    I just updated the game to the newest patch and since then I keep getting "New Quest" alerts when I loot things (barrels, bags, vases seem to be the main culprits; does not occur with chests), interact with objects (readables, doors), or collect items (maps, keys, opals/titanium). I check my quest log but nothing new has actually been added. I'm currently playing Siege of Paris, so I don't know if this is isolated to just this region. It's mildly irritating when looting multiple objects and the notification and sound occur for every single item.
    The video shows this happening with doors.

    Hello there!

    I apologise for the delayed update. I'm happy to confirm that a fix for the constant "New Quests" notifications was deployed in TU 1.4.0, which was released 9 November, 2021. This issue should now be resolved.

    If you are still experiencing persistent notifications following this Title Update, please can you provide us with a video that shows the following:

    • You have the latest Title Update installed on your platform. You can check this in the lower right-hand corner of the main game menu.
    • You are still receiving constant "New Quests" notifications in-game following the release of TU 1.4.0.


    I'd recommend uploading the video to a sharing platform, such as YouTube or Google Drive, as this will allow you to post a shareable link within this thread for us to take a closer look at.

    Thanks! 😊

    @brotinn It's not unique to that region - I'm in Cent right now getting the same thing. For me, at least, it's always a revenge quest that's popping up as a notification even though I do not have any current revenge quests. I'm able to save and restart to get rid of it, but it's very annoying.

    Hey,

    Thanks for reporting this, both of you. I'll create a report and forward your video on @Brotinn. I've also got your save files downloaded to send them too, so we'll let you know if they need any further information.

    @ubi-froggard It also seems to stop if I find and complete the nearest revenge quest.

    Same-ish here; as of TU 1.3.1 so far when I get an avenge quest in my vicinity, the notification for said quest reappears every time I loot something, whether it be a small chest, small loot vases/jars, or even arrows, once I hit “loot” the quest pops up like it’s brand new with that “haaaa” voice. It goes away if I reload a save to get rid of the quest or follow through and complete the quest, but it could be a problem if you had one stuck during a main quest you couldn’t get to, I’ll try and video it next time it happens 👉

    @hidden1ne Thanks for throwing your name in the hat, here!

    Extra information on new issues is always welcome. If you are able to record a video if this happens again, we'll pass this on too.

    Good to know reloading a save that gets rid of the quest, or finishing the quest, might be a workaround for players having this problem.

    When collecting items like keys or opening a chest, a quest/ multiple quests accepted text appears on the left side of the screen. However, there are no new missions in the quest section. It's annoying actually. It's after the new update v1.31..Did any of you guys notice it?

    @r3x_psb I also had this problem when I played, exactly same thing happened. but the "blank" mission soon turned into player revenge mission. It kept repeating the same players name.

    After downloading the latest update, every time I loot something (when the "Loot" prompt appears), I get notifications about every quest I have started/accepted.
    While this is not a game-breaking bug, it is visual and auditory noise that is obnoxious and unnecessary.
    I am in the process of exploring the area around Ravensthorpe (very new to the game), so I do not always have a quest tracked.
    This issue did not occur when I played prior to the update.
    Restarting the program did not fix the issue.
    Reloading the save did not fix the issue.

    Running the game on PC with Win10 operating system. Can give more details as necessary.

    @artemastate Hi there!

    Merging with another thread on this topic. This issue is undergoing investigation at the moment.

    If possible, would you be able to share a short clip of this issue via a file sharing site like Google Drive or YouTube? Could you also ensure your most recent save is uploaded to the cloud?

    Thank you for the report, apologies for any frustration this may cause.

    So in the ireland dlc everytime i take some treasure or food or something the multiple quests accepted keeps popping up including that whhooeesshh sound. Gets kinda annoying. Also i can fast travel to locked trade posts, you will drop in the middle of enemies but its fast. However i dont think this should happen.

    Playing on a newish game, about 8 hours in.

    Was doing a world event - Winchell the Robefree

    After finishing the event, every time I looted something, food berries, barrels, treasure, wealth a "New Quest" accepted notification popped up. If you loot multiple things quickly, you get a "Multiple New Quests" notification instead.

    I went to Besuncen Tor and took this video following the start of this bug;



    I exited the game to title screen, loaded back up the same game and the spam had stopped until I fast traveled to Duroliponte.

    I didn't catch the following on video but this is what happened;

    • An "Avenge <user>" Quest popped up and it was auto-accepted (this was not the case prior to today as I thought this had become optional by clicking on the dead body now)
    • Immediately after that, looting barrels in Duroliponte started the "New Quest" spam again, and the Avenge quest popped up continuously while I stayed in the area until I moved far enough away.
    • Once I moved far enough away, near the "The Doom Book of Cats" event outside of Grantebridge all of the "new quest" spam stopped as well.
    • I tested more by looting lots of stuff in an around Grantebridge, no new spam
    • I also fast traveled to a different location near Isle of Ely and starting killing and looting there too and no new spam


    I imagine the Avenge quest spam will come up again and will try to capture that if possible.

    @taklishim I have same issue. Started with avenge_quest until I got outside of vicinity. Looting everything anywhere get the quest followed by delay and then loot would display content. No matter if I changed quests always get this, also when reading scrolls and such. New with 1.3.1 obviously

    I noticed yesterday I was getting this bug too. I'm not sure after which quest it started happening for me though, but it was certainly after installing the 1.3.1 patch. "New Quest" constantly pops up after different actions such as reading scrolls. However, Ubisoft connect hasn't been working for me today and has been down so I'm not sure if it's still happening.

    Tonight's the first night I've been able to play a bit since the huge patch a day or two ago. I'm starting to clear the map in Oxenfordscire. Just about every damn thing I pick up for loot (whether it's 1 silver in a barrel [1 silver, that's a joke], or supplies in a gold chest... or iron and leather) I get a pop up saying "new quest" or w/e, or "Multiple Quests accepted". I don't think i got a quest picking up one silver (that's not a made up example, that was literally the last instance that happened before I came here). And the whole time the past three hours not one single new quest popped up in my quest log. I'm on PS4

    Yeah, this is now happening to me as well. I updated to the latest patch and begun the Siege of Paris DLC. After the first few quests I kept getting spammed with “new quest.” Looting chest and other items kept triggering it as well. I would go look at the menu to see if an actual quest was there and nothing. It has just gotten annoying at this point while I’m trying to loot everything.
