Save files not loading in Outer Worlds on the Epic Games store is a problem that’s plaguing everybody that played the game recently, after the Peril on Gorgon DLC accidentally got released for everyone early. Every Outer Worlds save that has been made during this period now refuses to load. Naturally, people are wondering why their save files won’t load in Outer Worlds, and how they can fix the issue. That being the case, we’ll share what we know with you in our Outer Worlds Can’t Load Save Files – Epic Games guide.
Save Files Won’t Load in Outer Worlds on Epic Games Store – How to Fix
Unfortunately, there’s no way to fix the issue where Outer Worlds save files can’t load on Epic Games; at least, not at the time of writing. We, however, do have a pretty good idea what happened. The Epic Games Store rolled out the patch with the Peril on Gorgon DLC early. Moreover, they released it to everyone, even people that haven’t purchased the expansion. A huge oversight, to be sure, so they rolled the whole thing back. So far, so good.
The problem is that the rollback bricked every single save that was made during the brief time that the DLC was available. It doesn’t matter whether you went to Gorgon or not, that save is (currently) gone. I’ve heard mention that all Outer Worlds save files have been jeopardized, not just those made during Peril on Gorgon-gate; I can’t confirm those reports, though. Either way, the situation is pretty grim.
To make things even worse, there hasn’t been any word from Epic, or Obsidian, or anybody regarding the fiasco. One can safely assume that they’ve heard the outcry, but they haven’t announced any solutions. Hopefully, they’re working on a fix as we speak. The only thing you can do is hope to goodness that they can restore your save. If you have managed to jury-rig some kind of solution of your own, please, share with us and other readers in the comments.
