Aliens Fireteam Elite has released and a lot of fans of the shooting and gore would be delighted. It’s the best game you can play while you are waiting for B4B to release. However, some users are reporting that they are able to create a save, but when they attempt to load the save it crashes. The Aliens Fireteam Elite save crashing on load is a very serious issue because it compromises any progress you’ve made in the game.

Fortunately, there is a simple workaround for the problem and it’s one of the first known issues with the game. As it appears, users who have special characters in their Steam Profile names have this problem.

If there is a special character in your Steam Name, the save may crash for you. The workaround for the problem is simple, rename the Steam Profile and create a new save for the game and hopefully, it does not crash this time.

It’s a weird problem, but it’s not the first time we have encountered this with a game. For some reason having special characters in the Steam Profile does not go well with some games. Changing the Steam profile may be irritating for some users, but it’s the only solution you have at the time. Either this or you choose to play when the developers have resolved the problem and released the fix. Remove anything in your Steam Profile that is not a number or a letter.

The good news is the developers are aware of Aliens Fireteam Elite Save Crashing on Load and it’s one of the first listed problems with the game.

Aside from that, the first 15 minutes of gameplay looks really amazing and hopefully, there aren’t any major bugs later in the game. Check out the game category for more informative guides and tips to play the game.
