Some Murderer’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Canine: Legion gamers say they’re getting corrupted-save errors on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Collection X variations of the sport, wiping out hours of progress, and, in some instances, forcing them to start out throughout.
The issue is very extreme for Watch Canine: Legion, which maintains solely a single marketing campaign playthrough — that’s, no handbook saving, and no a number of sport saves from earlier factors. A thread on Ubisoft’s official boards for Legion has a number of gamers describing misplaced progress, with neighborhood managers acknowledging that builders are wanting into the issue.
There appears to be no constant set off occasion for the disruption to the Watch Canine: Legion save file. Some report that it has occurred to them from the purpose they switched to a brand new staff member. Others mentioned they assume biking to a different staff member begins the save course of.
One participant puzzled if enjoying the sport on permadeath mode had something to do with it. I’ve performed just a few hours of Watch Canine: Legion on Xbox Collection X because it launched, with a permadeath sport save introduced over from Xbox One, and had no issues. I even did the, er, save-scum factor of quitting to the dashboard when an operative was about to get killed, and had no issues beginning over, finishing a mission, and having the information saved from factors ahead.
In Murderer’s Creed Valhalla, which maintains a couple of handbook save together with autosaves, gamers have reported that their sport save menu reveals a number of saves to be “information corrupt!” and the one possibility is to delete it.
The issue seems to be persistent, affecting all handbook saves from the purpose of the glitch ahead. A assist supervisor within the Ubisoft boards thread requested a participant how a lot house they’d out there on their laborious drive, however everybody stories loads (greater than 100 GB) of room for such information.
“Handbook saves are all corrupt, auto saves are working and fast saves not displaying as corrupt,” mentioned one participant final week. “So mainly have to attend for an auto save earlier than stopping play and hoping for one of the best.”
We reached out to a Ubisoft consultant to ask what’s up, however have but to listen to again.
