As expected, a new safe game will start the game from beginning. That's not a solution for me (my wife). She's stuck at about 75% of the game and she don't want to play it again from start. (And there's still the risk, it could happen again...even with a new start.)
So, Crytek....I really want a fix, which helps us DURING A GAME!!! Why is this so difficult? In the save games, all parameters of the games are saved. The patch should fix the bug of the game AND of course fix all faulty or missing parameters in the already stored safe game data.
So, if you load the game with the installed patch, it will first fix the save games and then continue in a stable state where you last left the game.
If Crytek is not able (or willing) to do this, this was my last Crytek game I ever bought.
