@ubi-spud Alright it's the controller vibrations that cause the issues. Disabling them completely fixed it. Both vibration options (light and normal) are broken and need to be looked at. This fixes the issue for both Hybrid mode and Photo mode. Could you maybe pass this on to the team ?
@fimbulthulur Dude what are you on about ?
"And also this is a [censored] viking game. A viking, historically and 99.9% of the time, is a male. A brute male. Please stop indulging feminists and pro-women movements, while creating games, bcs this way you are making politics, instead of entertainment."
[removed] The devs didn't indulge anyone except the share holders and upper management by adding male Eivor. He's the one who was shoe-horned in, not female Eivor. That's the vision the devs had for the game, female Eivor as the main protag, no one else. Just like they did with Origins and Odyssey but in both of these, the dude was added in to make people like you happy.
You wanna blame someone ? Blame marketing, they're the ones who did a [censored] poor job at marketing the game properly, not the devs.
"I am not talking about the game plot politics, how on earth you ended up there?" Assassin's Creed has always been a political game, the Assassin Brotherhood is very progressive for their time by allowing female warriors and women to hold high ranks. This franchise has always been very political. That's how.
"But when the game starts by stating that the team is multicultural, different orientations and genders - it becomes political." This message has been in literally every Assassin's Creed ever, why are you getting triggered at it only now ? It's a message that shows for literally 5 seconds and you're making a fuss about it, settle down and close your eyes next time it shows up.
No one is enforcing their views on you either, you bought the game, nobody forced you to do so.
They did not take away the choice, you still get to play as male Eivor and switch whenever you want to. They are also both canon, only thing is that female Eivor has 80% of the game for her and male Eivor has the rest. It's up to you if you want to say [censored] the canon by picking male Eivor the entire game, no one stops you from doing that.
I know most Vikings were male, never said otherwise, but the keyword is "most", some were female. You said it yourself 99.9%. Eivor is that 00.1%.
I'm using the "Hybrid" option for my input mode and whenever I play with the controller and switch to the keyboard to do a quicksave or even take a screenshot, literally anything, the game will freeze for around 2 seconds (or less) and the audio is muted during that time, sometimes even creating synch issues during cutscenes. Same thing happens when I go from keyboard back to the controller. The switch messes up the game for a few seconds. The Hybrid input mode basically doesn't work properly.
With photo mode it does the same thing but right after leaving photo mode. It happens even if I don't switch input btw.
This is something that didn't happen in Odyssey so I hope this gets fixed ASAP, I like taking pictures and I'm used to quicksaving every few minutes so yeah this is kinda game-breaking to me.
The game is filled with bugs, including game-breaking ones such as corrupted saves or bugged missions stopping a lot of us from playing. When are we getting a patch to fix all this ? Also why is Reda's shop not showing anything ? Would be nice to know if this is intended because y'all are doing server-side updates or if it's yet another bug. The lack of communication is getting really annoying.
Seems like a lot of the fixes either didn't apply or straight up don't work.
- Looking at photos on the map still causes connection errors. The error says that Ubi servers received too many requests in quick successions.
- Runes are not separate between armor and weapon categories.
- Shooting arrows from the ship still does not consume arrows.
- Detection in distrust areas still seems inconsistent (instantly getting detected, being detected faster than some other times even though distance from the enemy is the same)
- Photo mode: Effect values cannot be modified with arrow keys, may it be the ones on keyboard or XOne controller. WASD works though.
- Photo mode: Territory panel still shows up in Ravensthorpe
- Photo mode: Changing values after choosing one of the filters will still completely remove the filter's settings
- White Lady of Tamworth world event still doesn't end the right way. It counts as done but when I go back to it, the door leading inside the tower doesn't open even though the woman lies dead in front of it with the soldier crying over her body, I can't get the loot and read the letter in it.
- Still getting a bunch of audio issues too. Like one in the intro videos where it sounds like someone's moving.
- Some hairstyles still clip through the hood (when not in use)
- In 50 hours of playtime I had only one crash. Now in only 2 hours after the patch I've had two, one after booting the game and getting to the Ubisoft intro video and another after alt-tabing.
- NPCs who use the small boats are now all gone, the boats are now on the river with no one on them. Pre-update, the AI for those was really stupid (rowing into walls), needs to be looked at.
