Palace Edition is a waste

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

I dont feel like like anyone playtested this game. Ive had to constantly restart the single player to the point I no longer want to finish the story mode because if I take a break all my progress is reset and ea has done nothing about it. 3 extra days wasted and down the drain. The way all the palace cars are locked feels like a scam because they honestly think after you finish a week you would have enough money to buy or even want to buy the unlocked cars that arent as fast as the ones youve already upgraded to win a races youve been in, and  didn’t decide to say anything on the pre order page. Even MP is broken and you can’t customize your character to even put on the clothes you paid real money for or change any aspects of your character. Tried to refund but playstation says I cant since I streamed it on day one.

[PC] online progress is not saved

★★★ Novice

After playing some hours online and closing the game (no issues, error messages or something like that) all my progress was reset, when I tried to play the game, one day later.

I had to choose a new character, car and started with no already unlocked items and cars in my progress list.

After setting all up, and playoimng some time again, I turned off the game, waited some tiome, started again and again: everything was reset.

look. there is no one drive or google drive syncing my document folder. the Need For Speed(TM) Unbound has all the folders but the save folder itself does not have any files in there.. there is no save file. i played for freaking 14 hours.. i reinstalled everything. the application, the game, even freaking reinstalled windows 11 fresh. nothing else was installed. i started the story over 5 times. i thought maybe i did not progress far enough for a save which is stupid. but hey so i played as much as i could before work. got 3 cars, right before the last day in first week. and when i get off work it tells me to start a story because the game will not save. im am so upset at this problem wasted 14 hours of gameplay that i will never get back because your game is broken. it will not save. there is no save file no matter what i do, stop telling me to reinstall, and asking if  One Drive or Google drive syncing your document folder is the problem it is not the problem why is a fresh copy of windows with a fresh copy of the ea app and a fresh download of the game, its the game.

Hey i solved the problem with the game not saving on PC . Tell your developers that they make the Need For Speed(TM) Unbound folder in your documents read-only. If you remove the read only check in the properties it will now save properly. This problem wasted 14 hours of game play. but for some reason the game will force that folder into read only and it will not allow the game to save. so please fix this problem so i can finally play and not have my save reset over and over

[PC] All save files lost?

★★★★★ Newbie

Hello, I was playing tonight with my friend who is on PS4 and when I went to join his lobby, my game froze so I force closed it with Task Manager. Then when I booted up my game again to have a fun time racing with my friend all my characters [single player AND multiplayer] were gone. When I select story mode or online it brings me to the "model select" screen as if I had just installed the game again.


Ive tried restarting my PC and launched the game through Steam and Origin but nothing worked. Im really sad as i just dropped 40k into a car and wanted to show my friend Frown


14 hours lost please help!
