In a recent post on Capcom Unity, the publisher has warned that a recent title update for it’s free-roaming fantasy RPG Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen may corrupt existing game save data.
“A quick public service announcement for you Dragon’s Dogma and Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen players. A number of users have encountered an unforeseen issue with a recent downloadable Title Update (patch),” reads the recent post. “The TU, in some cases, has caused players’ DD save data to become corrupted (cue Olra purification jokes), meaning the game will no longer save or load their game progress.”
The update will affect both the original version of Dragon’s Dogma, as well as the recent re-release Dark Arisen. In the post, Capcom has advised players to back-up their save data to the cloud or to an external storage device. The publisher has also advised players to play offline if concerned, while they work around a solution.
Just as note to our readers, Capcom have assured us that this corruption has only affected a certain percentage of players, but it never hurts to back up what could be hours and hours of hard-fought progress.
We’ll bring you further updates on this issue as and when they happen.
