The latest Assassin’s Creed III DLC has received heavy criticism for its apparent deletion of saves.
The DLC, titled Hidden Secrets Pack, apparently erased any saves you might have had, along with stats. Ubisoft was quick to respond:
“Just a quick heads up, 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.”
While the company is busy working on fixing the bug, they offered a tip that might save you from throwing the computer and game out the window.
”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.”
On a scale of 1 to 10, how pissed off are you?
