EA patches The Saboteur on PC

Fixes some but not all problems.

EA has issued a beta patch for the PC version of The Saboteur in the hope of alleviating some of the problems encountered by players following the game's release earlier this month.

The readme notes for the patch, released on Friday, claim that it "no longer freezes during play" on systems with ATI 3000, 4000 or 5000 series graphics cards running Windows Vista or Windows 7 in 32-bit or 64-bit configurations, which gives you an idea of the scope of the original trouble.

However, the publisher is still advising those of us with quad-core CPUs to disable a couple of processors in order to avoid "streaming glitches". You can do this by following instructions in the readme, although it's "not a full proof fix" [sic].

The patch is available from the Pandemic Studios website and you can post any issues you're having on the EA forum (thanks Kotaku). Another patch is expected soon.
