    Hi - as others have said, the body cannot be interacted with in that way. You can speak to the dead body, but once that dialog is completed you cannot pick up or booby trap the body. In fact as it is part of a cut scene, you cannot use any weapons or abilities.

    @guest-ynbmq8mg Thanks for sharing this workaround!

    @Swaza1979 I appreciate you getting back to me with this information. While we do not have any additional details to share regarding this issue, I have requested an update from the development team and will share any new information as soon as it's been provided to me.

    @silver_zamurai Hi there. I completely understand how frustrating this issue is and am extremely sorry about that. I checked on our on-going report, but no new details have been shared with us by the development team on this issue as of yet. However, since you're on the PC, would you be able to provide your save file(s) perhaps? These would help our teams look into what might be going on, and hopefully help with finding a fix.

    Reloading 10 minutes back, to the war in eurviscire, end then walk to the mission " of blood and bonds ", do not fast travel !! If i fast travel, halfdan lies dead on the floor, if i walk, to jorvik, he is alive and i can continue the mission,

    Hope this helps for you two, good luck

    I have this same issue.... Frustrating!

    I don't have a previous saves game I can load either... Ugh... Game over?

    Of blood and bonds quest, Halfdan’s coronation, Halfdan is lying on the ground and there is no interaction option, no progress with the quest possible. I also experienced not being able to get off my horse, or use other actions. I have this glitch since yesterday, tried a couple of times, doing other quests in between and coming back but still the same issue. When i went to support pages, and wanted to submit a case it said it wasn’t possible and should use the chat, but chat is unavailable. This is a joke. Cannot count the number of glitches that did not allow me to continue with a quest.

    I'm unable to progress in the 'Of Blood And Bonds' quest. I need to take Halfdan to the coronation but he's stuck laying on the ground. The update today didn't fix it as i'd hoped.

    Halfdan whilst supposedly on his way to be crowned king of Jorvik is lying face down on the ground where he was talking to Faravid, it’s a game breaker as we can’t complete the arc as “he needs to be present”

    Hello everyone,

    Thank you for your continued reports of this issue with "Of Blood and Bonds" whereby the coronation sequence cannot be completed due to Halfdan lying dead on the floor. I've merged several threads for this topic into this new megathread, and we'll be updating this thread from now on with the latest information about the issue and requests for further information if/as necessary. 🙂

    If the previously suggested workaround to trap Halfdan's corpse and have an enemy investigate it to make it explode is impossible for you to perform, another workaround suggested by players in the thread (thanks to @guest-ynbmQ8mg and @tommetj for this!) is to reload a save from before spoiler and then travel again to the Royal Hall to start the objective to find Halfdan and walk him back to the ceremony. Hopefully things should proceed as normal from there.

    Should that workaround not be possible or effective, then please do rest assured that this is an issue under investigation and the developers are looking for a fix. To aid them in their investigation, we're collecting videos of the issue and save files from affected players, as well as MSINFO / DXDIAG files from PC players who are experiencing the issue. If you would be able to provide any of the aforementioned resources for us to look at, it would be much appreciated! The files can be submitted via a support case, while any videos should be uploaded to a hosting site such as YouTube and then the link shared here, so that we can easily pass the link onto the relevant teams involved in the investigation.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions, and have a nice evening! 🙂

    Dear Ubisoft, how on Earth can I submit this as a bug report, while your own ticket system says that due to COVID support is unavailable (chat only)? And then chat... is also not available.

    Here is the video:

    hey thanks for trying to help us man I know this isn’t an easy thing to fix, a game this size is gonna have issues . I know this is gonna sound dumb but instead of fixing the bug can’t they just change the requirement of the mission? So instead of Halfdan needing to be present, we can just go to the royal hall for the coronation instead, that little (unnecessary in my opinion) go get Halfdan who’s 2 seconds away from the hall anyway moment is what’s causing the issue in the first place! Just a thought, and I’ll contact the help guys to see how to add my save file

    @neilgd - Thanks for your understanding! I've taken a look and I can see that you play on PS5. In this case, you may not be able to submit your save file for further investigation, as I believe these can only be collected from PC/PS4. If you're able to access the game on PS4, we'd appreciate you still taking the time to submit your saves for investigation! If you're unable to do so, please don't worry. We're grateful that you took the time to send us a video and provide your report on your experiences of the issue in-game 😊
