Assassin’s Creed III Hidden Secrets DLC Bug Wiping Save Data

Posted on December 6, 2012 AT 09:27am

Ubisoft has announced that it is working on a fix for a rather nasty bug that cropped up in Assassin’s Creed III following the release of the Hidden Secrets DLC.

The bug in question is causing players on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 to lose their main mission or side mission data. Gabe Graziani, community developer at Ubisoft Montreal, advised players on the game’s forums not to load up a saved game while downloading the DLC.

“Just a quick heads up, we’re able to reproduce this issue at the studio and are working on a fix/workaround,” he said. “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.”

“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.”

Have you been affected by the bug? Let us know in the comments below.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
