Lionhead Studios has released the first patch for recently-released PC god sim Black & White 2. It's now available for download via the Lionhead website.
The good news is that the v1.1 patch fixes a long list of crashes, hangs and graphical issues and adds a couple of new options. The bad news is that any save games you've already created won't work with the new patch - so if you've been playing the game for a few days now, you'll have to start all over again from scratch.
Lionhead says we can expect a v1.2 patch "at some point in the (near) future" - and that hopefully it'll be compatible with v1.1 save games.
Black & White 2 is in the shops now. If you still haven't decided whether or not to invest in a copy, be sure to check out our review.
