UNSOLVED Graphics bug PC Shadows Eivor's Face0 Likes/3 Replies/20 Views
I've noticed that after the latest patch, shadows show up low rez and aliased on Eivor's face. However, if you go into photo mode, the shadows appear normal. I've tried multiple driver versions for my RTX 3080 ti to rule out the GPU driver. This is defiantly a bug within the game. It seems like with every patch, new bugs are introduced. Fix one bug, create five more. I've attached screenshots of the issue. You can see the stair-stepping of the shadows on Eivor's face. In photo-mode, the shadows on his face look normal. What's going on Ubisoft? Will this be fixed? For some reason, even though the photos I tried to attach are smaller than 2MB, I kept getting an error "Something went wrong while parsing the server response" Seems like Ubisoft can't get anything to work right. Here's a link to the high rez screenshots. https://photos.app.goo.gl/uPyy3W3sCbgMzmMy9

@geminixnet I have the game on my PS5 as well. I'm going to redownload it and see if the bug is present on PS5 or if it's just a PC issue. Not sure about XBox Series S/X since I do not have one. I do have a XBox One X but not willing to purchase the game to run a test.
I can confirm the same graphical bug exists on PS5. I've added screenshots AC:Valhalla running on PS5 with the same bug. The shadows on the face are low resolution and extremally aliased. If you go into photo-mode, the shadows on the face appear normal. Also during loading screens, the shadows are normal, as well as cutscenes. Well, I'll not be playing AC:Valhalla until Ubisoft fixes this. It just looks so bad when you have major stair-stepping on the shadows across Eivor's face. Considering it took Ubisoft two months just to fix the bug where there were no sound from the horses hoofs, I'm sure I'll be waiting for a bit. I really don't get how something as obvious like this gets through QA. It's the same with the horses hoof sounds. How did that get past QA? It seems they are more concerned with pushing out their "events" than to actually take time to verify they are not introducing more bugs.
