Dragon’s Dogma Patch Could Corrupt Saves
Capcom has advised gamers that a new update for Dragon’s Dogma could corrupt files and prevent data from being saved or loaded. According to a post on Capcom Unity, a new title update could cause the problem for 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),” Capcom advised. “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.”
Capcom recommends backing up your save before downloading the update, noting “to prevent the possibility of permanent loss of your data, please copy your existing save data (whether it be DD or DDDA) to an external storage device or cloud whenever possible–especially if you are picking up the game for the first time in awhile or switching over to Dark Arisen for the first time.”
For now, Capcom is “exploring the issue” and hopes “to have a solution as quickly as possible.”
