The development team have been notified [...] and they are investigating this further.
Since I bought ACV and experienced the first bug, I'm a regular reading guest in this forum. And really, if I had a Cent everytime I read this or a similar sentence, I would possibly buy the DLC. I don't, so there's absolutely no chance...
Don't get me wrong, for me it is crystal clear that you're participating in this (basically great) game, and I'm sure you're trying to help as good as you can, finding solutions or workarounds. I don't blame you personally nor any other of the forum staff. In comparison, the mods in the German forum leaves a short nonsense message twice a week, that's it.
But I definitely blame Ubisoft not to give a single s**t on all these complaints here about an unfinished, unbalanced and since the 1.2.0 partially broken product. And they don't have the qualms to clearly show their focus to generate more cash, when they discount the crap in the store short above 300 Helix points so that the players still have to exchange real, hard earned money if they like to buy useful things like maps. More cats in Englaland, but still flying fishes? Are they serious?
Starting a press conference to praise the upcoming DLC to the skies, not loosing a single word about a game that's not far away from Cyberpunk. At least CDPR apologied for it, even if they lied.
I don't care about bugs in such a large an d complex game, but I surely care how the publisher handles it. I don't wan't all bugs solved within a week or so, but I urgently demand a sign, a gesture that Ubisoft admid what they did here and that they're willing to correct what's going wrong. They don't need to come up with presents, but they need to come up with respect for their real investors: each player here that paid so much money for a game that looks so great in every preview, that feels great while you're in game and do nothing but look around and that feels like a pain in the a** when you start playing it, trying to complete it and reach the goals given.

As the Ostara Festival has now ended, we are now marking the issue wherein players experienced increased crashes due to the Ostara Festival as resolved.
If you are still encountering crashes in-game, please check the megathread list for a similar thread and share your report there so we can investigate further. You can also make a thread of your own if you are unable to find a megathread that matches the issue you're encountering. When opening a new thread, please include as much information about the crashes you're encountering as possible.
Alternatively, you're welcome to open a support ticket so our team can investigate further. You can open a support ticket in the following ways:
- Via the Ubisoft Support website
- Starting a live chat (please check your regional opening times!)
- Twitter and Facebook
I have so far crashed/frozen 3 times trying the festival brawl. (TWICE on the last fight!).
What a waste of my time.
At this point... I HOPE that the Ostara festival really is ending in 48 hours. It is so buggy and makes being home in Ravensthorpe risky as it will crash at any second.

My game has been crashing a lot since Update 1.2.0. Platform: PC.
The festival activities in the Ravensthorpe are nearly impossible to do because the game crashes every 1-2 minutes.
But it's not only the main camp that seems to be affected. The game crashed 5+ times while doing the main quests and other side activities in Suthsexe.
Prior to Update 1.2.0, I experienced 2 or 3 games crashes tops (time played: >100 hours).

I'm trying hard not to laugh... This game is unplayable now. I'm on PS 4.
For the community's sake, I'll play along and let it be known that my settlement was fully customized before the update patch.
I think there are a couple of things that players of this game should consider. No, I'm sorry, I do not have the cure for the unplayable embarrassment this game is. What I do have is something to improve your life.
First, consider that this crashing issue isn't just on a single platform or related to a single action. It's all the time, completely random, and on all platforms. Don't you think that an issue this large would be something that was caught during the testing phase? You're exactly right. WE are the testing phase. And not only are we not being paid, we're actually paying THEM to test THEIR game and PROVIDE their feedback (settlement decorations, etc.)This became obvious to me once I read that the devs want more feedback on the problem. Congrats, players. You have attained the dream job of being video game testers! I bet you never guessed it was so easy, or that you would have to pay to do it! What a time to be alive. Thanks Ubisoft for taking my money in exchange for such an abysmal experience!
Now, how about the absolute disrespect Ubisoft threw by adding more cats yet refusing to fix 2 large fish that have been a problem since LAUNCH, and this problem prevents completion of an achievement. Cats. That's what Ubisoft chose to pay their devs to do. Not fix broken for 7 months fishing. And, they were so proud of it that they put it at the top of the update notes . Never mind that there are only 2 black bears in the whole game and barely a handful of reindeer...also ach Tied. But hey, who cares about achievements when there are more cats about? What a "f$#k you" to the players. What a WASTE of dev time and company resources. I mean, who thought this was a good idea anyway?? That person should be fired IMMEDIATELY...along with the clown that approved it.
If you think these things aren't on purpose... Just remember ppl are getting paid (not you or I, we're the ones paying them and lining their share-holders' pockets) to make changes in this game. The simple fact is that Ubisoft is so overconfident that enough ppl keep playing and start playing that they will still report a hefty profit from this game.
I personally think they should face a class action for shady and unethical business practices. It's been a long time since I've heard of an update patch making the whole circus shut down, in any game. No, this was not tested. Abysmal.
Maybe instead of supporting this clown show, we should demand our money back? Overwhelm their customer support lines? Stop buying their unfinished games? Just a thought. This borders on extortion. Period. The only difference is that I'll walk around in better mental health and more $ if I DON'T pay them anymore money and simply move on with my life.
Since we all have more time on our hands while the game is unplayable - a game we paid for - perhaps now is a great time to get off the wagon and do something, or play something, else.
I've had my final transaction with this company. I won't pay them to disrespect me or to do their jobs for them.

now that we an eta on fix lets just "hope" that it would not end up like yule. The problem was ignored for about 20 days after it was just puff gone.
This is far worse that the Yule festival bugs like being drunk all the time. This is straight up crashing on all platforms. I cannot see how this wasn't caught in testing. Ubi, you need to address this ASAP with a hotfix, not wait weeks for a patch.

While playing the new Festival quest. Game will freeze up tgen kick out and return to main start screen. Can not play for more than 10 minutes at a time. It takes longer to wait for reload and restart than time to actually play. I have already read that P.C. players are experiencing this, Again, but somehow Ubisoft has found a way to now have x box now do it. Why, why, why....

On a PC, crashed twice before I even started the festival. I just when to check out changing the look of my gear. Crashed before I got there, and crashed when I left and went to the store to get more arrows.
UGH! Please push an update quick!

In case anyone missed it. They have pushed out a hotfix. The hot fix disables all settlement customizations and you cannot complete the Norvid quest to customize the village.
