Dragon's Dogma update corrupts save data, warns Capcom

Firm advises gamers to copy save file to external storage device

Capcom has issued a warning to Dragon's Dogma players that the recent Title Update patch is corrupting save data.


"A number of users have encountered an unforeseen issue with a recent downloadable Title Update (patch)," said the firm in a statement. "The TU, in some cases, has caused players' DD save data to become corrupted, meaning the game will no longer save or load their game progress."

The issue is affecting players of both the original Dragon's Dogma on Xbox 360 and the recently released Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen for PS3.

While Capcom works on a fix, it advises players to copy working saved data files onto an external storage device or cloud "whenever possible", particularly "if you are picking up the game for the first time in awhile or switching over to Dark Arisen for the first time".

It adds, "If you experience repeated issues with your save data becoming corrupt, please try playing the game offline while we investigate the issue. We're exploring the issue currently and hope to have a solution as quickly as possible. Many apologies for the inconvenience."
