    Recently I finally jumped into river raids only to find out it's completely unplayable, and why? Because of the numerous f'ing game crashes on PC. Here I am just about to attack my 3rd target, boom.. game closes itself down. I restart the game and I find myself back in Raventhorpe with my river raid progress wiped.

    You'd say that's bad luck why not try again? Because if I got a euro for every single crash I got in AC Valhalla alone (not to mention the previous games) you'd be paying me to play the entire franchise for free. And yes, my PC meets the requirements (ryzen 5 2600, nvidia 3080) and no, all the dumb suggestions at the "Troubleshooting technical issues on PC" page don't work.

    There's a topic on the forums about PC crashes asking to provide a bunch of files, but why would we bother? That topic has close to 80 pages of replies spread over an 11 month period and nothing gets fixed. Why? Several reasons:

    • This problem has existed for several years throughout various AC games, nothing has been fixed, ever.
    • You use Denuvo which negatively impacts game performance and stability. The internet is littered with sample cases of how [censored] the impact of Denuvo is on games
    • There's no motivation to fix anything because your CEO hates PC gamers, believes 95% of them are pirates and will never take them seriously, here's a source to that statement.


    So, since we're never ever going to get a fix to the many PC crashes, can we then at least have a bandaid? Please add an option where river raid progress gets saved and is picked up again if the game is restarted. Thank you.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
