    @xxadamanxx1 Hello! I'm sorry to hear about this. Can you please try rebuilding your PS5's database? You can find the steps for that process here. It acts like a computer disk defragmenter and will not affect your save data, so it would be great to try to see if that helps get this corrected. If it doesn't, would you be able to grab some video evidence exhibiting the problem? I would be glad to get it reported!

    @ubikoality Hello, I’m having exactly the same problem in PS4. It happened me after completing Lestershire quests and going to talk back to Randvi. I tried to rebuild the database, but it didn’t work, I also tried to load other games but it always gets the bug in the same moment after talking with Randvi.

    I just created the barracks and I'm unable to interact with my quartermaster. This is very lame. I've found many minor bugs already, but this one is a pretty bad one.

    Hi everyone, and apologies for the delay. For those of you that are unable to interact with Settlement NPCs following the release of TU 1.1.2, please provide the following information:

    • What platform(s) are you playing on?
    • Which NPCs are not speaking with Eivor?
    • Does creating a manual save, exiting the game completely, then launching the newly created save have any impact on this issue?


    @NChamp2014 Can you send us a video link of the black screen issue you mentioned above, which lasts about 5-10 seconds upon launch please?

    I never had this issue until yesterday. When I got back from a River Raid, I could not longer interact with anyone other than the Jomsvikings waiting to be recruited, and Petra. Today, when I loaded it up, things were back to normal. Completed another raid, same problem.

    I'm on PS4, 400 rank, settlement complete.

    I don't know if it's related, but I did have at least one of my crew members die on each of the raids.

    @UbiExcellent

    I have made manual save, quick save to, from cloud, fomr local and the problem is still there.

    My game has bugged in a way that has stopped me from talking to ALL the npcs in my settlement. It happens after the first conversation with Eivor, Ceolbert and Ranvi which starts automatically when you enter the map room. I have loaded save states before this happens and every single time the conversation finishes I can no longer speak to anybody, including Randvi which means I cannot progress further in the story. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game twice, once before the bug occurs and once after and the same problem persists. This has broken my game and made it completely unfinishable. I cant even access the asgard quests anymore. I've tried several things to try and get round this but nothing works. Please help or even better fix the game so I can keep playing it.

    I think they do not care about stuck players. You have the proof .( my post has not answer)
    The game has already been sold a lot, and Ubisoft ignore all issues that are blocking players.
    This is the last game from UBISOFT i purchase.
    Ubisoft are worst than CD Project Red , at least they try to fix.

    Here I post a video were you can see the situation when I speak to Randvi after completing Leicestershire quests. The video is in spanish but hope it shows clear enough.

    @ubiexcellent

    I am on PS4.

    I cannot speak with any settlement NPCs, other than the new one, Vagn.
    For example, one of my quests calls me to talk to Dag, who stands non-responsive by the longhouse.
    (There are also several NPCs just standing idly in a clearing between the brewery and the river raid dock)

    Saving and restarting has no apparent effect.

    Hello all!

    Thanks for continuing to update this thread. I'm sorry to hear that some of you are still unable to interact with settlement NPCs following TU 1.1.2. If you are still affected by this, please can you let us know the following information:

    • Which NPCs are you unable to interact with?
    • When did you first notice you were unable to interact with them?
    • Can you please send us a video that shows you're unable to interact with the settlement NPCs?


    We can then pass this information along to the development team for further investigation.

    @ElMadre1, @Wood138 & @Fullmetallspark - Thank you for taking the time to share your reports. Would you be able to provide us with the additional information above? In particular, a video would be very helpful for the investigation.

    @MrWhiskers573 - Thanks for taking the time to send us a video. I've passed this report along to the development team so they can take a closer look at this.

    Thanks all! 😊

    1. again, I can interact with none of the settlement NPCs save the new one, Vagn.
    2. the game has been unplayable for me for months now, so when it happened is tough. The last milestone I recall was a fight with Dag, who now stands unresponsive outside the longhouse.
    3. provide instructions on how to capture and provide video, and I would be willing to do so, but I question what you hope such material will help you learn. How do you expect such a video — a player character being looked at but otherwise ignored by NPCs, even if that PC goes so far as to repeatedly bump into the NPCs — to help?

    Playing on the PS5 version. I completed the alliance map for Grantebridgescire and it breaks the game upon talking to Randvi when I get back to my settlement. I'm unable to interact with any of my npc's there including her. I can't choose the alliance map to advance the story or even go back to Asgard. This is a major issue for a lot of people that's been going on for almost 4 months now and there's no fix in sight. I've honestly wasted my time and money on this game.

    Hello there!

    @Hadley66 - Thanks for letting me know that additional information about which NPCs you're unable to interact with, and when this first happened for you. To share a video, I would recommend recording it and then uploading it to a sharing platform (such as YouTube or Google Drive), then posting a shareable link in this thread. Depending on the platform you use, you may have different recording options available to your (Such as PS4 share or recording using the Microsoft Game Bar). You can also use your own capture devices, such as cameras or mobile phones.

    Videos are helpful to the investigation as it allows the development team to see exactly how your game has been affected, and see if this behaviour matches other reports. It's also useful if the development team has been unable to replicate this in their own testing to provide a better understanding from the player's point of view.

    @ryanp82 - Thanks for sharing your experience with being unable to interact with your settlement NPCs. I'm sorry to hear that this has halted your progression. Have you been able to try reloading an earlier save to test if this always happens when completing the Grantebridgescire alliance? Knowing that this is the trigger could be very helpful for the investigation.

    If possible, would you also be able to provide a video that shows you unable to interact with NPCs after reporting to Randvi? We can then pass this along to the development team.

    Thanks all! 😊

    Here's the requested video.

    .

    (During its recording, I realized I could interact with the settlement's dice player and the jomsviking for hire near the barracks, in addition to Vagn. Otherwise, I cannot interact with any person in Ravensthorpe.)

    @Ubi-Borealis

    I am in the same situation .
    No point to share vidéo, my issue IS same as Hadley66.
    The game is unplayable because now it s impossible to talk to randvi or anyone else.
    This issue must be reported as major issue.
    We can not play the game.

    @hadley66 I greatly appreciate you posting this video clip here, and have made sure our investigating teams are able to review this further.

    @Wood138 Thank you for confirming that you are in the exact same situation as Hadley66. While no additional updates have been shared with us yet, we will continue to post new information here as it is made available.

    Several months after it was allegedly fixed I still have the issue. I cant talk to anybody in the settlement rendering the game entirely useless as I need to talk to them to get new quests. Im currently after the Soma storyline and just before going to Asgard (I had to look up parts of the story before I could play them -.-).
    I paid good money for it and its not like the first week after release. I wholeheartedly wish all the worst to this company if they dont start making their games at least playable. Thats just theft.
