I have merged together several threads about being unable to interact with Hrorek into a single megathread. This will help us to keep all information and updates from an investigation in one location. I apologise if any ongoing discussions have been disrupted by this.
The development team are aware of this issue and they are investigating this further. If you have encountered this issue, please could you provide us with the following information:
- What happened before/after attempting to complete this mystery? Was Hrorek already dead before starting the mystery, or did he die during it?
- If you're able to, any additional images or video that show Hrorek spawned into the world dead would be very helpful for the investigation.
We can then pass this information along to the development team for further investigation.
@TreblaOnai - Thank you for sending us a video. This has been passed on to the development team for a closer look.
@Ubi-Borealis , To answer your questions:
- Mission started correctly
- When both me and Hrorek meet the Bandits, he got killed by mistake. As I was killing the bandits, he was close to one and died also from the same hit that killed the bandit.
- I tried many things - out of animus back in, changed apperance from Male to Female, returned to Atlas to other areas, did other side activities, etc... - but does not matter, when I go back, he is lying there Dead back where he was beside the note when we originally started the quest.
- Funny enough, the bandits I need to kill - they re-spawn and are alive

I have starded Desperate Bounty at my first map cleanup, and Hrorek was alive. NPC started quest and rode with me to ambush site where he accidentally got killed. Now he remains dead by his horse where quest should start,I can read note on the tree, interact with his body and have no interaction with his horse. Jarl is also inactive on ambush site and bandits respawn only if i change country location via atlas, but always without the named one. You can see more details on my video. Please add to known issues list and solve this problem. Game is lit, but this bug locks my Platinum after playing for 130+ hours.

It takes "a little bit" to long to find a solution for such easy issue. If you have no idea how to fix it, remove this mystery from requirements to obtain trophy.
I've got plats in every modern AC game and love these stories, but each were bugged and this one is still under development. What's the point of buying game for 40$ when it's not completed?
