    When pulling out the fishing line and jumping in the water, the hands stay the same instead of the swimming animations.

    Hello everyone,

    I am pleased to say that title update 1.1.0 (patch notes here) released today, and in it was included a fix for the missing swimming animations for fish:

    Addressed an issue where fish may lay on its side during the fishing animation.

    Following this update, it would be appreciated if we could receive confirmation that the fish now swim as intended, and also that they are visible when caught. If these issues persist, we'd like to collect short video clips demonstrating this so that we can reopen the investigation with the developers. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding, and please let me know if you have any questions, concerns or feedback! 🙂

    In my game, every time I hook a fish it never animates like it should. I just lays there like an unmoving log until I fight it in, at which point the fish never even renders in Eivor's hands. Its really disappointing because i love the fishing mechanics in the game and its a great way to pass time but with this bug I lose a lot of immersion. And its just not as fun. Any help would be much appreciated!

    I have the same issue. I also posted about ti but it got moved to the forum feedback section for some reason. 😕

    When I first started fishing I saw the fish animation, it changed after I progressed more in game. Did yours also start like that?

    Same here (PC), no fish showing after they are caught. Ever.

    Since the previous patch (and was not fixed in 1.04), fish are no longer swimming when I catch them. They also seem to be having a placeholder generic fish sometimes (e.g. a salmon looks like a grey trout, after hooking). Before catching, they are working fine, but will stop swimming and appear to be on their side until you reel them in. When catching, there is no animation, and catching big ones where you would usually be cradling the fish, you hold nothing but air, and the string seems to still run from the hand to the water.

    I can present video of the issue, just need to cut the video to size. This has been ongoing past reloads, restarts, zoning, and patching.

    When you catch large fish and it shows an animation it doesn't show up in Eivors hands it's invisible.

    I get the same as well on PS5. No animation to the fish, and if you land a "Big" fish, you see Evior cradle his hands looking at a completely invisible fish. The species distribution seems largely random too - I just caught a couple of salt-water fish (Cod) at Ravensthorpe.

    I really did enjoy the fishing in Far Cry 5, and I was hoping for the same kind of experience here. I really hope that AC:Valhalla improves in this respect.

    When I catch a fish, i can't see it when Eivor pulls it in. He just stands with his arms out empty. Playing on ps4.
