Assassin's Creed Valhalla on PS4
I've had this bug happen quite often, and normally it happens after I clear an area so it doesn't bother me much when they're all running away.
This time however, as soon as I walk toward Canterbury, most of the citizens begin screaming and running, including such npc as the drunk. I'm not trying to fight a bunch of guards because I'd prefer sneaky and clever than brutish and genocidal.
I've reloaded past saves, removed hood and rehooded, and even tried avoiding fighting and killing the multiple ambushes on my way to Canterbury with Hytham. Nothing has changed.
This type of bug has also led to any followers I have fighting all enemies in the area after I get in a squabble with one guard, but not reportedly known to everyone until my companion goes down and I have to step in, which also hurts my preference of sneaking and fighting only when necessary.
Any tips, tricks, or condolences?
