Assassin’s Creed III DLC Brings Save Wiping Bug

Ubisoft has acknowledged a serious Assassin’s Creed III bug which is wiping users’ save data. Various players have reported having their main mission or side mission progress wiped clean and losing countless hours of game time. The error happens when users download the Hidden Secrets DLC, a compilation of the various pre-order bonus levels and outfits made available this week to those who subscribed to the Season Pass.

“We’re able to reproduce this issue at the studio and are working on a fix/workaround,” Ubisoft Montreal community developer Gabe Graziani advised fans on the official Ubisoft forum. “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.”

The bug seems to occur when players download the DLC through the in-game store while playing the game. The add-on will be released for non-Season Pass holders next week. Ubisoft issued the following advice to prevent any other gamers from being affected by the bug:

“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.”

It’s always bad when a bug this bad affects games. I remember a bug in SoulCalibur III that would wipe your save if you played the Story mode and Chronicles of the Sword mode before completing the other and you went back and forth between them. Do you remember any bugs like these you have memories of? Have you been affected by this Assassin’s Creed III bug? Leave a comment below and let us know.
