The title update that was made available today for those who purchased Splinter Cell: Conviction on the Xbox 360 will be facing a freezing issue. If you are one of those gamers who downloaded the title update, you will experience the freezing issue on the second level. While UbiSoft is making a patch to fix this issue, they have released a temporary solution to it; remove the title update.
By going to your System Settings and the Hard Drive, press Y and clear the Cache. By clearing the Cache, you will remove all of the title updates and patches installed on your hard drive. Once it’s all removed, play Conviction but don’t download the update. Yes, it’s the only solution as of now.
UPDATE: According to UbiSoft, the update is safe to download now. Go ahead and download the update once again.
