Silent Hill: Downpour 360 patch fixes save system and bugs, game coming to Xbox Live Games on Demand

A patch for the Xbox 360 version of Silent Hill: Downpour is available now with many important tweaks, publisher Konami Digital Entertainment announced today.

The patch makes improvements and fixes a number of bugs. A better frame rate is at the top of the list, and according to Konami, the update also fixes the save system. Downpour's auto-save functionality was a source of frustration for many players, but the publisher did not offer details about how the patch changes the system. In addition, the update addresses the glitch in the "Homeless" side quest, and brings other bug fixes and performance improvements as well.

The developers are working on a similar patch for the PlayStation 3 version of Downpour; it will be released "in the coming weeks," according to Konami.

Konami also announced that Downpour will go up on Xbox Live's Games on Demand service for $39.99 starting Oct. 30. Downpour, developed by Vatra Games, originally launched on PS3 and 360 in March.
