Many users have been reporting that their copy of Batman: AC are having freezing issues. These freezes occur randomly on both PS3 and Xbox 360 and can be very troubling especially upon boot up. At the time the game begins to search for DLC an error may occur stating that your game save is corrupted and that you’ll have to delete it and start over again. Luckily I happened to stumble across a easy fix (on PS3 anyway).
If your unlucky (like me) and are experiencing this issue then you can try to following:
1. Exit the game
2. Go to your Batman: AC Save data and copy it to a USB, PS+, or another User (In this case I tested on PS+)
3. Delete your data from your console
4. Copy the cloned date you just made
Upon boot up of your game, the data should load fine and continue normally as if the corruption never occurred. Now I’m not 100% this will work every time, but it’s worth a try. For now I recommend that you back up your save data every once in a while (especially if your story progression is far).
additionally if that doesn’t work then a simple console restart may fix the issue.
So far people have reported that the issue doesn’t seem to go away with or without the latest patch. Also for the most part the DLC don’t seem to be the issue, Except if you have the Catwomen DLC installed. This isn’t 100% confirmed, but a few users have reported that the freezing and corrupted data occurs less when that DLC is installed.
