After progressing through the game at what I assumed was the normal progression, I came across a major bug.
Prior to Pledging Suthsexe, I did Essex and the other 160 power level areas. Everything went fine, pledged them as allies, yada yada. After reacuing Sigurd from Suthsexe and returning to Randvi however, nothing happens.
From what I've seen in gameplay videos, there is meant to be a decision vital to the games ending that happens involving Sigurd AFTER reporting on Essex. Since I completed Essex roughly 10 hours prior, Sigurd wasnt there, thus no decision, thus now I cant continue the story.
I'm beyond angry that I will need to replay at least 10 hours of the game to even get back to this point. I've tried fast traveling, loading and reloading the closes saves I had. All to no avail.
IF IM NOT MEANT TO PLEDGE ESSEX BEFORE SIGURD IS SAVED WHY THE [censored] DO I HAVE THE OPTION TO? Like seriously a bug like this SHOULD NOT exist. It's common [censored] sense to lock off areas that require you to complete other [censored] first.
