Bloodstained Patch Issue at Launch

505 Games’ long-awaited, Kickstarter-backed Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has arrived on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a Nintendo Switch release to follow later in the month. Unfortunately, there has already been a patch bug experienced by several players. 505 Games released the official statement below detailing the patch issue:

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM 505 GAMES REGARDING BLOODSTAINED: RITUAL OF THE NIGHT:

“We have been investigating a PS4/Xbox One issue that is blocking player progress in the game. We apologize for this bug and thank you for your patience while we investigate.

The issue occurs when a new game is started before downloading the 1.02 update. After the update, treasure chests will appear in the incorrect open/closed state.

Without the items from these chests, progress is blocked.

Players affected by this bug will be required to restart the game with a new save in order to properly progress.

We investigated a number of options to address this issue and each fix requires a new game to be started. Despite our efforts to provide a fix that preserves pre-1.02 progress, this is the best solution to avoid future issues.

Xbox One players will also be affected by this when the 1.02 patch is delivered next week. Switch players who have a physical copy should download the 1.02 patch before playing.”

This bug appears to be avoidable if you have not already started the game and hopefully will not cause much of a headache for too many players. Has the issue affected you?
