Instead we no loot at all, nothing exciting to do - just raid and murder soldiers to get stuff for a settlement that is empty and void of families and people.
A lifeless world with many empty places where nothing ever happends, i just played some Origins and behold i saw a trade/peasant caravan in the middle of nowhere (2 camels, some sheep and some people walking the desert) and the English coutry sides are EMPTY.
There is absolutely NOTHING exciting in Valhalla that wants me to keep playing, the soulles uninspiring world is the worst part of it, skills are mehh, weapons and armors are boring, runes are pointless and the jomsvikings are immortal (raid is allways WIN - they never die or get injured - why we can store a 100 of them is beyond me).. and collecting *wealth* is *yawn wahtever*.
Nah this game is 60% done, and i am being generous - now 50% into AC Origins (Bayek is a boss) my 2nd run and i am enjoying a wonderful game - maybe after this Odyssey wil be next after allready put 440 hours is - Adrestia ftw !.
Hey Ubisoft have you guys seen the farmers in the Valhalla map, after weeks they still stand still just like many other NPC .. just saying.
Just like someone else mentioned, i have no idea how the economy works in Valhalla, there are hundreds os sheeps and cows just walking around everywhere, would it hurt to get some sheperds with maybe a dog and a whistle ?.
Look at Sciropscire and Glowcestrecire, empty with nothing but cow and sheep.. isn't it exciting ?.
How about 50 warlords everywhere in provinces with their own settlements and some political stuff, you know we have a vikings main hall in the settlement - let us have visitors, some trading.. warlords who want to make use of Eivor and his men to conquer area's.. the stuff we can come up with is allmost endless.
But hey worrk on that store stuff, and forget about the fixes in patches.. right?.
OP has a good point, BUT it matters not to me personally - in Odyssey - Alexios was prime character - my 440 hours says so.. i don't care for female *spartans* because they didn't exist (NOT IN THE FORM OF WARRIORS - PERIOD).
Same goes for Vikings, tho there may be some evidence of female warriors, still i don't see the value of having the choice.. most likely 95% vikings were male.
Doesn't matter how hard Hollywood and Netflix try to change history.
[REMOVED] i have no problem playing female characters - Tomb Raider and Horizon Zero Dawn were EXCELLENT.
And finally UBISOFT has no significance to me anymore, Valhalla is a disaster and didn't make it past 28% and currently having a blast playing CP2077.
Just look what UBISOFT is doing - **the women of ubisoft** - **Global Diversity & Inclusion** - i am European and i don't see why we are still at this point to push this, the USA had a POC president for [censored] sake.
Morgan Freeman was once asked, how do we stop *racism* - the very EASY answer to this is, STOP talking about it.
You see we have a *nasty person* problem also, how do we eradicate this.. well we can't - there will allways be [censored] no matter what, same goes for racism.
Stop the nonsense, and care to make solid games, gamers/customers really don't care how *diverse* your team of developers are Ubisoft !
@nozgame No problem at all - i didn't even leave Kephalonia with Kassandra - nothing wrong with her, she would probably make a fine Mystios, i just didn't care.
And read again, i played several games with *Alpha* women - what are you on about.. also didn't mind playing Aya in Origins.
All these things (sexism - racism) are rampant, no sir they are not .. turn off the teLIEvision and stop listening to CNN / FOX and all the trash propaganda media.
And yeah Valhalla is a dissapointment, end of story.. aint touching it untill some serious overhaul is done on the game.
CP2077 is just a superior game compared to valhalla - fact - no trolling here.
Origins and even Odyssey were superior compared to Valhalla.. the scenery (lands) arn't bad or ugly in Valhalla by no means.. it's just empty and soulles.
There are just not enough people in some places, fishermen, traders along the roads (horse/cart/wagon), patrols, some hunters randomly in forrests should be good and many houses and places are just EMPTY.
This annoys me to such extend that after 1 hour i am bored with the game and stop playing.
Origins was the best world, it is like Ubisoft people went back in time - the mystery of the pyramids/tombs and ISU interaction etc.. just walk around in Alexandria / Memphis or any city, sail a boat on any river or lake mariotis, simply magic.
And i miss the Adrestia, can't help it.. there many things that are not in Valhalla like fighting from horseback that got me some of the BEST fights in Origins (these bloody patrols were everywhere LOL) .
The Valhalla world is for EIvor, just like the Settlement (we have food and drink on the tables in the main building, where are the people / families like the trailer?) .. i don't see it's for the people who actually live there.
We can sit down and have a chunk of bread, that's it .. what's the point.
I like to get surprised, visit a place by the river for example were there is nobody.. and next time there are some dudes fishing or cooking a rabbit.. things like these makes the game SO much better.
A 1000 tiny scipts like this should be in the map.. these days things like this should be possible right?.
Oh man just by this i can go on a very long page rant, but i will just agree with you 100% and only add.. we can choose like to buy or not.
I will NOT buy ubisoft games again, nope sorry.. HUGE PRAISE to them for ORIGINS and ODYSSEY.. i just don't understand why not get the BEST parts of both ACO's and improve/make something spectacular - now we don't have many things like a ship, many armors/weapons, mercenaries, arena, horse fights, relevant senu/ikaros and IMMERSIVE / LIVELY world and so and so and so ... i can go on but nevermind.
Because the majority of people who made Valhalla are most likely *career millenials* with blue hair who have no clue how to make a vibrant, immersive en well thought out RPG.
People who made Origins are just magicians, and even Odyssey deserves ALOT of praise.. really doubt these are the same people who made valhalla.
Or maybe they just got so restricted in their creativity, with the disaster that is AC Valhalla as a result.
Not hating here or even venting, i lost interest in the game weeks ago and will have a look when a latest PATCH will drop but overall.. i am done with this lifeless bore fest of a game at 40%.
