Same glitch for me.
I played the game on EASY, no problem.
I played on SURVIVOR, no problem.
I did both playthroughs (well the prologue) before FW 4.46 and patch 1.02
Tried playing New Game Plus SURVIVOR.. glitched
Tried playing New Game Plus EASY.. glitched.
If many people are having the problem, it's either FW 4.46 or patch 1.02 related. Since I played the whole game in 2 modes before the either patches and FW update were released then it eliminates a disc or HW issue.
Do you lose game saves by deleting the game data? I could try a new game without patches to see if the glitch still appears. If it does, neither patch or FW can be eliminated out of the equation. If it works well after deleting game data then it's FW 4.46 related.
Do you know how hard it has been trying to dodge spoilers about the campaign? I got the game on launch and have not yet been able to play single player. Please, if you read this can you take the time to patch the story mode.
I just went to the labolatory and when I got to one point the map couldn't load so I've restarted the game like 20 times and every single time, when I tried to play single player, loading suddenly stops and can't go any further (once I was waiting for about half an hour and nothing happened). Can you please fix this? I really want to play!
Plus, the multiplayer mode works perfectly so the game itself is okay.
