    Hello there!
     
    I'd like to reach out to you all with an update. I'm happy to announce that the development team intend to deploy a fix for "War in the North" in TU 1.2.2. This update will be deployed 15 June, 2021 at 2 PM CEST / 8 AM ET.
     
    If you are still encountering issues with "War in the North" following TU 1.2.2, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can take a closer look. Please include a video that shows the following:

    • You have the latest Title Update installed on your platform. You can view this information in the opening game menu in the bottom right-hand corner.
    • That the issue continues to persists in-game following this update.

     
    Additionally, please ensure that you have an up-to-date save uploaded to the cloud. We can then pass these reports to the development team for further investigation.
     
    Thank you! 😊

    So glad I'm not the only one! For the past few days I have been completing all the side missions and achievements.

    Same. This needs fixing ASAP. Game-breaking bugs like these should never make it past testing.

    @ghostsreaper Downloaded the update hoping it would fix it - still won't go somewhere to "get away from envious ears".

    OKAY I FIXED IT but it sucked to do. Basically I shot Halfdan in the head with arrows (has to be a hunter bow/hunter arrows - predator/light don't work) until he staggered up the stairs. This took about 60 arrows, maybe more, but once he got to where he was supposed to be the speech bubbles disappeared and I could talk to him and continue the quest.

    Hello,

    My game / cloud save file became bugged after starting the quest, "The War in the North". I reached the point where I tried speaking to Halfdan in the castle, but was told to partake in some of the festivities first as he did not want to speak in the presence of envious ears. My game then crashed right after I started a game of Orlog and the save file automatically opens with my character, stuck on the Orlog screen, and Halfdan refuses to move further up in the castle. I have tried fast travelling, doing other quests, coming back and Halfdan is still standing on the same spot and stuck repeating the same line. Is there any known fixes to this? My last manual save file was over 9 hours ago relative to this cloud save file and I do not want to restart and play through 4 or 5 more areas and do all those raids again. Thank you everyone.

    I did what Halfdan asked and engaged in activities. Once I finished, Eivor says its time to speak to Halfdan in private. When I go to speak to Halfdan, he says we need to speak in private, but he won't walk to the area where we're supposed to talk. He just stays in place, I can't progress the quest.

    @spalinabean ok my problem is that Halfdan is already upstairs with his dog and just pacing back and forth without the interact button available.

    I ‘mingled’ in the party and did every option available but every time I talk to Halfdan, he repeats the same line and doesn’t move an inch.

    I know he is supposed to go to the roof and I am supposed to meet him but he just stays on the second floor and stays there. I’ve tried resetting, meditating, putting on the cloak, shooting arrows at him, etc but to no avail.

    for more details: my quest description states “speak to Halfdan” and “Halfdan will only speak in private”

    Help! Thanks in advance.

    Halfdan won't go to his room so we can speak in private, he is just standing still. I already completed all the side activies in the castle, and halfdan just stands there and says we need to speak in private it but wont actually move.

    I have the same bug. I didn't have an issue with Orlog, but I did complete all the festivities, and Eivor even says time to speak to halfdan. Halfdan won't actually move to the private meeting. Very frustrating.

    Hi, I just spoke to someone at Ubisoft and they suggested posting here as they can't find any solution for the specific bug I have. I'm at Chapter 1 of War in the North, in Halfdan's room in Donecastre, and I'm unable to speak to him or trigger a scene, though he has the floating Quest/Celtic Knot above his head. He just paces with his dog. I've reloaded older games, closed the application, rebooted the PS4, etc. I've retraced the steps going back to the cliff where I'd spoken to Faravid but nothing helps. As far as I can see, as soon as I enter the room or get close to him, it should have this happen: "As you arrive, a scene will play to complete the quest." So, story and game are stopped cold until fixed.

    Hello there @LevBeard! Welcome to the forums 🙂

    Thanks for taking the time to report this. I'm sorry to hear that you're unable to interact with Halfdan to begin this quest. Thank you for letting us know what you have tried to resolve the issue, such as reloading older saves and retracing your steps, and for including an image.

    The development team are aware of this issue, and they are currently investigating further. I've passed your report along so they can take a closer look. If we require any additional information from you, we will reach out within this thread.

    In the meantime, I would recommend keeping an eye out within the News & Announcements forum for future updates.

    Thanks! 😊

    Thanks, here are some other references I found to this on your forums in case it helps to pinpoint it: https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/82397/stuck-on-quest-war-in-the-north?lang=en-US

    Including this one, describing my problem exactly, from Nov. 20, 2020: Stuck on quest : War in the north https://discussions.ubisoft.com/post/472032

    From what I've read, a cut scene apparently needs to be triggered to end this quest but I cannot find a way to trigger it.
