After the Patch 1.03 I have the same issue. Hardcrash after closing the game 3 times. PS4 is shut off.  Twice hardreset - PS4 reboot by himself during missions. Freezed during loading screen. Before this Patch i have only disconnect  issues

Bump. Not playing this game anymore until fixed. Then I'll probably play the feces out of it. But since patch 1.3 I've had exactly the same problem as everyone else in this thread.

Same problem here. When it reboots, it says there was an error in system files. 

I was thinking it MIGHT be coincidence, but it happened 3x in a row, so I decided to Google search, and here I am. Not cool at all.

This started happening to me last night and 100% of the time today. I’m literally to afraid to play the game now.

I had this problem too, what I did was uninstall Anthem then I booted the PS4 into safe mode and repaired the database. Installed Anthem after and I haven’t gotten it since.
