We have had reports of players specifically from the Czech and Chinese regions, having issues loading save files that were created before the Mortal Empires release.
Our QA team are aware of this issue and are currently working on the issue.
In the meantime a work around is to change the language of your game through steam, which will allow you to load your save files.
If you're running with Czech and Chinese languages please follow these steps:
1. Open Steam
2. Right Click Warhammer 2
3. Go Properties then Languages
4. Select a Language apart from Czech or Chinese e.g. English
5. Once this is complete you should be able to load up your save files in game
We hope this can allow players the ability to continue their games until we have fixed this issue.
