@ubi-mark The issue we all have now, is that, for every product you now release, HOW ON EARTH can we ever trust your QA department / management...!!!
I'm afraid you're going to have a significant shift of folk now going to wait till all future games appear on sale - i.e. - by which time we all hope these game-breaking bugs are properly ironed out so that WE CAN ACTUALLY PLAY YOUR GAMES.
I, personally, am NOT going to purchase any future full-price games from you until you prove your QA is actually FIT FOR PURPOSE. That's gonna take you some time - you knew about this bug for months...shocking way to treat your customers...!!!

@daepicpro exact same thing has happened to me this evening. I’ve loaded a game before speaking to Randvi and will try do the second Asgard Quest and Vinland arc, hopefully by then there will be a patch of sorts to fix this. Game is good, but not Witcher 3 good. I have absolutely no inclination to go back and grind for hours to get to this point again and hope it will work.

Another here. I'm stuck in the PS5 version. 4 months of a bug and still no expected date. I'm done. Asking for a REFUND.

@doner07 For what it's worth, his exact words were "the fix is planned to be released with a future update." The next big update (IIRC) is scheduled for the end of this month. They've been saying "future update" for some time.
If it were confirmed for the next update, I'd be saying so. In other words, you probably haven't wasted your time restarting. Unfortunately, this latest response has only added that the bug has been reproduced (can't imagine it would be that difficult given how prevalent it is, lol).
@frustratedgamer Yeah, it's not "good news". Almost 6 months to replicate the bug and now we're back allllllll the way around to the beginning with "hope for a future fix blah blah blah". They could have come over to my house at any time and I would have replicated the [censored] for them. IF the bug was going to be fixed on 4-29, they would have said next update. I am absolutely amazed that they're releasing ptp dlc when the main story is still broken for like 50% of players. If Brewing Storm isn't fixed in the next patch why would anyone pay for Wrath of the Druids? I have a season pass but I won't be anywhere near ready to play it unless I speed up my catch up and I don't really care. The 29th is still a long way off too. I'd still start over if you're interested in getting past the bug before another month and MAYBE (probably not) the patch fixes it. The "communication" has been [censored] from go.

I am absolutely amazed that they're releasing ptp dlc when the main story is still broken for like 50% of players.
While this error is major and the time it has taken to get us to this point is completely unacceptable the number of players this is broken for is nowhere near 50%. My guess is that the percentage is in the low single digits. But, even if the game had only sold 1 million copies, even 1% of a million is 10,000 players. The percentage does not matter in the end. It is a bugged main quest. It should have been given priority long ago. I am not happy that they are releasing new content and then releasing patches to fix bugs in that new content while many base game quests have been bugged since release. Seriously screwed up priorities.
What is amusing is that for the Lost Glory Quest bug we have told them the exact cause of it back in Nov/Dec. It is simple to reproduce and it also has not been touched.

@zorovichinski The issue we all have now, is that, for every product you now release, HOW ON EARTH can we ever trust your QA department / management...!!!
This is true.I played all their new realeses and all of them have problems which nobody care.I can make only one exeption for Immortals Fenyx Rising,cuz Odyssey team opimized it a little better then it was after release,but still i cant recomend that game.If u have kids better spent money on something useful instead of this.
As for me i learned lesson far years ago,when they started selling DLC,which is not included in season pass(im talking about AC Syndicate)and i was shocked by support answer:"Sometimes u not receive everything".No more-i said to myself and since that time i buy only games on sale out or year after release.I recommend better use Ubiconnect subscription or split price with a friend using same account,instead of buying their games.And befory u buy better search about which bugs that game have,they was fixed or not.
Now i understand why they making games with over 100h of gameplay,because they need to sell that damn subscription over and over again.
Lets back to Valhalla.
- Since release season pass holders dont receive anything,exept promises.Remember if u pay for season pass u paying not for content,u paying for promises that such content will be created,but when and how many nobody cant say with 100 percen guarantee(meaning correct date and time).
- When Immortals Fenyx Rising already have 2 DLC,WD Legion(2 missions its not DLC) and AC Valhalla players got [censored] nothing and have to deal with a tons of unfixed bugs themselves.
- Ubisoft keep focusing on microtranzactions and monetizing ignoring most unacceptable bugs.Even Ostara festival bugs wasnt fixed properly.But look Helix store was received regular update.
- Monetizing transmog feature its a spit to the face of players!When in Odyssey and Immortals Fenyx Rising this is free but here u have to spent a lot silver for that and choose wisely.This should be removed as well as downgrading gear prices,no exeptions.
Im gonna say maybe some unpopular thing,for which I can receive a ban,but i dont care really.So the thing is that the girl who broke AC Valhalla denuvo was added Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 support withing one week.
Without thousands crew members.
Without asking money for that,like we pay Ubisoft.
Can u receive such support from Ubi in limited time?Never.If they wanted they will added support DX11 and other Windows version and did better optimization.But hell no,Nvidia must sell their new videocards.
People who paid money for your product deserve proper support and a proper treatment.
Ubisoft store even dont have quick refund,where u can return your money yourself without contacting support.What the [censored] is that?They needed to be pushed by someone,like that happens with Steam,years ago when it dont have refund politics.
I dont believe that ubisoft politics changes in future,but we can stop them or at least dont let them go further,otherwise they keep doing that and pushing more and more.Its like junkie that cant stop,so they need more and more money Be smart,if u have something to say say it,there are many ways to be heard.According to this thread and many other i really can see that many ppl now understand what is true face of Ubisoft is.
Respect to all who share their thoughts,same as for ppl who helped with some solutions!When support fails community goes on stage.

