Lost all monsters after PS4 patch update

Hello there guys, I just installed the latest patch for PS4 so I’m on version 2.4.2 but the game got stuck on the load screen when I tried to portal to a realm.
I quit the game and loaded it and it seems I don’t have any monsters in my party and the stables are empty.
Trying to go to a realm through a portal makes the game get stuck on the load screen as well. After summoning a creature I was able to portal to a realm with no problems.
Also I lost the artifacts that were equipped to the party creatures

A hotfix has been submitted and should be out in a day or two. If you don’t overwrite your save files, they’ll be fine after the hotfix is deployed. I’m really sorry about this!
