I got new DCL today in the morning and was happy about playing S:GW2 in the evening.
Unfortunately: I can not!
I start the Siberian Strike campain, the mission briefing screen shows,
in the upper-right corner appears the saving game icon and HD starts working heavily.
Then, after a few seconds of freezed screen all I get is this "CryEngine Error" window:https://dl.dropbox.com/u/18389410/SGW2_CryEngine_Error.jpg
This is all strange, because the original single player campain still works.
There is no problem with mulitplayer as well.
Anybody with same problems?

***** SOLUTION SUMMARY*****
After the latest patch form CI, relesed 11-04-2013 the memory allocation problem should be fixed:
"- Fixed the Memory allocation Crash at the beginning of Siberian Strike DLC which was occurring on lower end machines"
There is one more thing, not described in the patch summary, but mentioned in this discussion by "CI_tech":
If you have a 32-bit system which recognizes only about 3GB of memory, or your PC has less than 4GB of RAM than you must go to the advanced graphics settings and set texture details to minimum. This should make DLC working.
As my tests showed (Intel Core 2 Quad, Vista 32-bit, 4GB RAM, GeForce GTX 460) you may set all the other graphics settings at maximum. Only texture details should be modified to get rid off this bug.
Finally: If you made and error report and were asked by CI to run game in debug mode, then you have to turn this mode off. Otherwise you will not get the patch! In my case debug mode made also the multiplayer games not working (black screen after loading the map).
