Bethesda has confirmed there is a patch in the works to fix a devastating game-ending bug in the Xbox 360 version of Shivering Isles.

The bug - if you're unlucky enough to get it - appears late in the game and causes items to disappear, rendering the game save useless and leaving you little choice but to start over from the very beginning.

The patch has been available to PC users since April 12 but it's taking a little longer to configure for Microsoft's box.

"There's a chance the patch will not make its purported Monday deadline," said production director Ashley Cheng in a forums post, "but the good news still is that there is a patch and it is complete and coming very soon."

We'll let you know when it arrives
