Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation will be wiped out (instead of player's save files) in an upcoming patch. Eurogamer reported on the issue earlier last month and we've been poking Ubi with pointy objects ever since to get a legit answer on what's up. Last night, the publisher got in touch.
"Our team is in the process of finalizing the first patch for Assassin's Creed 3 Liberation,"
the Ubisoft statement to us reads. "This will address the save game corruption issue that you asked about [previously]. We'll have a better idea on the timing of the patch soon."
So, if you're grabbing Liberation during some Black Friday deal, if you can keep your animus instincts in check, it may save potential heartache to wait for the patch.
