    Hi,

    I play on the PC and have the problem that my Xbox Elite 2 controller is repeatedly disconnected and reconnected according to the overlay. So far, the problem only occurs with Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The period between disconnect and reconnect is not noticeable, but there is a massive lag in the game per connect message from the overlay.

    Does anyone have any tips?

    Alright so connecting the controller via cable works instantly. Connecting the new controller via bluetooth just isn't possible yet on Windows PC's I guess?

    Thanks for the report.

    It sounds like there may need to be an update for the Bluetooth drivers, I'll certainly pass this on regardless.

    @xzxdarkhuntzxzx may be something with the controller chip not set for window 10 or not detected right by windows. Check for driver updates from MS. the chip set may not yet be in current drivers that work with default xbox one controllers. COuld be a settign for bluetooth or device id not recognized.

    hopefully it will be fixed soon.

    @dontonn Hey there! Not a fix I know, but does this happen at all when you are connected via cable?

    Please try verifying your game files and testing the game again.

    Seconded - the controller works (well enough) with the Uplay Connect overlay, but the game itself is not recognizing my controller.

    The game menu recognizes all inputs from my XBOX controller, but in-game it doesn't recognize the RB. You know, the one needed for light attacks... On PC.

    @okiemarine so you just plugged yours in and it was able to recognize it no update or programming needed? mine wont even register when i plug it in

    @shelty321 Yeah. My controller is always plugged in. It recognized it right away, even when I unplugged and plugged back in, trying to troubleshoot the button issue.

    That sounds familiar - the controller works, but the shoulder buttons don't register for me either. I also don't have the option to change the control from 'Mouse+Keyboard' to 'Controller'

    Weird.

    Ok, I found a workaround. Got to the first elite fight and WASD + Q + Shift + Alt for all the commands was not working for me.

    I loaded Valhalla into Steam and launched from there - no issue with the controller at all from that point. I use 'SteamGridDB Manager' for this. Not sure if it will help with your particular issues, but it cleared up mine!

    Xbox Series X controller not working for me when plugged in either. A Uplay popup shows that a controller is detected and it detects controller inputs when I activate the uplay overlay, but in game it is not detected.

    What's super fun is this doesn't seem limited to PC only. While I do not yet have the new series x console in-hand, I did pick up one of the new controllers. They work with xbox one so no problem. It is great on the console. As soon as I start trying to play Valhalla, it is doing this really weird thing where it alternates between connected and disconnected every couple of seconds and appear to try to be swapping between keyboard and mouse and controller at those times. Either way, it effectively leaves the game unplayable with the new controller. I did not have this issue last night with a standard xbox one controller, but the issue appears to be limited strictly to Valhalla. Not sure how this went unnoticed.

    Fun fact, this is true on both console and PC. The new xbox controller constantly disconnects and reconnects when in gameplay for Valhalla. For some reason, when you get in to submenus, it works fine. Issue seems limited to ACV and doesn't occur on other titles. I submitted a support ticket. If it matters, I am using an xbox one with the new carbon black series x controller.

    Okay for me it seems like a windows update issue. Series X controller now works in-game after installing windows updates as well as updating all the xbox related apps in the Windows store.

    So after those updates it works when connected via USB C but bluetooth still isn't working despite showing up in windows and being detected by the ubisoft connect overlay.

    @judgekenobi yes thats the issue im having as well. although it did die down when i hooked up the wire instead. when its bluetooth only it somehow messes with the connectivity and renders the game choppy as hell because of it coming on and off. I think it must be eating up all the CPU at those times or something. But it just happens so frequently that it just seems consistent when it really shouldnt be

    The Xbox series x controller connects perfectly with my PC and functions in the Ubisoft overlay, but does not allow use within the game itself.
