For those that don't frequent the Dying Light board:

Many players are experiencing a bug that seems to come from out of nowhere. They load the game up, and while their story progression is the same, their xp progression, skills, levels, weapons, money, and inventory are all deleted - even essential items that you can't get back.

Basically it's a full character wipe. No one can really pinpoint what causes it. The developers say it's caused by quitting while the game is saving or during a loading screen, but players state that they aren't doing that and it still corrupts their save. Besides, there's no autosave icon, so who knows when it's saving or not...

Just thought you guys should know... be extra careful if you're playing Dying Light.

(Note: posted on the Xbox One board because game-breaking bugs are essentially part of the Xbox lifestyle now)

Even when you pause, go to Quit Game, wait until the main menu pops up, then quit, it still happens.

At least, from what I've read.

Every game has issues, but when they mess up a simple thing that even cursory QA should have found... that's when I shake my head.

Yeesh, thats extreme. Fh2 you just had to pause it and wait a few seconds to be safe.

I've even read about it happening mid-game when your co-op partner leaves :/

Huh. Same bug was in Dead Island. These guys apparently can't learn from mistakes.

Yeah, i remember every one of my characters in the original being corrupted in the first game. I'll probably hold off on buying until it gets fixed if the bug is widespread.

No problem.

All you can really do is make sure there's nothing going on when you're quitting, and quit from the pause menu... and tell your co-op partners not to leave or get disconnected if there's stuff happening lol
