    I can't continue with the story due to game breaking bugs. How does ubi release a game with game breaking bugs without testing it first?

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    This is Ubisoft's modus operandi. They don't bug test their games to the level that other developers do. It's become a joke in the gaming community. I'm going to stop purchasing their games until they're half price and patched. I'm done giving them money when they don't deserve it.

    @ian776 imagine spending $60 on a game that you can't even play due to bugs. LMFAO

    You mean: when is the next patch beta testing starting?

    You’d think they would do some quick patches for the quests that are broken and game stoppers before most everyone migrated over to Cyberpunk. Gonna make people wait an entire month before they can progress the story.

    @souldrinkerlp nobody is going to be playing this buggy [censored] game once cyberpunk is released.

    @alliancestuck You should tell that to Ubisoft 🙂 I already finished Valhalla and am waiting for Cyberpunk.

    I feel ripped of, fall into their buisness trap, they released the game, no matter if goldstatus is achieved or not, before cyberpunk come out.
    For sure valhalla is a game i would love to play, but they dont paid me to report bugs, I PAID THEM to enjoy a game, sadly not yet possible.

    @ian776 Judging by the extremely obscure bugs that DO get fixed, would say they already know 95% of the issues out there before even reporting them. But go ahead and release to meet deadlines with plans to "fix" in patches.

    What gets me though, is we aren't talking about 5 guys on kickstarter trying to get their "16 bit rpg" on Steam. It's arguably a billion dollar company ($60 x total units sold for rough guesses, not including discounts, add-ons, "season passes", microtransactions, etc.) so you'd think they'd reinvest in more manpower to actually fix these things, rapidly, and not a hodge-podge of fixes every few weeks that force some people to wait months or possibly never get fixed. They clearly are invested into trying to maintain "player retention" over a longer period (look at Reda stuff being spread out over a week and needing months to possibly get a full set) akin to an mmo, with I'm guessing hopes of getting more people to spend more $$$ by justification i.e. I'm playing this for several weeks, so why not spend $200.... and the damage caused by releasing in such a broken state severely tarnishes the brand.

    @alliancestuck It's not going to be a patch to fix any bugs. It's going to be a patch to balance the weapons IN A PVE GAME. That's the focus, not bugs. They don't care about bugs. You feeling OP while whooping some English [censored] is what they are concerned about.

    @souldrinkerlp how did you finish the game without encountering major bugs?

    Yeah i know of more people who also have almost no problems with Valhalla and also even finished the game. I don't know what this is some of them are on the same platform as me.

    If someone can play the without major bugs, and if that person is not waiting for anything beyond the main story, the game can be... quite good in fact.
    The positive reviews are mainly based on that category of players.
    The problem is that there is non negligible portion of players who want to play the game the same way they played Origins and Odyssey: for hundreds of hours.
    And the game as it is now dont allow them to do so as it is over after the main story and nothing exists to keep it entertaining after roughly 60 hours of gameplay.
    I'm pretty sure Ubisoft will patch Bughalla, but can they modify the core of the game to make it as good as Odyssey?! On that matter I am slightly sceptical.

    @ian776 It's a huge joke.

    Only 3 actual "side quests" in the game, and one of them can't be completed because you can't speak to the single NPC involved.

    I wonder if they broke Reda after fixing his growth spurt problems. Oh well, at least I stopped hearing "THEES ONE HAPPENED A LONG TIME AGO, AT A DESSERT O-WAY-SIS" every time I enter my settlement

    its like HDZ some had no problem others had
    i did the main line without to much bugs, had to restart sometimes a quest (fulke-fight) not playing the outside scene, some npc's not talking, but all worked after a restart(reload), opal dealer not speaking( but i don't need him), thropy's not on wall, (but none are game breaking), this game is like gambling, for some it works for others not

    but in the end the game is filled with bugs

    @speedynl21 You mean HZD? It had a lot of small problems but nothing really game breaking. Some stuff was very sad like the trails in snow not working at all when playing >30FPS only in the DLC area it worked and even then it looked weird. Probably they have fixed that by now?

    Other than that HZD was running very well for me. Could have been way more optimized tbh.
