Tyranny of King Washington Warning

2 posts in this topic

Shortly after completing the first Tyranny of King Washington mission, I entered a loading screen that never ended, and after waiting 6 minutes, I closed the application, to find that all of my save data, for *every* game on the system, had been corrupted, without being able to bring it back from cloud storage.

 

Miraculously, about an hour later, the save data somehow came back. But as a warning for anyone wanting to play the DLC, you may lose everything.

It's actually not specifically that game. Assassins Creed III Remastered's DLC works fine for most people.

 

You just happened to encounter a hard freeze on that game because you where playing it and life happens. I've had my PS4 freeze up in games on probably a DOZEN occasions over the following year since installing a 2TB Seagate HDD! Worse: each time I was forced to 'hard shutdown' the PS4. Every single time I did this, either photos, saves or game install data was randomly corrupted. Often requiring me to delete the game and reinstall it. When the saves where lost, I winched in pain and got frustrated, but ultimately had to suck it up and live with it.

 

I've especially lost ALOT of save games because of the PS4 freezing and not shutting down properly.

 

It's a horrible flaw in Sony's design of the PS4/Pro (most likely a result of the Jaguars limited CPU power when handling a lot of background processes while gaming) - made worse in my case by the new hard drive. Some people never have issues like these, and others have lots and lots of issues with PS4 freezing and improper forced shutdowns corrupting data. But it's not nearly as rare as you'd think, and it's not a result of this game you're playing. It could have happened with literally any game you where playing eventually - it just happened to finally happen this day, with that game. It just seems like it's ACIII because it's probably never happened to any other game you own until now.
