If this has already been reported please ignore. Apologise in advance. Not sure if this has happened to anybody else on the PS5 it hadn't happened to me on the XBX and I've completed the River Raids.
I started on River Raids on the PS5 after completing them all on the XBX. When I got the second clue I collected the clue and the game crashed, now I don't know if this was Sony's or Ubisoft fault because it generated am error code when it crashed. But I know from already completing the River Raids that when you get the 2nd clue you are to go back to Raventhorpe and he will give you a new location. Because I crashed before I could return to Raventhorpe I cannot speak to him and this is where its broken the game. Without you speaking to the guy in charge of the Raid Missions he won't give you a new location which is the River Dee. I had no option but to undo 2 days of Raid Mission and start all over again. To which is was annoyed because it crashed a second time and I though that's it I'm done this is just ridiculous it's crashed twice today and it broke River Raids. The problem is this happens you have no option but to start all over again. Why you didn't add an option into the menu Restart River Raids... with a message that reads.
"Warming all saved Raids will be lost do you want to continue."
Yes or No
Unfortunately I have no recording sorry because it crashed and I tried but it didn't record what happened. The only way around this was to reload from when you first started River Raids which is what I've just had to do. Am I bitter a little, but it's only only game and I am still alive that is more important to be honest.
@hefeydd_ I just want to emphasis that I had completed both rivers and got both the clues. But because it crashed on the 2nd clue before I got back to the Clan. I could not progress any further. So I one way this completely broke River Raids. The only way you can resolve this is to completely restart the River Raid from the very beginning.
Therefore, the game knows that you have both clues because but the main character of River Raids does not communicate with you. So another way around this would be to add code to the main River Raid character once you have collected both maps if you cannot communicate for any reason it will automatically progress you to the 3rd River Raid which is the River Dee. Because I had to completely redo 2 days of Raid Missions which I still don't know if it was caused by Rest Mode which we know is corrupt on the PS5 I mean it isn't no secret that it does cause games to crash. But nevertheless if this happens in before you get back to your settlement it breaks the River Raids regardless of who is responsible. I mean to be honest this is something that should have been added to River Raids as a precaution just in case the game crashed. As long as you has the first to map clues it should have had an alternative root to still be able to proceed.

Hello there @Hefeydd_!
Thanks for reporting this. I'm sorry to hear that you've had this experience with your game crashing. If you happen to know what the error code was, or can remember parts of it, we can certainly take a closer look at this. In my experience, if it was a "CE" error code, this is generated by the PlayStation console itself. You may be able to find more help from the PlayStation Support website in this case.
I've taken a look and I can see that the development team have been made aware of this issue occuring in game. They hope to be able to resolve this in a future update, so please keep an eye out in the "News & Announcements" forum for more information about this.
Out of curiosity, did the game always crash at the same point? Or when carrying out a specific action during the River Raid? If this happened consistently for you in the same place, we would like to investigate this further.
Thanks for taking the time to share your suggestions and feedback on crash fail-safes as well. I understand that losing progress due to a crash can be frustrating, and apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.
@ubi-borealis No it crashed on the first River Exe and then when I collected the 2nd clue on the River Severn it crashed just as I was returning from the Raid back to the Clan. Even though I had collected the 2nd clue of the map it would not progress to the River Dee because there was no interaction with Vagn. Because there was no cut scene where you interact with Vagn he does not tell you about the River Dee and the other map clue. Like I said, it broke the River Raid, regardless whether this was Sony or Ubisoft fault, if this happens you have to start the River Raid all over again thankfully I have already completed this so I already know where the Map Clues are and the chest containing the St George Gear and weapons. The point I am making is if the game for reasons of the console, the game and you DO NOT interact with Vagn it breaks the River Raid and you have no option but to start all over again. Thankfully I have done Clue 1 and 2 today didn't take long and doing the 3rd one now very shortly.
My suggestion if you are thinking of adding further River Raids in the future then may I suggest that you add a Quest that says... Speak to Vagn about further map clues and locations. by you selecting this Quest this will trigger you to speak to Vagn and he will then tell you about further map clues and locations. Just a suggestion, and it would resolve the problem.

Thanks for providing me with more information about the crashes, @Hefeydd_.
Thanks for taking the time to share your suggestions on future River Raids, and how to improve these, as well. Please be assured that the development team is aware of this issue wherein players may be unable to interact with Vagn and unlock the River Dee. They hope to resolve this in a future update. Please keep an eye out within our News & Announcements forum for future updates and information about this.
