This problem arises when your local file is not synchronized with the servers—that’s why it mostly appears when trying to play multiplayer. Files can’t be loaded, preventing you from playing the game.

There is no official fix for this yet, but there is a temporary solution for it. You must follow these steps:

  1. Open the NFS Unbound folder in your File Manager;
    • It’s usually in this path: C:\Users\YourUserName\Documents\Need For Speed(TM) Unbound\SaveGame\
  2. Create a new folder in a different location;
  3. Copy every file in your Game Folder to the new folder;
  4. Delete the contents of the original folder from the NFS Unbound folder;
    • Do not delete the whole folder
  5. Launch the game;
  6. Create a newly-saved game file;
  7. Quit the game;
  8. Move the contents of the new folder back to the original folder;
  9. Return to “SaveGame” and replace the new save file with the old one, whose name is “1.”
