The recent release of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne on PC had a difficult birth. PC players were excited to load up the massive expansion for Capcom’s best-selling game. They were treated to lost save-files, instead.
Thankfully, Capcom declared they were “aware of the problem” and that they were “currently investigating” the issues raised. PC players will be thankful to know that a patch is soon to be released.
This should rectify all associated problems.
The list of problems varied from the aforementioned lost save files to drop of framerates and other performance issues. Following the release of the upcoming patch, these problems should be remedied.
Capcom took to Steam to reveal they have uncovered an issue that had resulted in an “unusually high level of CPU utilisation during active gameplay”. Capcom also confirmed the issue arrived from save data not converting to the new file format if the user had not updated their game after 30th October.
Capcom does have a quick fix for the problem for anyone who has been affected by the save file issues. Users should shut their game down when the following message appears;
“Failed to read saved data for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.
Create new save data?
Yes / No”
With any luck, that is the last time this problem affects players. As mentioned before, the patch should be available within the next few days.
