Heya, I recently got a PS5 and started playing from scratch on it, and I recently got hit by a massive glitch preventing me from doing anything in the game.
So around the time I reached Eden-6, my character save has been going completely whack, with a few things happening, with no rhyme or reason to them to even figure out what my trigger the glitch.
My save file now alternated between me being on Chapter 2, being able to progress in it, being on Chapter 7, without being able to progress in it, being on Chapter 12, being able to progress in it, or being on Chapter 13, without being able to progress in it.
I’ve managed to actually clear up to Chapter 15, but as soon as I quit the game back to the Main Menu, it’s a toss up of which of those scenarios I end up with, and every time, except when the game thinks I’m on Chapter 2, whenever I get in the game, the side quest “Head Case” repeats the starting dialogue, and becomes uncleared again, which I’ve already re-done quite a few times.
As it stands, I can’t continue the game progression, but my character hasn’t lost any levels, or any gear, it seems only quest progression is affected by this issue.
This is an incredibly bad bug, and one that stops the game dead in its tracks, and after putting in quite a few hours from doing side quests and exploring, I just don’t feel like playing everything from the start again.
The only thing I can seem to figure out from this issue, is that the save date is interacting in a weird way with the PS5 activity cards, and their ability to quickly resume the game from a certain activity, as my PS5 for my character has multiple cards for various Main Story quests active at the same time.
All of this, while in the character selection screen, it’s actually telling me that I’m at the Chapter 15 quest, which is where I actually am.
I am looking for any help with this issue, as I believe I have exhausted every possible fix on my end, such as turning off the game and starting it up again, creating a new character and swapping back, progressing with another player, both as host and as a visitor, deleting everything and installing everything again, deleting save data and re-downloading it, and honestly, I don’t know what else to do to just enjoy the game I paid for.
