Assassin's Creed 3
players need to be aware that there is a bug that is wiping user's saved data. Specifically, players have reported losing their progress made on side and main missions. Ok, so now you are panicking about losing all your hard earned progress, so lets see how you can avoid the problem.
Do not load your saved AC3 game while the DLC is downloading in the background
For a start the error seems to happen when you download this week's Hidden Secrets DLC, specifically while playing the game. Ubisoft had this advice to avoid the problem: "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."
Ubisoft Montreal community developer Gabe Graziani had this to say on the problem "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."
Only season pass holders have access to this DLC at the moment, with non-season pass holders getting access to the content next week. Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon.
