It seems that Watch Dogs didn’t get the perfect release that every gamer had hoped for. Instead, on the official forums, a very scary Watch Dogs bug has been announced, a game breaking bug that has players lose all their in-game progression, weapons, outfits and unlocked skills. Really scary.
Posting on the forums on the Xbox One section of the game, one user wrote:
“Got discovered and killed while tailing someone, respawned in free roam, all my weapons were gone, outfit was default, and all my skills (crafting and such that I had unlocked to date) were still unlocked in the skill tree, but I could not use them.”
The player was already level 25 when this happened, so you can imagine that it’s pretty bad. Fortunately, Ubisoft were quick to ask for more details and hopefully they will have a fix for this soon, especially because cleaning the game’s cache or loading a save file doesn’t fix it.
So far, this Watch Dogs bug that sees you lose all your progression has only been reported on PCs and Xbox One, so apparently the other platforms are safe. Or players didn’t run into something similar yet.
What about you? Did you encounter this problem? And if you did, most important – were you able to fix it somehow?
