My bug is fixed.
Last night I saved in front of an animus glitch, specifically the one where you walk on water in East Anglia. Today I loaded in and immediately interacted with the glitch. I hadnt even moved Eivor. Because I hadn’t moved, my foliage hadn’t disappeared yet. When I entered the glitch everything freezes of course and nothing interacts with you. Upon LEAVING the glitch, all the foliage CONTINUED to act as it is supposed to! I have no idea if this ACTUALLY fixed it, or if the game magically fixed itself after a week of playing, but my bug is gone for now. I’ve made a separate save file for this and will load back into it if I have to.
Just to lay it out again, I’m on PS5 digital with a PS4 disc. I was 51 hours in. My game had been bugged (for the second time) since Grantebridgeshire a little before fighting Goneril. Saving directly next to a glitch in the animus, quitting, turning off my PS5, loading into (not continuing) the same bugged file the next morning, and immediately entering the animus glitch without moving has fixed my bug.

Played every assassin’s creed game, read all the comics, even watched that damn [censored] movie. But this breaks the camel’s back, this is it, i’ve held on to this series for too damn long.
Been waiting 4 months and still this issue isn’t fixed, literally can’t play this game, its so distracting. Big budget games are always so buggy, where did all the money go? What a [censored] joke. This will be my last time buying anything ubisoft related. [censored] disgrace.

- When did this start happening?
Unfortunately, I cannot tell... It has been there for a while and I have been ignoring it for too long... I stopped playing until you fix it as it is just impossible to enjoy the game.
- What is the last thing you did before the issue occurred?
Ditto. It has been there for a very long time.
- Where on the map is it happening?
Well everywhere. I will not play this game until it is fixed.
- What platform are you playing on?
PS5 with a disk.
Please do something. We payed 70 bucks for something almost unplayable. Just imagine, a game where everything is about sneaking around in stealth mode : vegetation, tents and ropes are disappearing... Huge fan of Ubi but come one... You cannot let so many people down like that...
All the best in finding a cure, I have been waiting for 4 weeks without playing.. Already too long for a Ubi game...
The bug just happened to me again. It came on slowly while weakening Sciropescire. i combed through the last hour of footage and found that it started after Dhustone Quarry. After combing through footage, I immediately quit the game to the menu, closed the software, and turned off the PS5. I turned it all back on and loaded a save from about 45 minutes ago, right before the quarry.
The bug is gone.
Loading an uncorrupted save (after closing out of everything so that file isnt infected as well) seems to be the only definitive way to make the bug go away.

@spades1961 Understood, thank you! I've passed this idea along to the development team to see if they can look into this hunch some more.
@stroodle_910 That's very interesting! I've noted that this may be related to @Spades1961's idea in my response to the team. Thank you for sharing this here in addition to your workaround for loading an uncorrupted save!
@guest-4q9x0szr Many thanks for answering the questions! I've relayed these responses to our investigating team in hopes it helps them pinpoint a fix for this issue.

Ok, this is a REALLY annoying bug. I'm encountering all these items not rendering (tents, bushes, pine trees, etc), it started a few hours ago, and no matter what save I load it ends up with the same problem. I've even deleted saves all the way back to the other day and still the bug persists.

@shade_587 Ok! So after deleting every auto, cloud, and the latest manual save files; turning off the console (PS5 - disc version); and waiting for a little while I booted the system back up and loaded an earlier manual save and no longer experienced the render bug on tents (no cloth - the poles show up), leaves on trees disappearing (makes the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree look healthy), and bushes disappearing (even those with healing properties - though I was able to gather from them just not see them).
Sadly this means that I lost several hours of gathering wealth, mysteries, and artifacts between Ledechestrescire and Grantebridgescire. But whatever, I'd rather do that then continue looking at the Ragnarsson planning tent show up as a series of poles (no cloth) with everyone chilling in the open air during a cut scene.

Same here grass disappears when I get near it, it's hard to hide, also the structures like tents disappear as well when I'm close, at this point the game is unplayable
As topic and well known bug. My foilage is disappearing around me. Tried restarting, changing graphics mode, turning off the PS5 system. Upgraded from PS4 version to PS5 version.

@guest-a0w6veab I'm sorry to hear that you have experienced this issue with missing foliage, and have lost your save progression.
We are aware that some players have experienced corrupted saves, however you mentioned that your saves have disappeared. When you click to load your saved game are the saves no longer there? Did you only have auto saves or manual saves? And how many saves are showing?
I can see that you also play the game on PlayStation 5. If you have a PlayStation Plus subscription do you manually or automatically back up your saves to the cloud?
