    so what you are saying is despite the development team releasing several large game patches and numerous in game events since this was first reported in November, they have not got around to fixing game breaking bugs that effects a select number of customers. Awesome. I am deleting this game and done with buying products from Ubisoft.

    I'm sorry to hear that you feel this way, @Gr8ful_Deed. Please be assured that the development team are investigating "The Big Finish," and the issues that have been reported in relation to this quest further. I understand that it was not the response you were hoping for. Once we have any more new information to share from the investigations, it will be posted within this thread or in the News & Announcements forum.

    If you haven't already checked out the recent Dev Blog, I would recommend doing so as this gives more insight into the development process and how investigations are carried out.

    Thank you 🙂

    @gr8ful_deed on top of that expansion dlc 1 is coming out so even a bigger screw us for waiting for a fix i suggest asking for money back or class action lawsuits at this point or delete the game and forget ubisoft exists just add the feature to restart mission that would fix the issue your older games did it why remove it? just add it back so we can move on

    Hello @bronx516,

    We had raised feedback regarding a reset / restart quest option to the developers before, however it has been confirmed that such an option will not be implemented in the future. Here is what was said:

    Due to the structure of quests within the game, a "reset/restart quest" feature is not feasible at this stage of development. While some quests and world events allow you to walk away or reload your save in order to reset them, this is not the case for every instance within Valhalla. We strongly recommend regularly adding manual saves, especially before and after pivotal moments, to ensure you have backup states to revert to if needed.

    Please rest assured that the issues with The Big Finish that this megathread concerns remains under investigation and we'll share news as soon as possible. If you have any additional feedback to share, or any concerns or questions, you're welcome to send that our way for us to look at with you.

    Finally, regarding your mention of a legal dispute - we are unable to advise with regard to these, and must ask that you contact your legal representative in all matters such as this. They will be able to advise and reach out to the right people within Ubisoft if that is your wish.

    Thank you.

    @fastsmitty I don't want to believe this, I know that the end of this is really important regarding the lore and I don't want to miss it (also don't want to spoil myself).

    @Ubi-Borealis Thank you for the news!

    I work as QA, look for a link between getting all the wealth (specifically the last one in the deer/elk cave) before starting the fight with the builder. I encountered this bug exactly as described - cut scene after the fight not triggering, being stuck in the barrier.

    Players, if you have a save to before you looted the last treasure chest in that room - use that save and leave the treasure for after the fight. Fight the builder again, then cut scene may trigger correctly for you. It did for me.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us, @SBNina. I'm glad to hear you've been able to progress in "The Big Finish."

    If players are able to reload an earlier save, I'd recommend giving this workaround a try. If you're unable to reload a previous save, I would like to assure you all that the development team intend to resolve all of the issues encountered during "The Big Finish" in a future update. We don't yet have a confirmed ETA for when this update will be released. Once we have more information, it will be shared within this thread and in the News & Announcements forum.

    Thanks! 😊

    Its been half a year and I still cant progress "The Big Finish" questline in Asgard. I defeated the Builder boss and the cutscene thats supposed to occur afterwards never started. I see only the corpse of the builder and if i go near it, it disappears. The tower is also blocked by invisible walls that i can only glitch through dismounting my mount to get inside the tower and mounting my mount to get outside of the tower. Seriously. Its been 6 months, you released the first DLC already and you STILL havent fixed this?

    I had the same issue and waited for a fix. A couple of minutes ago decided to play and go to Asgard. Soon as I get there there is a cutscene unlike before where it said defeat the builder (defeated him already). Looks like it was fixed. I will do a manual save just in case. Mission now: use the gate to jotunheim. Also I have done the mission, gate to jotunheim weeks ago but the next day I played and went to Asgard that's where defeat the builder issue started for me.

    Hello there @Hallowmont & @Boxcarwill32 ! Welcome to the forums 🙂

    I'm sorry to hear that you've encountered trouble in "The Big Finish" after defeating the Builder. Thank you for taking the time to share your report with us. The development team have been investigating this issue further, and are planning to deploy a fix in a future update. We don't yet have a confirmed ETA for when this update will be released.

    @Boxcarwill32 - Thank you for sharing your experience with "The Big Finish." After triggering that new cutscene, have you been able to progress further with the Asgard and Jotunheim questlines? If so, please can you provide us with an update.

    Thank you 😊

    Hi,

    Yes I was able to use the gate to jotunheim and then back to asgard to bound the wolf. Looks like this was the end of the game (no scrolling credits though). I also saved often this time just in case. Hope this info helps.

    Thanks for confirming that for me, @Boxcarwill32. I'm glad to hear that you've been able to successfully complete the Asgard arc. Thank you for sharing your experience with us 🙂

    @boxcarwill32 nothing happened for me, though i found a new friend:

    That's certainly a strange occurrence, @Hallowmont! I know Asgard is full of magic, but this is some odd witchcraft at play. Would you be able to open a new thread about this issue so we can take a closer look at what could be causing this to happen to your mount? That way, we can avoid going off-topic within this thread.

    Thanks! 😊