- I randomly got 1200xp after loading my save for the first time after the update, no idea why. I was in Ravensthorpe when it happened.
This is all stuff I found in around 2 hours of gameplay, I'm sure there are way more issues that are not fixed despite the patch notes saying otherwise and probably a bunch of new bugs.
More QoL changes that need to happen:
- Sailing near raid areas should not interrupt songs and stories. Right now it's nearly impossible to go somewhere without having a song or a story be interrupted 15 times.
- Ability to sell iron and leather
- A Transmog feature to make armors looks like others or to use downgraded looks of an armor (as advertised before release)
- Some NPC haircuts should be made available to the player
- Ability to hide the hidden blade when not in use, like other weapons
@fimbulthulur You do know this game involves a [censored] ton of politics right ? It's literally what war is all about, politics. The modern story even involves climate change and stuff. Also this is what the devs wanted to do. Stop being a neckbeard. Every time a woman is in a game neckbeards like you go "mUh PuHLiTiCS". Deal with it, snowflake.
Marketing is trash for not putting the canon character (female Eivor) on the forefront though I totally agree with that. Also they didn't lie, you always can choose who you play, unless you pick the non-canon path. They don't owe you [censored] and they don't have to fix anything relating to this non-issue.
"And also this is a f***ing viking game. A viking, historically and 99.9% of the time, is a male. A brute male."
Damn you sound like Serge Hascoet right now, massive yikes. You said it yourself, 99.9%, I guess Eivor is that .1%
You know it's funny to me that you have problem with a female misthios (because Kass wasn't part of the spartan army) or a female Viking when both are more than plausible, rare but plausible. But meanwhile I don't see you complaining about the crazy powers Kass had, or the presence of stone castles, plate armor and two handed swords in Valhalla. Immersion matters only when it comes to you being able to play as an alpha male huh ?
Ubisoft is pushing this because it's still needed, sexism, racism, etc... are still rampant, especially in the gaming world. They're being hypocritical about it that's for sure but hopefully that changes.
"Morgan Freeman was once asked, how do we stop *racism* - the very EASY answer to this is, STOP talking about it." Yeah and that's a [censored] take. Everybody knows you can't just ignore a problem till it goes away. Look at the US. Yes they had a black president, look at how the country is going now. Stuff got so much worse when it comes to racism.
"Valhalla is a disaster" "currently having a blast playing CP2077" LMAO now you're just trolling. Valhalla ain't perfect but come on.
I get the same issue with the dailies. Only one pops up even though I accept both. A good workaround is to restart your game and instead of going to Reda, go to one of the kids that give the quests, like the one in front of the Grantebridge longhouse. I'm always able to get the second daily that way. This is on PC, dunno if it'll work on PS4, I'm pretty sure it will though.
The game is too easy at the moment. Especially if you're one to explore everything you'll quickly be overleveled which will make all future content a joke.
Here's what a Nightmare difficulty should play like:
(This is the most important)All attacks should have much tighter dodge/parry windows: Right now it's too easy to dodge or parry, you can dodge early as hell and the attack will still miss. It's really noticeable after playing games like Dark Souls/Sekiro or even For Honor. So many moments where I'm like "Ye I should've died right there". The game is too forgiving, even on the hardest difficulty. Reduce the I-frames.
Enemies should hit harder: No one shots or even two shots but they should deal more damage so they are an actual threat, unlike right now where they barely remove 10% of my HP. This would also make stealth a more viable option.
Enemies should be a lot more aggressive: Most of the time enemies will not attack for a good 10 seconds, it makes the fights boring and it feels like they're just waiting to die, it's boring.
Fix the AI: Sometimes there are enemies that just stand there, doing nothing. Mainly archers, they refuse to help their friends. Some will also back walk so far that they end up leaving the combat area. This mainly happens when many enemies are involved.
@fimbulthulur They can't be both canon at the same time, that would mean they were both in one place at the same time, like twins, makes no sense. Female Eivor is the canon choice for the real world stuff, she was the real Eivor. Male Eivor is canon for the dreams and mythical stuff, he's a figment of Odin's DNA. Technically there was never a male Eivor, just Odin, but if Ubisoft marketed it that way it could've been some massive spoilers. That's why I'm saying 80/20.

@ubi-mark No it's not corrupted data, it's a bug. My save has never been corrupted and if it did it would tell me. I literally said that I already tried verifying the files. Twice. Also I can't contact support, your damn site is giving me an infinite loading after I log in.