@vegasheart Honestly agree with most of this except the Transmog, it's 50 silver and an in game currency. I think priority should shift to making the game work above all else.
Also their twitter is a joke. Tells me to message them in a private DM to start refund process and then don't respond.

Hi everyone. So I decided to restart the game, switched it to easy mode (I actually struggled more because the enemies swung really slow and messed up my timing) and sped run it and got it past the brewing storm quest. I fought Dag and am going to explore after finishing this post. There were a few things I did differently and it took me roughly 16 hours.
1) I remember seeing someone post something and said to finish all the quest (wealth/mysteries) in the first map so I did that.
2) Not sure if this has any effect, but I did Oxenefordschire BEFORE London.
3) Another thing I did differently is I waited until beating Oxenefordschire THAN I built Valka's hut. (I did this because I wanted the wolf to help me with the boss battle of London. I couldn't get the Knud/Wolf quest until after building Valka's hut).
*Also note that I did not start any of Valka's quest. I didn't even gather ingredients for her.
Obviously i was annoyed I had to restart all over. But to anyone with the bug and still hesitating to do so, I would say go for it. I feel so much better now that I don't have to deal with the bug anymore and can continue on my journey. Hope this helps and good luck! Remember: Speed Runnnn!

After over 100 hours of game play, I decided to bite the bullet and start the game again. This time I got past the Dag bug.
Like others, I did things differently.
Norway - Just did the quests, no Wealth/Artifacts or Mysteries (WAM). I never spoke or interacted with anyone unless it was quest related.
England - Did the following territories in order - Leicestershire, Cambridgeshire, London, York, East Anglia, Oxfordshire, Shropshire and then Kent. Whilst at York, my power level was low, so started doing WAM in territories that had a low power, until I got stronger. After that I didn't do anymore WAM.
Settlement - I'm at level 3. Only built the Blacksmith, Tradepost and Reda buildings. Didn't do any Reda missions. Took the Seers belonging to her tent, but not done her quests at Astrad and Vingard.
River Raids - Haven't started as building isn't built and only raided 1 monastery as per the quest early on.
People - I didn't interact with anyone unless quest related.
I never fast travelled anywhere, I just used the boat or the horse.
I didn't put the book you get from London on the end of the bed and I didn't sleep in the bed, until the Brewing a Storm quest.
I didn't get romantically involved with anyone.

So assassin creed valhalla is a linear game that has nothing to do with the open world.

Add another name to the list. I don't know if it's reassuring or worrying to see that so many people are experiencing the same problem.
Someone mentioned it before, but it would be nice to at least be allowed to skip the mission altogether. The fight against Kjotve at the very beginning of the game was broken for me, but what made it bearable was that I could still play on. This time, the game has simply become unplayable (Eivor goes to bed and wakes up in "hell", where everything is frozen in time or something), and using an old save file didn't do the trick. It would be fine if it were a short game, but I've already spent 85 hours on it, so there's no way I'm starting it over from the beginning. I really hope the new update will fix this mess because I'm about to give up on this game. Such a shame because I was enjoying it (until now).
