    @cristi351 Modern video games industry does not sell games anymore. It turns to be too expensive to build new games, as all the time you need to beat the history and invest more and more. Instead all video games producers sell the “expectation” about a future game. It is similar to option futures. So you pay them in a hope that the game you like is going to be good and bugless. But ... this is a pure gambling 😉

    @maxinthemix Something whispers “you will need to start it over from scratch”. I’d better wait couple of years, after the next game in from AC series to make sure ALL bugs are fixed prior to playing. Unless I will be able to resume from my latest save, AC Valhalla is done deal for me. Glad I bought it with good discount.

    @guest-lukezodb Funny and sad at the same time! I have the same feeling. Hopefully we are both wrong.

    I've got exactly the same issue now in APRIL, 6 months on!!! I did the " In dreams " quest that people say gives issues that lead into this, even did the second Asgard/jotunheim questline, after completing all Cent quests I head to Randvi and get sent to bed. I awake to a storm in camp, unable to interact with NPC's, no sign of DAG anywhere! I even headed back to Cent from a previous save and did it all again to try again......same outcome!!! Ubisoft...any signs of a fix before the next ASSASSINS CREED game hits shelves?

    I'm stuck here as well. I've tried everything that was suggested except for building something in my settlement. My settlement is level 5 and I've completed both segments in Asgard. As soon as I can I'll try to upgrade and see if that works. However I have 106 hours into this game and power 330. I don't want to restart.

    @frizelle1980 Supposedly, a fix will be released next week and it supposedly fix the bug. That's all we, forum members, know.

    @cristi351 Just in case... you should keep that save before Cent just in case you need it when you install the update. Nobody knows if the update is going to work nor how it is going to work.

    @docholliday182 Yeah, there is zero trust into Ubisoft’s actions now. Modern global corporations have completely forgot about any reputation. The stock exchange has replaced regular customers. Release the ... “raw stake”, collect money from pre-orders or early sales, invest into own stocks buy back, push own stocks up, move on and carry off. Customers? Nobody cares. I wish we could drop their stocks value to negative. That the only thing that works to push them back on the ground and start paying a little attention to the .., “products” they make.

    What we need to do is see if we can get a class action lawsuit going against Ubisoft for a peddling this crap for 6 months....

    I don't think we need to write off all Ubisoft teams. I am still willing to give the Quebec teams some slack. I thought they killed it with AC Odyssey and their follow up Immortals Fenyx Rising has already released 3 DLCs, even though they released just two weeks before Valhalla.

    The Montreal Team which was responsible for this game also gave us AC Unity, considered to the the buggiest, glitchiest of all the AC titles.

    @guest-lukezodb Hopefully, people will think twice before buying the next AC. I bought the game in late March. Game was released in November? I never thought I'd encounter such bug... that's why I didn't do any research. Next time... I, for one, will wait at least a year before buying it.

    Assassin's creed Valhalla (PS5) bugs for me at the quest "A brewing storm" also. I head to Randvi and get sent to bed. I awake to a storm in camp, if i dont remember wrong, the wolf howled a lot 🙂 and after that...? unable to interact with NPC's, no sign of DAG anywhere! I can't use any of rapid trip, I can relsoving mysteries or discovering treasure, doing this for the last days, a LOT.  And the storm is everywhere and never stopping. I can't do any mission anymore. I´m too old to start again / wait six months / read through everything. HELP!

    A fix, eh? Well, I still have my save from just prior to 'A Brewing Storm' (before I successfully restarted and avoided the bug), so I'll be sure to test it out once I've applied the latest update and report back.

    Sure hope the hoofbeats sound when Eivor is riding is restored (they vanished in the last major update). As for Gunnar acting like a fruit loop threatening me every time I come back to Ravensthorpe, I'm okay if you don't fix that - it's always good for a laugh.

    @sss69fin Apparently they've developed a fix which will be included in the next update (next week). So, just sit tight and cross your fingers they've sorted it. If the fix is a success, then consider yourself damn lucky you hit it just before the update was released. Some poor buggers have been waiting nearly half a year! 🙂

    @maddox64 The idea behind AC Valhalla was generally great but the implementation smashed it out. I haven’t seen such many bugs in a single game since probably Half Life’s times.As I have mentioned before, it looks like the product was in very early beta when the business people did hard push to release it before Christmas to gain some annual bonus for themselves. Apparently, the development team neither had a choice nor a plan B for how to address the maintenance and simply failed under overwhelming number of issues. Don’t forget that AnvilNext 2.0 is a proprietary software and this significantly shrinks the circle of those who really knows how it all works for real. Plus they might have outsourced scenes script sequences to some cheap locations. Plus “Agile” - the best friend of the developers to find the excuse for being 100x times overbudgeted and behind any possible deadlines. Well, I am very well familiar of how the industry works from within to solve this quiz by only interacting with outside clues 🙂 The lesson learned. Expect the future degradation of the quality in video games and don’t buy anything “fresh”. As you mentioned above, wait at least for two years and search for “game breaker bug in AC ... “.

    @justus1302 While a long overdue fix is clearly welcome, Ubisoft has clearly lost a significant level of reputation from the buying public. Company owners gambling with QA is never, ever a good thing since when it backfires like this, you directly hit every consumer affected (pockets and game-time) - and that's gonna leave a sour taste that might not go away (and a damn shame to the programmers, gfx and audio artists who did the actual work).
    As a bare minimum, I'd expect a significant shift away from those same customers purchasing early and at full price. If QA is this pathetic I ain't touching your products with a bargepole till a looong time after release i.e. till it's proven itself.

    @guest-lukezodb I don't blame the actual teams who developed these games, but the company owners who clearly ok'd the release before full QA had taken place...game-breaking bugs in the main quest line (like that seen in A Brewing Storm) would never have happened if a full QA process had been in place/completed, particularly telling that we see it happening in fixed systems such as the Playstation too.

    @zorovichinski at first glance sounds logical but I think this I the loop ubisoft and the players are in. Don’t get me wrong ubisoft needs to deliver a beter product. But at launch they may have had minor problems and they think “ nailed it” and people start working on other projects. But nobody buys a ubisoft title at launch so after 2/3 months the problems start. And now the problem is to big and they can’t move people back to work on it. If players now start buying the game at 6 month the community will find out much later and players who bought the game at launch will be stuck much longer
