    @guest-93iaycaj Hello, and welcome to the forums! I'm sorry you're unable to progress in the "Twists and Turns" quest. We have received similar reports and the team is currently investigating. Can you let us know what is preventing you to progress in the quest in case it is different from the issue already under investigation? Thank you!

    Yes, you follow Bristan to the Hogs and he doesn't do anything after you kill the hogs. I have saved and restarted, I have killed over 6 hogs, nothing happens, he just stands there and the dog doesn't do anything either.

    Hi I have a problem with the Twists and Turns storyline. It has me follow birstan and kill boars for the feast. What happened was I went ahead of birstan because I was impatient and killed the boar but it didn’t trigger the next objective and now the objective says to follow birstan but he isn’t moving and won’t go anywhere. I’ve tried bumping him with my horse to get closer to the boar pit but it doesn’t seem to help. I’ve killed all of the boars too and that doesn’t work. I’ve even pledged to other arcs in the game and come back but he is in the same place I left him. This is the last storyline I need and I can’t complete the game because of this bug and it is extremely frustrating.

    +1 I faced the same bug and I cannot progress further in the game. Ubi please fix it.
    Waited for the latest update to continue playing but the patch doesn't contain fix for this particular issue.
    I already finished with all other provinces, but I like the game and want to finish it.

    Birstan and his stupid dog are stuck near the swamps, and they are just standing there doing nothing. I tried to push him to the middle of the swamp and than back to his dog(stupid), he killed a few boars but progress bar for killing boars didn't appear.

    I think in my case the thing that broke the quest was the npc patrol that spawned on the road near the swamp. Birstan started fighting with them and that could have broke the behavior tree.

    Essexe quest "Twists and Turns" is glitched. Instruction is to follow Birstan but he is not moving so I cannot go further.

    In Twists and Turns I followed Birstan to the boar location but he just stands there. The hunt does not begin and I can’t get him to move or do anything with the task remaining as Follow Birstan”. I’ve switched to other quests and returned and it’s the same meaning I cannot complete the quest. Very frustrating.

    i cannot "follow birstan" he refuses to move. It is pretty annoying that I cannot complete this quest. What am I supposed to do? It is the point where I am supposed to kill boars.

    @aztecmark doesn’t work for me either. I’ve killed the boars but Bristian just stands there.

    So when the mission tells me to "follow" Birstan, HE starts following me. I was luckily able to finish the "Unconventional" quests, but now I'm stuck on "Twists and Turns" and have no idea where I am supposed to go to hunt for boar. The place where the dialogue line "This is a good place to hunt some boar" is near a field of wheat, with not a boar in sight.

    Additionally, while Birstan is following Eivor's movement is severely hampered, to the point of needing to try and sprint everywhere just to make some headway.

    I'm stuck at a gamebreaking glitch / bug... Twists & Turns in Essex. Birstan just stands there and does nothing at the boar pit. Have tried pushing him around, leaving the animus, going to Asgard, standing still beside him... Literally cannot progress any further in the game because of this glitch / bug. Seems that others are having the same issue and latest update does not address. Help!!!
