PSA: Forza Horizon 3 Update Bug on PC Can Wipe Your Save Game

Forza Horizon 3 players on PC should be careful today, as an issue with a new update can corrupt your save file.

That’s according to the game’s developer, Playground Games, which has been tracking the issue throughout the day on its forums. Initially, the problem was simply a matter of being asked to re-download the full game. That’s problematic in its own right–the game is over 50 GB, presenting a headache for those with data caps and/or slow download speeds. More concerning is what cropped up later: corrupted save games.

“PC players who completed the download of .37.2 and then started a new game save will have a corrupted saved game,” the post states. “Avoid creating a new saved game on .37.2, and only play on .35.2 to avoid this issue. As long as you have an existing save and have not created a new one on .37.2, your saved game will work correctly once the update is available.”

The post goes on to say the broken update has been removed. If you’re running the .37.2 version of the game, you “should immediately uninstall that version of the game, then re-install.” The version ending .35.2 is the one you want to be on. You can see this number in the bottom-left corner of the launch screen, as pictured below.

It’s unclear if corrupted PC saves will also impact files on Xbox One; Horizon 3 features cross-save support between the two platforms. In any event, you should double-check your game version even if you haven’t opened the Windows Store, as it’s possible it was downloaded automatically.

Following Nintendo’s announcement of Switch, both SEGA and Atlus confirmed plans to support the console. Last year, SEGA announced that an “epic” title from Sonic Colors and Generations team is headed to the platform in 2017.

Advance Wars-Style Game From Starbound Dev Shown Off in New Screenshot

Starbound developer Chucklefish Games has again shown off a game it’s discussed previously but still not officially announced. The untitled project has been described by Chucklefish CEO and designer Finn Brice as “Advance Wars meets Fire Emblem.”

That’s immediately a very tantalizing prospect, as Intelligent Systems–developer of both the Advance Wars and Fire Emblem series–has done little with the former in recent years. Brice first shared an early image and described the project as one the studio was “considering” last August. Four months later, it appears to still be moving ahead.

Brice today tweeted (via PC Gamer), “Chucklefish is working on two new games and will continue to support Starbound. Details on the next big Starbound patch not far away.” This came shortly after he sent out a tweet that reads, “Chucklefish back to work!” along with the screenshot of the new game above.

This followed a short video from last month that showed a level being designed and units moving around a map. The similarities to Advance Wars are obvious.

Without any official announcement, we don’t yet know when we might be able to get our hands on this. When he tweeted about it in August, Brice said it was intended for release on PC and would feature online multiplayer. We’ll report back as more about the game is shared.
