Elden Ring may cause issues with Steam Cloud

PC GamersElden Ring may have a problem with their backups. The system Steam Cloud would not register this data correctly, and one can only too well imagine the reaction of an unhappy/-discovering that his progress has flown into nothingness.

It’s supposed to be the platform that offers the most comfortable gaming experience, provided of course that you have an appropriate and even optimal configuration. The PC has thus welcomed, at the same time as the latest PlayStation and Xbox, the sacrosanct Elden Ring, with the expectation of a more or less marked difference with the other media. The less optimistic rather prayed for a finish at least equal to those of the console versions.

Among these points of divergence, there is one relating to the Steam Cloud, this synchronization system allowing you to keep your backups on the cloud. The problem would be such that Bandai Namco has been made aware of it and now warns of the risks of using the Steam Cloud to Elden Ring.

Elden Ring and Steam Cloud: Bandai Namco recommends another shelter for local saves

The players ofElden Ring encountering a save issue with Steam Cloud are notified as soon as the game is launched, with an error message informing them of a conflict between the local save files and those stored on Steam Cloud. People in such a case are invited to note the day and date of each backup update, so that they can select the desired one for synchronization.

Bandai Namco also recommends backing up local data to another folder, in case the user accidentally overwrites these backups with old ones kept by Steam Cloud. In its FAQ, Steam lists the default cloud data directories for games:

Windows: C:Program Files (x86)Steamuserdata
macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/userdata
Linux: ~/.local/share/Steam/userdata

Bandai Namco wants to be reassuring in any case by indicating that the problem is currently being resolved. And for those who have not yet embarked on the adventure, they still have time to think about it.
