    Hello Vikings!

    Thanks for continuing to update this thread with your experiences of the Ostara festival. As some of you have already noticed, a hot-fix was deployed last night to address the rise of crashing around the Ravensthorpe. Settlement decorations have been temporarily removed as part of this hotfix, and the development team is working on

    Thanks to everyone who provided more information about their settlement decorations. We currently no longer require this additional information. If we need any further information as part of the ongoing investigation, we will reach out within this thread. The development team are also aware that players are experiencing increased crashes outside of the festival area as well, and they plan to release a fix for this sometime in the

    @yesin069 - Thanks for sharing that video and helping @Acedyn22 to find more fireflies!

    @ssakiy & @guest-1gRpQ2iG - Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. 

    We apologise for any disappointment that has been caused. We are unable to make statements on the development team's behalf, but rest assured we have shared the comments and concerns that have been left within the forums.

    If you have any additional questions, please let us know.

    Thanks for pointing out the outside festival issue because there is one.

    Since the start of Ostara festival my game crashed and closed at least 10 times, during the festival quests but also after the second round of the brawl (sometimes even when I just restarted the game and I'm in the settlement for 5 seconds). Also during the brawl the camera is all over the place, it doesn't follow the opponent, and after the fight it glitches during the short cutscene.

    I did run into another glitch after the hotfix, that I previously did not encounter. I couldn't shoot during the archery challenge.

    *I do not have enough "privileges" to post a video. I will try to screen-shot a picture.

    Will not be posting screen shot, photo quality is terrible.

    As far as crashing goes, I have not had any within the hour.

    No crashes since the hotfix (PS4) - thanks

    Just a shame we can't complete one of the quests, and the Drinking Game is glitched

    @bitebug2003 I'm pretty sure based on the two posts that this is a temporary solution and they have plans to launch a better solution next week. Hopefully the better solution returns the customization and the ability to complete the quest related to it.

    @jcar4327 Temporary solution, sure. They can't sell decorations if you can't use them.
    But I expect the permanent solution next month rather.

    Strangely I did everything the festival has to offer in the first 2 hour after they went live and it all worked fine. Those issues with the crashes and visual bugs started appearing some hours later what is really strange. We just don't know what Ubisoft are always doing in the background and I really would prefer playing this game in offline mode to exclude any changes done by them without telling us.

    A singleplayer game shouldn't have events like that, that count on you being online. Ubisoft servers and netcode are known to cause trouble in games so I would prefer they let AC be completely offline. Let the community photos be online and this is it, or make a online mode or game if it is so much needed to have online stuff...

    As always great video from this guy. The post-launch from Valhalla is really terrible at this point. They should really get their stuff together and focus on bugfixes and adding stuff to the flow of the main game (like transmog, more arrows, arrow crafting etc.). Those things would be a millioon times better than any of their events or game modes.

    @yesin069 It seems clear that the crashes are related to the customizations (decorations) and started after doing the decoration event.

    The first quest in the event that i did was the one with changing the settlement decorations and i was able to finish everything without crashes. After some hours i started playing and then the crashes started happening.

    @ubi-borealis @VegasHeart - Would you be able to capture an image or footage that shows the arrow stuck to Eivor's hand after completing the archery contest as well? We can then forward this for investigation.
    • Sorry didnt reply in time,but seems @ Acedyn22 did all the job,so I think we are all good here 🙂
    • Anyways i checked the game today and tried all type of bows today(before starting archery contest)and didnt get any arrows in hand anymore.Maybe it was only one time thing(when u first time playing this)or maybe this happens because after Archery contest i was playing May queen quest and then go back to settlement.Currently i dont have this bug anymore.
    • About fighting contest.Like i said before I noticed bug with the final animation,when u won all the fights,Eivor fall on the ground twice.I make some video with the round 9 and 10 fights and animation bug as well at the end.U can watch from 4:15 just to see this bug only and skip fights.I played 3 times today and this bug still exist.
    • Drinking game animation bug that i show on video still in game.
    • Game still crashes for me,but thanks God not during any contest missions,I able to compleate them and then some crash happens.

    Got downgraded visuals(i did not change the settings), especially eivor, btw just as yule, eivor still has the raven clan armor on even if thats not the one that is equipped, while entering and fighting in the brawl tournament. Fps does not drop, its low! Last mission, which is the decoration mission, for ostara is not accessable for me(i understand thats a part of the hotfix). Except the armor thing i hope these are temporary stabilisations due to the hotfix, otherwise i am curious to see how much lower can get moneys worth.

    Just had a CTD on Xbox One S after the decorations have been removed. Same as before; frozen screen with background sounds continuing, the sound stops about 30 seconds later, then comes back maybe 20 seconds later, then about 30 seconds later it goes to the home screen.

    Since the hotfix, I have not had any serious problems with my game or have it crash. (I'm on PS4) I've been on for a little more than 2 hours now and no crashes!

    However, I'm still having the same minor issue during the drinking game with Braun. He is behind the crowd and facing away from me during the competition. After I win, the camera still flies around the festival/drinking area like crazy. Doesn't really bother me as it eventually catches up to Eivor, but it's still happening.

    Also, I've been able to get through all 10 fight rounds twice!

    Just so happy that I have been able to play this game for a decent amount of time today with hardly any issues! 👐

    @Ubi-Borealis & @Ubi-Mark
    Hit a brick wall figuratively.
    While participating in the Viking Brawl, I finished the fight, but was stuck in the arena with my opponent. NPC wasn't responsive to my attacks and I couldn't leave the event. I had to restart my console & haven't played since. Will attach pictures to thread.

    And can someone please answer this question for me (& whomever else is concerned) What happens to leftover tokens? Are we going to be able to use saved Yule Tokens for the next Yuletide? Same with Ostara and etc. I noticed that in the beginning of Ostara release, my Yule Tokens were renamed Festival Tokens, and then my leftover Yule Tokens disappeared from my inventory when I started the Ostara Festival.
