Work-around will require you to completely remove game data and reinstall
Some players have been getting the message ”Game Data is corrupt. Please delete FC3 game data,” while playing Far Cry 4 on Sony’s last gen console. Ubisoft has now figured out how to get rid of the message, which according to the developer is only affecting users who downloaded the game. Rather painfully however, the fix will require you to completely delete the game and save data before reinstalling.
Here are the steps you need to take to get rid of the corruption issue.
- Navigate to the ‘Game’ option from the XMB
- Highlight the installed version of the game and press the triangle button
- Select ‘Delete’ and confirm the prompt
- While still in the ‘Game’ option, select ‘Saved Data Utility (PS3)’
- If a Far Cry 4 save file exists, highlight it and press the triangle button
- Select ‘Delete’ and confirm the prompt to remove the save file
- Repeat this step for all Far Cry 4 save files in the folder
- While still in the ‘Game’ option, select ‘Game Data Utility’
- Highlight the Far Cry 4 game data and press the triangle button
- Select ‘Delete’ and confirm the prompt to remove the game data
If you have Far Cry 3 or Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon saved files there is no need to delete them as well
There’s no need to delete any Far Cry 3 or Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon files. Once you’ve followed the instructions above, you’ll need to head back to the PlayStation Store and download Far Cry 4 again.
