Heavy Rain is officially out in North America and is rolling out across Europe throughout the week, but not all is well with the highly anticipated title. Up on booting the game for the first time players are prompted to download a 230MB patch which appears to be causing issues for some. The purpose of the patch is currently unknown as no official changelog was released.
Among the complaints, some players are complaining about game crashes, audio skipping, save/loading problems, and glitches with characters colliding into objects and furniture. The issues only seem to be affecting some players, others seem to have encountered none of the above issues so far.
It’s unclear exactly how widespread the issues are, and we’re still waiting on an official statement from Sony and Quantic Dream. If you are unsure about installing the patch, you can simply skip it by pressing , but you will have to skip installation every time you boot the game.
