Just got the game and it freezes after I get to the first weapons stash.  I restarted the game, got to the same point, and it froze again. 
Just curious to see if anyone else has had the same problem.

I'm with you guys. I guess I won't touch it again until they update it. A little sad, Ubisoft.

well if you're playing on xbox its SAID that u clear you rsystems cache and DO NOT update, because its the patch that screwed the game up.

OK, I'm an idiot, how do you clear the cache?  New to xbox, don't flame to hard!! 
 
update:  nevermind.  I googled it. 
 
Update:  it works, just like LukeDude08 said.

Installing the game, uninstalling, clearing cache, just about everything has been tried and I still can't get it to go past the weapons cache.  Appears it's a bug with just about everyone.  Bummer, I cleared my schedule for most of today and now can't play.

@BoredMind: if you update the game again its gonna freeze, the bug is the patch, if u clear your cache, then DO NOT UPDATE, it will work.

Does anyone know if it's okay to update beyond that point? I'd ideally like to avoid corrupting my save, but I'd also like to play online. :X

This just strikes me as super sloppy on Ubi's part. Not impressed.

So why haven't they stopped pushing the update out then? Wouldn't that be the first thing you'd do when you've found out you've broken your game?

Dammit, I am so pumped to get off work and go play this. Still going to, it's just a bummer to hear about. At least I know in advance. 
 
Looking at the Ubisoft forums, they're aware of it and are "working on it."

Yep, played it last night before that patch and had no problems, playing it today and it freezes in the exact same spot every time (not the spot the OP mentioned though). Nice for a patch to really screw the game up.

Uhm... my console... itself is freezing after the update. I don't even load the game before it freezes. Right after the update it froze. I restart my system... shows someone is online, the freezes.

Keeps happening to me, too.
What a bummer - I played that mission 3 times before I had to go back to work.  I'll clear the cache, then. Good job, Ubi!  :P  
(Cool game, tho)

That's really weird because I got the update and my game didn't freeze at the weapon stash on level 2.

Ubisoft is batting 1.000 lately.  First the whole mess with the PC version of AC2 and now this.

Ubisoft say they have resolved the problem.

Froze in the exact same spot for me. Right after the first weapon stash in front of the painting.

Can someone who isn't 4-5 hours into the game check to see if it works now? Haha. I sort of don't want to lose my save. D:

I haven't had any problems since Kotaku announced that Ubisoft fixed the problem.  I'm not that far into the game.

that problem has been fixed, it has nothing to do with a title update and clearing your cache did nothing to help...

Obviously anyone who is playing the game knows this by now.
