Ubisoft Hunts Sneaky AS3 Bug

Ubisoft is in clean up mode ..for bugs that is. It has recently come to light that some players are experiencing save game loss on Assassin’s Creed 3. The bug can dramatically impact saved games to the point where they revert to a completion percentage far less than what has actually been attained or worse yet reset progress altogether.

Assassin's Creed III Connor

The bug seems to have originated from the latest DLC, Hidden Secrets. Apparently the bug occurs when players download the DLC while playing the game. Advice for now is to avoid downloading the DLC or at very least don’t play or load saved games while the download is occurring.

Ubisoft is quickly moving to correct the error. The bug only affects current season pass holders. The DLC is set to release for non-season pass holders this week.
