WARNING: A bug has been discovered in the game that can corrupt your game save if you attempt to download and install ANY of the DLC products while you are actually playing the game. Gamers report that downloading the DLC while they played the game resulted in the system automatically installing the DLC, which caused their game save to be corrupted. It is therefore advisable that the download and installation of any and all DLC be completed BEFORE you load and play your game. Installation of the DLC while the game is not loaded does not result in negative consequences.
