Another lost all progress post!

Game mode: [Online | Singleplayer]
Problem: [Crash | Bug | Performance | Misc]
Region: USA

I’ve had the game for a few weeks now and like most others its a love/hate relationship. I started playing PVP but grew tired of roving bands high level players (40-60) continually killing me and taking all my supplies. I then started playing PVE but the lag issues were unbearable whenever around some of these ridiculous sprawling bases/cities some of these clans build.

I then decided to play solo and while the above issues were alleviated I grow frustrated by only being able to make it to level 32 or so before it fails to save when returning to the main menu and I lose everything. I can tell when its going to happen as usually the progress bar would make it about a 1/3 of the way and then I would be on the main menu screen. When the game fails the progress bar usually gets to about 98% and it freezes. This last time I let it sit for 3 hours and it never recovered. I restarted the game and hit continue like normal and it took me to the character creation screen. Backed out and tried again with the same result. Created a new character and ran to where my base was and there were a few chests, a bench and the 4 thralls I had which proceeded to attack me.

This has happened 4 times now and I have lost about 30 hours or so. There really isn’t any point to playing the game anymore considering the developers made a DLC cash grab instead of fixing the issues that are plaguing the game.

Maybe its time to get together and start a class action lawsuit and get out money back considering I paid 50 bucks for a game that I cant play!

Can any online players chime in? Is online play safer cause it’s saved on the server? Or does this corrupted save stuff happen no matter what? I’ve seen a lot of posts on here and reddit of people having stuff disappear so I don’t think it’s only offline single player console problem but I hate online play so I don’t have experience with that side

It’s definitely not safer online, there are lots of posts both here and on Reddit that players lose progress on official servers too. I’ve always enjoyed single player and I never had any problems with it until two days ago, after I’ve built a Khitan base. I don’t know if the Khitan DLC introduced any kind of instability, or made it more severe, or it’s because of the hotfix that dropped after the Khitan DLC.

But looking at the last two days’ worth of posting in here and also Xbox forum, it seems the game is spiraling out of control.


I have it noted down from some of the other posts as well and will ask the team to look into the issue. Let me apologize for the frustration this has caused.
