    1.Which platform do you play on? Xbox One S

    2.Following 1.1.0, has there been any change in Aelfgar's behaviour, however slight? i.e. is he now stuck in a different spot, does he continue to talk despite being stuck, etc.? No change in behavior since 1.1.0, he is standing in the same spot on the dirt road leading to the camp, he is holding sword on his shoulder and behind his neck, he randomly looks up toward sky, then looks straight ahead. He does not talk.

    3.In terms of workarounds, have you tried forcefully moving him to the objective by pushing him with your horse? Yes, I have tried the following unsuccessful :
    -running/ bumping into him with Eivor, running into him & pushing him w/ horse- he will stumbles a little in place but not really move.
    -shot w/ multiple arrows head, face, chest, abdomen, back, arms, legs (used predator & hunter regular, fire, incendiary, etc) - doesn’t even flinch
    -hitting with sword- I spent abt 45 mins moving him little by little hitting him with my sword, he would stumble forward and backward, and would even crouch periodically. With successive hits He stumbled forward with enough momentum to actually get to the camp gate, I was hoping that would trigger something-it didn’t work.
    -I brought a horse from the camp to Aelfgar to see if he would get on the horse and allow me to follow him- no, that didn’t work.

    Have you also tried reloading an older save prior to starting the objective involving travelling with him, to see if he moves the full distance afterward? Yes, No change in behavior since 1.1.0, he is standing in the same spot on the dirt road leading to the camp, he is holding sword on his shoulder and behind his neck, he randomly looks up toward sky, then looks straight ahead. He does not talk.

    4.Have you experienced any similar issues in previous quests? Or is this the first issue where this kind of issue with accompanying / escorting an NPC has occurred? The only other issue I had was with the side quest with the pregnant woman (this was before patch 1.1.0) the pregnant woman would get on your horse, then about 1/2 way up the hill, she would spontaneously dismount the horse then just stand there. We hadn’t reached the destination to finish the side quest. After patch 1.1.0 released this was fixed.

    I can send video and screenshots if it would be helpful

    @wadeness123 Thanks for following up with those answers! I've added those to our report. 😊

    @grizzly9-80 Just to confirm, do you mean to say that Eivor is stuck, or is Aelfgar stuck?

    @ubiexcellent I was able to progress the mission forward by bumping into Aelfgar over and over again until he made it to the table where the map is at the camp. I had to bump him into the left side of the table and the mission continued. I am no longer stuck!

    @phil3765 I am glad to hear that the previously posted workaround to forcefully push Aelfgar to the table allowed you to proceed! Thanks for sharing that the workaround was effective for you!

    @ubi-woofer

    Was excited to hear there was a new patch today, disappointed to realise this still isn’t fixed. Haven’t been able to play the game since start of December due to this bug remaining.

    Ive been waiting on a patch for this since november. I havent touched the game since, please can you throw in a hot patch or at least acknowledge that it will be in a patch. My google search history has been filled every single day with "new Valhalla update" and I was overwhelmed with excitement just to find out that it didn't make the patch list. Im just a guy trying to enjoy and finish the game.

    @ubi-woofer After patch 1.1.1 was released I am still not able to progress. Aelfgar is still stuck in the road and not moving despite trying to move home by pushing, arrows, and kicking on horse.

    Is there anyway that this issue will be fixed so we may all actually progress/finish the game?

    @ubi-woofer It has been 2 months since I have been able to play this game. Despite saying there has been a fix a whole patch ago I have had no improvement to the issue. I really hope that the fact you have acknowledged the tedious 'work around' (which does not work for me) means you are still working on this issue and not 'putting it aside'. I would appreciate it if you would at least re-add the known issues list back to the patch notes as that is the only information the community has on the progress you are hopefully making. Its such a shame to have problems like this when overall the game is fantastic.
    Many thanks

    Hello everyone! I'm sorry to all of you that are still unable to progress in the story due to this issue with Aelfgar not moving. Our teams are definitely still investigating this issue and are currently requesting affected saves from PC and PS4 players. If any of you are able to provide those to us via a support ticket, please post your case numbers here so we can then add the files to our on-going report.

    @dbeale83 @Burg3r07 @Wadeness123 @BenPicky Your sentiments here are completely understandable! I do hope that knowing this issue is still under investigation brings you all some relief, but I am sorry that this issue hasn't been resolved yet.
