Glitch Traps Some In Assassin's Creed II

Word going around the Ubisoft forums and on another site has some Assassin's Creed II players getting stuck in "Hideout," a sequence about 11 chapters into the game, with no way to get out or advance the game.

The glitch appears to be triggered if one turns off the console right after the autosave at the end of Chapter 11. The game then loads up the hideout the next time the game is started, but nothing else loads from the corrupted savefile. Key features of the environment (I won't say which, for spoiler purposes) aren't available so there's no way to advance. You're just running around in a confined space, no way out.

An Ubisoft community developer acknowledged that the ACII team is aware of the problem and "are doing our best to fix this issue as fast as possible." Unfortunately, it doesn't appear a bug fix has rolled yet.

Reports don't say if this affects all versions or just one console, and if the latter, which one is even affected. I have not replicated this glitch - because I don't have the game. The best bet is to just manually save the game after Chapter 11 as soon as the opportunity presents itself. If you have a busted gamesave, your only option is to start over.

    What about the glitch in Chapter 12?
    ;-)

    "If you have a busted gamesave, your only option is to start over."

    Dont people learn their lessons.. Never rely on auto save for any game..

    Keep multiple save games so if something like this happens, or say Fallout 3 ends and has saved past the point of no return, you at least only have to go back a little bit..

      Khuntza, are you aware there's no manual save option on this game? Perhaps you might want to play it before offering up advice, huh?

        Exactly what I was thinkin

    Be good if you mentioned which console this was found on.

    >_>

      "Reports don’t say if this affects all versions or just one console, and if the latter, which one is even affected."

      Be good if you read the article ;)

    i play on ps3 and i glitch a hell of alot, freezes and no loads =/

    I have it for 360 and there's stuff ups all the time that make me reset the console to play again. But the game is worth it, much better than the first one.

    OMG!!!
    I, literally, just finished chapter 11 last night and thought "Ok, Ill stop there. Going to bed."
    So, I did a bit of exploring, some random crap, etc, then shut the console off and went to bed.

    Fingers crossed!

    when you say "chapter 11", should I assume you mean "sequence 11"?

    The game doesn't refer to itself in "chapters"
