Ubisoft has a thoroughly refreshing launch line-up for next-gen gaming. Games like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, Riders Republic, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and Far Cry 6 are ones to look out for. In a recent announcement, Ubisoft mentioned that its new games will have cross-gen and cross-platform saves enabled.

Ubisoft took to Twitter to announce the launch of its latest service, ‘Ubisoft Connect’.

For our newest releases, all your game progression is saved within Ubisoft Connect, so you won’t lose a step if you change consoles or switch to PC.https://t.co/NwEPW7ZUEk

Some Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion players say they are getting corrupted-save errors on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game, wiping out hours of progress, and, in some cases, forcing them to start all over.

The problem is especially severe for Watch Dogs: Legion, which maintains only a single campaign playthrough — that is, no manual saving, and no multiple game saves from earlier points. A thread on Ubisoft’s official forums for Legion has several players describing lost progress, with community managers acknowledging that developers are looking into the problem.

There seems to be no consistent trigger event for the disruption to the Watch Dogs: Legion save file. Some report that it has happened to them from the point they switched to a new team member. Others said they think cycling to another team member starts the save process.

Watch Dogs: Legion Review

One player wondered if playing the game on permadeath mode had anything to do with it. I have played a few hours of Watch Dogs: Legion on Xbox Series X since it launched, with a permadeath game save brought over from Xbox One, and had no problems. I even did the, er, save-scum thing of quitting to the dashboard when an operative was about to get killed, and had no problems starting over, completing a mission, and having the data saved from points forward.

In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which maintains more than one manual save along with autosaves, players have reported that their game save menu shows one or more saves to be “data corrupt!” and the only option is to delete it.

The problem appears to be persistent, affecting all manual saves from the point of the glitch forward. A support manager in the Ubisoft forums thread asked a player how much space they had available on their hard drive, but everyone reports plenty (more than 100 GB) of room for such data.

“Manual saves are all corrupt, auto saves are working and quick saves not showing as corrupt,” said one player last week. “So basically have to wait for an auto save before stopping play and hoping for the best.”

We reached out to a Ubisoft representative to ask what’s up, but have yet to hear back.

Ubisoft Connect enables cross-gen and cross-platform saves

Ubisoft Connect also offers a lot of other features, along with cross-gen/platform functionality. Its description on the official website reads: “Ubisoft Connect is the ecosystem of players services for Ubisoft games across all platforms. It aims at giving the best environment for all players to enjoy their games and connect with each other whatever the device. Ubisoft Connect is a free service available on all devices. You can access it on your PC, through a mobile app, or even directly from your games. All you need to login is a Ubisoft Account!”

In addition to this, it also allows players to keep a track of their game progression across platforms. Moreover, the service also enables players to stay in touch with their other Ubisoft friends on console or PC. Players can also compare their stats to their friends to keep things competitive. Additionally, it is now possible to view personal highlights of games before starting a new session.

This seems like a great step into the future, considering there will be a lot of cross-platform play involved in next-gen gaming. Being able to save progress on different platforms is definitely a huge win. Hopefully, the same may be possible for older titles soon.

I love to play games of all kinds. You can usually find me casually teaming up with my squad to play the most random games ever. Oh, and I also manage to write about those sometimes
