Battlefield 2042 has officially launched through Early Access!

While most are jumping in and enjoying the title, there are many running into issues as well. One common issue is the Unable to Load Persistence Data error. If you’re having trouble with this, no need to worry. In this guide, I’ll tell you exactly how to fix Unable to Load Persistance Data in Battlefield 2042!
How to Fix Unable to Load Persistence Data in Battlefield 2042
First things first, it’s important to note that the servers today are in rough shape. If any of the fixes below don’t seem to work for you, then you may just have to wait out the issues and hope that it resolves itself when things have eased up. With that out of the way, onto the actual fixes.
One of the first and more obvious fixes is to restart your system. While on PC this is quite simple, consoles can be more complex than simply turning it off and on again. If you’re on a console, you’ll want to hold down the power button completely, then unplug your console and wait two minutes. After those two minutes are up, plug the console back in and start it up. This will fully refresh your console, meaning that any errors related to it should be eliminated instantly.
Another thing some have suggested (albeit only on PC) is to verify your game’s files. This can be done through Origin, the EA Desktop App, or Steam. It’s also advised you close anything that could possibly interfere (or close everything else altogether). If this doesn’t work, then you may have to bite the bullet and redownload your game. It’s possible something got corrupted beyond repair which, while unlikely, isn’t impossible.
If all of the above doesn’t work, you’ll have to simply wait it out. If it’s any silver lining, it likely isn’t you if you’ve tried all that. All in all, I hope this helped you fix the Unable to Load Persistence Data error in Battlefield 2042.
