LEGO 2K Drive is already out for those who spent the extra money buying the Awesome Edition of the game. This version gives you three extra days to play the new open-world brick racer before its actual launch tomorrow, 19 May.
However, while the early access has been fun for some players, it seems it might have been a waste of money. Users who have amassed a good amount of in-game time playing LEGO 2K Drive are now facing their save data being erased from existence.

The issue seems to stem from players who have been enjoying LEGO 2K Drive offline since early access kicked off and now that the servers for the game have been switched on, their progress isn’t transferring over. In fact, instead of keeping save files separate for the online and offline modes, LEGO 2K Drive is deleting them completely.
Users report that the game servers aren’t syncing their save data correctly. When playing offline and connecting to the server, for some reason, the game server overwrites their local save data with the last cloud backup.
This means if you play offline for five hours and don’t realise you’re offline when you try and connect to the game servers, the game will then overwrite your latest save file with the cloud save. This save was, of course, created five hours ago,
Users also report that when you’re playing LEGO 2K Drive online and put your PS5 into rest mode, the game loses connection to the server. Users need to make sure that whatever happens, they reconnect to the servers. That way they don’t lose progress.
2K Games claims it is aware of the save data issues facing LEGO 2K Drive. Over on Reddit, users posted their frustration claiming to be losing hours upon hours of game time. This wipe clears game progress and money earned.
If you are playing LEGO 2K Drive early, be sure to always remain connected to the servers so you also don’t have the same problem.
LEGO 2K Drive is out tomorrow on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch and PC. Watch the latest trailer below.
