I am aware that many people are having availability issues with Episode 5, but i have yet to see anyone mention a problem quite like mine. Upon booting up the game, I load my save file, which takes me to a checkpoint at the end of Episode 4. if i scroll over to 5 and click play, it says: "Generate choices for skipped episode? Y/N." Naturally, I don't want to do that, so i play through the last bit of Episode 4. Afterwards, It takes me back to the main menu, and when I load the save again, it takes me to Episode 5 which now says "Coming soon" again! I restarted the game, restarted my computer, and reinstalled the entire game, but nothing I know of can fix it. Essentially, if i wanted to play Episode 5 i would have to roll the dice and hope it randomly generates all my choices correctly, which is a very slim chance. I was contemplating playing the whole thing over again, but i doubt that would help, and i wanted to bring the issue here first. On a side note, i am no longer able to see the "Who did you take with you?" stat screen, which i find strange.
Has anyone else experienced this? And if so, how did you fix it? I was so pumped to finish this season, it is absolutely torturous sit here and be completely unable to do anything because of a bug no else seems to have. Of course, Telltale could fix it in a patch, but who knows how long that could take? Anyway, if anyone is having a similar experience, or any advice on the issue, it would be much appreciated if you voiced it.
Oh, and i forgot to mention that i have the Steam version, if that makes a difference.
