I've gotta say Ubi... You really screwed up the North. I'm a Geordie so I was excited to explore my area. We have some deeply important areas concerning the Viking invasion up here past York and it's as if you didn't read up on it at all and focused on the south. I'm really not surprised, to be honest...
What about Hexham? The first settlement to ever be pillaged by the Norse in England. Lindisfarne? The very first location that the Norse landed in England. Newcastle (Monkchester)? A very important Northumbrian fort created by the Romans. In 900AD it protected surrounding monasteries from Norse invaders.
It's as if you guys moved Hadrian's wall down to York if I'm honest. So much is missing in Northumbria. Considering how small the map is compared to Odyssey... Yeah. I think these things could have been added. Anyways, too late now. Ironically you guys have a studio here in Newcastle - I'm disappoint.
Hi, not sure if this is an intended 'feature' of the game but I'm getting some serious colour banding whenever I look up into the sky. I've tried messing with HDR settings and SDR settings together to try and solve the issue. Absolutely nothing outright gets rid of it. I've also tried messing with my TV settings. I've tried everything including switching my TV into PC mode. Nothing. I remember having similar issues with Origins but weirdly enough, Odyssey is fine. No colour banding on HDR at all. My TV is LG BX OLED. The banding is only happening whenever I look up Into the sky at day time. No banding in clouds or anything else. Any advice would be appreciated.
In short. This is annoying. It happens far too frequently even if you've already raided the place. Also, the distance between the boat and opportunity that triggers the pausing of singing is too far. You don't have to get close before Eivor halts the crew from singing. It has become rather annoying, especially in Norway. Wonder if anyone agrees?
Not entirely sure if this has been covered so I'm sorry if it has. I've been playing a bit of Origins lately (until the screen tearing in Valhalla has been fixed) and I've noticed how longer the day and night cycle is. It might be just me but It feels better in Origins. I would of preferred a similar day and night cycle to Origins tbh.
As the game goes on I have to admit that the abilities are much better than Odysseys. I wasn't a fan of Odyssey's combat but the more I play Valhalla, the more I feel like I am getting more out of it. Splitting the abilities between ranged and combat was a very good idea. It's not perfect and I had serious doubts at the beginning, but now I'm finding it rather fun. Anybody feel the same or do you think Odyssey had better combat overall?
I've tested this with my Series X hooked up to my TV and my rig with different headphones for each and they both sound 'tinny' I think the word is. My brother and friends have agreed so I know it's not a problem on my end.
I have to be honest here. I'm disappointed with the game overall. It's the final nail in the coffin for me. I've been a life long fan since the very first game back in 2007 and I'm sad to say that the direction they keep pushing towards is sad. Unless they do something groundbreaking for the next title, I'm not going to bother waving my money at it. It really hurts to even admit that as Assassin's Creed has been my favourite franchise.
Obviously this is my personal opinion. If you're enjoying it then I'm happy for you.
Sorry Ubisoft. I see very little improvement from Odyssey.
