    If that update still doesn't have a fix for achievements, it's laughable. Let's hope it does, but since they're not mentioned, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    @vilemos Agree. I can't think of any reason why they'd not make them retroactive, unless they just want to stick it to us.

    OK and i suppose its from a suppot guy live chat too ? Ok so VERY NICE UBISOFT you really don't listen and don't care about us i suppose too in the facts. We wait and we try to be patient because some of us have only playing the first 20 hours of the game for the most part because we have no ETA and no information about retroactivity. iTS GONNA BE 20 DAYS i mean come on, don't say your working on it for droping a patch without it ! For me its a [censored] disgrace to pc players and i suppose we can't play the game until january or longer (still hoping you see) its mean personnally i will not be able to enjoying the game even during christmas holydays or week ends me or many others people too only console players can enjoying. I still dont unsterdand we all buy a game we can't play at for this reason and nothing from you except "illusions".

    What bothers me most that we didn't hear from @Ubi-Baron or @Ubi-Woofer for more than a week now... don't know what happened there.
    The update sure looks massive and will hopefully fix a lot of issues and there are some very good fixes in it.

    But how much longer does the PC-Community have to wait to enjoy the game as it was meant to be? (the achievements were promised :/)

    Either they are not mentioned in the notes and we suddenly get them anyway today, or I just don't know what to say anymore 😞

    If it's true and the update doesn't have achievements, someone should definitely write to that PC gamer journalist https://www.pcgamer.com/ubisoft-is-dropping-achievements-from-its-launcher-beginning-with-assassins-creed-valhalla/ because Ubisoft blatantly lied to him (and us). They probably saw the backlash the first time around and quickly reacted, in words but not actions. Hopefully the huge Reddit thread gets revived as well.

    Are you kidding me?! I patched the game a few minutes ago and there are still no achievements! I'm lost for words. More than 15 days have passed since the release, it has been over a week since an Ubisoft employee officially commented on our questions in this thread. That really can't be true. And why is it not answered whether the achievement can be unlocked afterwards ?! For this reason, like many others, i have not yet started the game! We finally want to have an official answer to our question!!!