@ubi-keo I went through the troubleshooting twice already, once not too long after release and another a few days ago trying to fix some crashes I've been getting. Didn't help.
The error in the screenshot is the one I get when I try to look at too many images. I don't get an error when photos I took disappear from the map, they just disappear.
Basically it goes like this: I take a few pictures, pictures are showing up, all is good.
A few minutes or even hours later and the pics are gone. Sometimes it also happens when rebooting the game. It's kinda random. Again this has been something happening since release.
As for the other issue, the one that gives me the error, you can see in the video it only took looking at one pic for me to get it.
And then this one it took 10 pics til I got the error.
Like I said it's really random. And as you can see I took my time to look at the pics, definitely not what I would class as "in quick succession".
All that being said the pictures end up coming back after a few minutes, until I look at them and they disappear again.
That's all I got.
Some of the photos I take show up on the map (as they should) but after a few minutes they disappear, my internet is fine and this is also not something that happens in Odyssey. This is an issue that has been going since release, thought it'd get fixed quickly, I guess not.
Also I'm always getting an error when looking at photos on the map, after the ~6th one it gives me this error:
Apparently this issue was fixed in a previous patch, it didn't. It also says "too many request in quick succession" yet I sometimes get this error after looking at one pic.
@ubi-wan This didn't help and I knew it wouldn't since the issue comes from the game. I play a lot of other games, some more demanding than Valhalla one of them being AC Odyssey and they never or very rarely crash. I sent crash reports again, are these even useful or am I just wasting my time sending them ? I literally just crashed again 20mins ago, just went to check something on the map and it crashed. Again I'm pretty sure it's somehow related to the menus.
I also got a new bug today. I got thrown far up in the sky all of a sudden, travelled half of England in less than 5 seconds and died. Twice. Didn't take a video but I will next time, I do have screenshots though. Wasn't doing anything particular and it wasn't in a specific spot. It happened in northern Ledecestrescire, on the "island" where the offering statue is located.
Definitely not as bad as a crash to desktop, at least the view was nice.
@ubikobold I really hope this is also gonna fix the frequency at which the music plays. The game should never go more than 2 minutes without ambient music as long as the music frequency is set to high. Such a shame how Jesper Kyd, Sarah Schachner and Einar Selvik created an amazing soundtrack but we can barely hear it.
Also the official soundtrack albums for the game have a bunch of shanties in Old Norse, how come these aren't in the game ?
We only have the English version of these.
And tracks like the one playing when we have to save Oswald (Hrafnsmal) should also be used during usual combat. It' such a good one, but again, it's barely used. I think I've only heard it during that one battle. Then never again.
Same here, can't see nor buy today's daily item. First time I'm getting this bug. I don't know if today's item is part of the Berserker pack but the Berserker Cloak is still showing up in the weekly selection for me.
I also do not own the Ultimate Edition, I have the Gold edition.
Usually happens right after making a hard save, if I press the back button while it's saving, the game will crash. Sometimes it'll also crash while the menu is loading right after opening it. Also opening the menu right after loading my save will often crash the game too, nearly every time actually, unless I wait a bit. It seems like there's something about the menus that make my game crash really often. Especially if I open/close them while the game is saving.
Then of course there's the random crashes while playing, usually while fighting. It's fairly rare though but still annoying when it happens.
I've tried checking the files and reinstalling, still getting the crashes. I've sent at least 10 to 15 crash reports by now, those might help.
It's most likely not my specs but I'll put them here anyways just in case:
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 19042)
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz (8 CPUs)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
The game is installed on an SSD with less than a gigabyte of free space, I doubt it but could that maybe causing the issue ?
@gladi8ordude Yeah the AI is really bad this time around. Sometimes when I attack human enemies they literally only step backwards while I fight their mates, sometimes they go so far they end up leaving combat mode. Like they're basically just abandoning their fellow soldiers. Makes no sense. And there's the ones who just stand still. Doubt Ubisoft will fix any of this honestly.
@isuwhat Same problem here. Item is shown as owned in the Opal store but I don't have it in my inventory and the store shows the item as not owned. Definitely a bug. I guess we'll all have to wait a few more weeks to get that damn helmet when it shows up again, this time not bugged I hope...
