WARNING: Save Corruption (PS5 version)

9 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I just had my save corrupted 20 hours in. 😤 I was playing the PS5 version, and I have no idea what caused it.

 

I was exploring a base and opened my PDA to read an entry for something I just scanned, and suddenly I started getting an error saying the game save operation failed; despite the fact that I didn’t ever try to save. A few minutes later, I DID try to save and got this same error. I tried about 10 times and the error persisted. I figured I’d just relaunch the game and revert back to my older save, but upon launching the game and selecting load, my save isn’t listed anymore. I then closed the game again and went to check if the save was still listed on the PS5 system itself, and it was. So my save still exists, but the game refuses to load it or even recognize it’s there. 
 

And since you can’t copy PS5 saves to USB devices anymore (thanks Sony) I don’t have any backups. They really want you to pay for PS Plus for the privilege of backing up saves now. 🙄

 

Really disheartened this happened, as I was really enjoying the game. I guess I could cheat my way back using the dev console, but I’m kind of jaded now…

 

I just wanted to warn other players this might happen. No idea what caused it, like I said, but be wary and I guess subscribe to PS Plus to backup your save if you’re really paranoid. No clue if this can happen on the PS4 version either, but at least you can backup your saves to USB on that version.

 

*Edit*

Since posting this and restarting the game, I’ve had my save corrupt three more times. I did sub to PS Plus so I could at least back it up before each session, but I’ve still lost hours of progress each time it happens. Honestly, fuck this game. Don’t play it until this shit is fixed.

The PS4 version is buggy as hell too.

I guess rushing out the PS5 port was more important than working on the bugs...

The PS5 version is pretty much identical to the PS4 version. There are no enhancements as far as I can tell. It runs about the same and doesn’t look any better. Other than faster loading times due to the SSD, there’s nothing different.
 

Unfortunately that’s pretty common with these “upgraded for PS5” games…they’re just excuses to charge people for the same game twice. At least some of them are free, but not all are.

Hey Cooke , same thing happened to me on PS5 version after 9hrs playtime. It wouldn't let me save & I quit game to hopefully go back to earlier save. 

But guess what? Like you there is no save data, so have to start all over !

 D'oh .

Then same thing happened again yesterday on PS4 after 6hrs without dev shortcuts .

Sorry to hear that digwig. It’s super frustrating, I know. 


Wasn’t aware it could happen on the PS4 version…were you playing it on an actual PS4 console or using the PS5’s backwards compatibility? 

 

I know the devs are aware of this issue, but it’s only supposed to affect PS5.

Interesting! I wonder if the devs know about this…. It seems to be a bug specific to the PS5 and however it’s handling save data. 
 

I almost switched to the PS4 version to hopefully avoid this bug, but now we know that wouldn’t have made a difference. 
 

Thanks for the info.

6 crashes on the ps4.  Got seamoth stuck in walls and parts of the map that wasn't loaded yet. (due to saving often, while saving some areas don't get load fast enough.  Got my seamoth stuck in buildings the formed around me.)  You can even lose your seamoth if you accidently drive it up on land..  I think the repulsion or propulsion cannon may fix that.  Got the seamoth stuck on land.. reloaded, swam all the way back and it was under the sand inside the ground.. lol  so funny.

Didnt lose a save but game is a bit glitchy.  Back up your save OFTEN cause it may crash when you least expect it.  Great game.  I will miss it when I platinum it.  😘
