Update: The patch is out. Looks like it fixes the NPC slowdown bug that was ruining the experience for a lot of people.
I'm not entirely sure this is news, it's...pseudo-news, maybe news....hypothetical news? Anyway over at beth blog they have promised a "major patch" in the "Coming Weeks"...okay. It's speculated this will fix save issues and other issues unaddressed by the first patch. PC users using Nvidia cards will be getting a patch much sooner to fix issues they may be having.
