Assassin’s Creed 3 Save Data being wiped out by DLC bug
Save files are something you must always keep safe in cloud.
There’s a DLC bug in one of the Assassin’s Creed 3 DLC and even Ubisoft has acknowledged this and are working to rectify it.
We yesterday reported about the Hidden Secrets DLC which adds some new maps and equipment to the game, and it apparently wipes out the main game or side mission saves, according to a lot of people. The DLC is available to season pass holders and will be released for non-season pass holders later.
“We’re able to reproduce this issue at the studio and are working on a fix/workaround. From what we can tell, this problem seems to be rare and should generally only affect a very small number of players. That said, we’re taking the speedy and complete resolution of this very seriously,” Ubisoft Montreal community developer wrote on the Ubisoft forum.
They have also released a work around which is detailed below.
“AVOIDING THIS BUG: Do not load your saved AC3 game while the DLC is downloading in the background. This appears to be the key trigger for this bug. You can do anything else you want to do, just don’t load up your saved game and play it while the DLC is downloading.”
