Dragon's Dogma title update corrupting saves, Capcom counsels user backups

A recent patch to Dragon's Dogma, Capcom's fantasy themed role-playing game, is corrupting save files, and Capcom urged players to back up their data in a post on Capcom-Unity today.

The corruption stems from a recent title update and affects both Dragon's Dogma and the recently released Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen expansion.

"To prevent the possibility of permanent loss of your data," Capcom's community liaison GregaMan wrote, "please copy your existing save data (whether it be [Dragon's Dogma] or [Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen) to an external storage device or cloud whenever possible — especially if you are picking up the game for the first time in awhile or switching over to Dark Arisen for the first time."

GregaMan also suggests playing the game offline as the company investigates the bug, for which it hopes "to have a solution as quickly as possible."
