardest segment of the game so I'd most likely play through again and get stuck in the exact same spot. Seriously, 2 bundles of dynamite and 3 mausoleums with Mouths? yeesh, that's rough.
