    Same problem on PS4

    Tried restarting, changed/hid cloak and helmet, changed gender, exit/enter animus, yelled at TV and PlayStation..didn’t help. This really kills the immersion of the game. I’m usually happy when player visuals are correctly displayed in cutscenes, but I’d rather be without the horse skull.

    Hello everyone! 🙂

    I'm very happy to return to the thread to confirm that TU 1.1.1 - releasing today - contains a fix for this issue with the Mari Lwyd disguise. Once the patch has been fully deployed, and you have fully-updated your game to the latest version, you should find that you are (finally!) able to remove the disguise when outside of Glowecestrescire, and should no longer see it stuck over your worn armour.

    If exploring Glowecestrescire or completing the arc, please do be aware that as we mentioned before, the disguise will always involve the Mari Lwyd cloak and mask as these are part of the themed costume you wear as part of the Samhain festival in the region. Once you leave Glowecestrescire, toggling your disguise should remove the Mari Lwyd cloak and mask.

    I would like to thank you all again for the information and evidence provided throughout the developers' investigation into this issue; it was integral to getting this issue resolved, and was extremely useful to refer to. I hope that after today's patch, there'll be no further issues, but should any arise, you are of course welcome to get in touch with me here in the thread and I'll reply as soon as I am able.

    Le déguisement de Marie Lwyd est impossible à retirer et reste en permanence au dessus de la cape équipée. Il reste également présent lorsque qu’aucune cape n’est équipée.

    now I'm also afflicted by the sticking halloween cloak. I spared the harvest king and the witch. Maybe the glitch doesn't occur when you handle them differently.

    Cloak is there all the time after you complete Glowecestrescire. Does not matter where you are on the map.

    @loki1130 Was talking to ubisoft chat support yesterday about this issue and at the end of it they said that they are aware of the issue and are investigating it, so here's to hopping that they solve it and fix when the next patch releases.

    Looks like the cloak is not removable once you start The Gutted Lamb quest. Before that if you have traveled to any other area then Glowecestrescire you can replace that cloak with your own cape by pulling up the hood.

    I was able to fix mine by unequipping all of my items and then closing my inventory. Good luck fellas!

    Have the same issue. tried all the supposed fixes (fast travelling to ravensthorpe and putting on cloak, removing all gear and then selecting the cloak etc) i even tried switching eivors gender, going to asgard, having a feast, anything to reload the character model but nothing worked. i could remove the cloak previously but when i finished the arc and progressed past The Gutted Lamb quest it was permanently stuck to my character. Really annoying as i dont like the look of the cloak nor the mask that comes with it, puts me off playing the game while i have this stupid thing stuck to me. hope ubi fixes it soon 😞

    Yeah, just got this. So, the cloak is unremovable forever without a broken workaround? As in, every time you happen to hit the border of gloucester it goes back on? If so I guess I am deleting 2 hours worth of save, and redoing the

    I did just before. As that is my earliest save. This is probably one of the most insane bugs I have ever seen. Everything else okay, okay, but this one just takes the cake Ubisoft. Almost every single time I do a lighthearted or goofy quest your game breaks. Horribly. I literally cannot believe this.

    What I did to remove it was the following:

    Re-load a previous save and finish the Glowecestre questline.

    Right after, fast travel to your settlement.

    You will arrive with the ugly Halloween cloak. Proceed to press down on the D-Pad and put the hood on. Do NOT unequip or hide the cloak first, just press down on the D-Pad to try to put on the skull mask at your settlement.

    This will revert you back to your normal cloak thus fixing the issue.

    If you report to Randvi you will be stuck with the ugly halloween cloak so don't do that first.

    @raphaelzoren So, if I completed the story arc, fast traveled back to my settlement, cloaked, THEN turned it in. This nightmare would be gone for good? I like the sound of that, if that is true. I might be able to do this story arc after all.

    Idk if I’m getting ahead of myself but I completed this arc and I still have the robe given from this arc after completion. My issue is I cannot access my other robes and I remain with the one from this arc. Am I missing something or is this a glitch where I have to continue with this robe? I just want to use my other robes.

    @sharkbait_85 I had the same issue. I went back to ravensthorpe and simply cloaked and de-cloaked and my intended cloak was back on. Silly bug but smth that should help

    I found a workaround in case anyone would be wanting to try this while having a recent save during the Quest.
    First I was in the midway of knocking doors (1/3) then I engaged the guards on the bridge which instantly removed the face mask of Mari Lwyd.
    Then I wasn't able to knock doors anymore I did the following as follows:
    -meditate (To daytime).
    -rode the horse to Hamtunscire.
    -fast traveled to the dock in Glowecestre (the mask came back on during loading screen).
    -I then completed the quests (remaining 2 doors).
    -Attacked the guards again.
    -Rode to Hamtunscire.
    -And finally was able to remove the cloack via the quick menu to cloak/uncloak.

    It's a bit hectic but it worked for me that way after many trials of mixing things up.
    In the end I went to find Gunnar and get into the fist fight without Mary lwyd cloak/mask.

    I'm a few hours away from the quest in Glowecestrescire for Gunnar, whenever I put the hood up it changes to that hood with the skull and I'm unable to change it back or remove it.

    @meinchurro yup, that's what I did. I completed the entire arc w/o leaving Glowecesteire to prevent potential bugs, went to my settlement, tried to put the halloween skull on and it vanished.

    @expressedzero68 If you've completed that quest line, you need to change your hood to a different one and then back again (simply hiding the hood won't work). The Mari Lwyd hood will return each time you visit Glowecestre(scire), so you'll need to do this each time you leave the region.
