I'm in no rush to play Batman: Arkham Origins, especially after hearing about the frustrating technical issues some players are encountering. WB Games has reached out to affected players and set up what's in the immediate pipeline. An update which addresses three major problems -- infinite falling/falling out of the world, the inability to "continue" the story, and FreeFlow Focus mode not unlocking properly -- is expected to go out "within the next week."
The team is working to fix corrupted saves and crashing/freezing on Xbox 360 in a future update. "We believe we know what is causing these issues and need a few more days to validate before pushing this patch through," wrote WB Games. For what it's worth, some players have been able to avoid freezes by playing Arkham Origins offline. What a mess.
