@max18400 But you have to be honest here. AC2 didn't had a huge historical story. The history was just "existing" basically. It conveniently helped the plot sometimes etc. but it wasn't the main focus. Same basically with Black Flag. It only showed a very narrow perspective of pirate history (mostly Blackbeard and his crew)
You could basically make 4-5 games like Black Flag to tell the whole story of things happening during that age.
I feel like AC Valhalla does tell us way more history than AC2 did tbh. Which is why I want a second season pass with at least 1 DLC in England tbh. I want MORE of it because it is so good. I want them to tell me more of this because they delivered a very interesting story. (I read most of the actual history during AC Valhalla by now and they did not stick 100% to the actual history but this fits AC because it is telling "the real history" and not the one we believe in today because it is the most likely version etc.)
So if they make a poll about second season and having more England stuff count me in
@max18400 They could do a 2nd season pass And maybe it's just bugged. Considering you can only complete the game 94%. Something IS missing in the game currently. Either it was cut or it is bugged. The seer also foreshadows that the village will burn and people will die if Eivor continues. So maybe it will come with a free update later?
@imaginaryruins One thing I observed in Odyssey with side quests is that they often have the exact same face as other side quest NPCs. Sometimes I saw the same face for 2 side quests after another and first thought "Huh? This guy again, wow" until I read the persons name and saw it was supposed to be someone else. As Valhalla doesn't have these side quests any longer with dialouge and dialouge options etc. (at least most world events don't have them) I didn't recognize seeing the same faces. I am sure they reused them here too. But as there is no focus on their faces and dialouge my eyes don't catch that immersion breaking moment.
@max18400 The personal Eivor story arc basically begins with Sigurd rescueing Eivor and ends with Eivor rescueing Sigurd. What happens after the last Modern Day section is just an epilogue. Mainly to finish off the Order and Settlement story.
I feel the personal ending for Eivor was satisfactory. I wanted to play more Ezio and in Rome after AC2. They went that way with Brotherhood. So I felt like the story wasn't finished yet too with AC2.
I felt the same with nearly every AC game. They could all continue. Especially Origins. Many people would have loved a second game with Bayek.
And yea, I am all for Eivor getting the Ezio Treatment (getting sequels)
@max18400 There are only 5 side quests in total...
And story isn't just about the ending. The ending is in modern time. The story started with Layla going into the animus spoiler
Compare it to AC2. Ezios story wasn't finished obviously. Same with Altair in AC1. The reason why we go back in history isn't to get a satisfactory historical ending but to get something in modern time we expect there to be.
Of course I would wish for a second game with Eivor or a 2nd Season Pass. I like Eivor. But I don't need to see where his/her story ends to be satisfied. As the story is connected and that's exactly what I expect from an AC game. I would be fine with "the Ezio Treatment" for Eivor.
@guest-udh6e0gf Can't share your opinion.
Landscapes are awesome, I love the fighting, Parkour oppurtunities are back (mechanics are broken since Origins and still not fixed), story is extremly superior to Odysseys. I had to stop playing Odyssey and come back a year later to finish it. Enjoyed Valhalla from beginning to end. Side missions are nearly non existant but what's there is way better than anything you can find in Odyssey. (Randvi date, Petra mushroom trip etc., side quest unlocking "Mans best friend" ability)
I am so much looking forward for the DLCs
Edit: The problem at hand is more that you can't imagine that other people enjoy the game. This is a you problem.
@quinch1199 I personally grew very attached to AC. Didn't like Origins extremly much but the AC in it was still good and so I was OK with it having some RPG elements.
Odyssey had even worse RPG elements. (I consider none of the three games as a RPG anyway. RPGs are way more than some levelling and loot)
And the worst part: The AC stuff was so bad.
Valhalla was the last chance for them to show me that my love for the franchise still can be satisfied. If they hadn't pulled that stunt off (and they did) I wouldn't buy any AC game any longer. For eternity.
I still feel bad about Odyssey but Valhalla did try to fix some of the lore "bending" stuff Odyssey did. I consider most parts of Odyssey as non canon. They wouldn't affect anything coming up now anyway after Valhalla set a new path for the future of Isu, modern day and AC. They basically ended the Layla/Mythology trilogy and showed us the beginning of what is to come.
Edit: There are now not really any pantheon left anyway. So expect next AC to not have any mythology. Or they may revisit ancient periods of time like Rome. But I suspect next game will play in Persia/Iran. (Its hinted at the last note added to the hidden ones bureau after you finish their story)
@vexxsis Exactly what I think. These are games and meant for entertainment. You can get offended by stuff and decide to not play any longer and not buy products of the developer ever again (or if you are lucky get a refund) or you can make an educated buy and read reviews beforehand and listen to people who got offended before you and then decide to not buy it. It's also a way more powerful message to not buy something instead of whining about something on social media. Not every game is suited for every person.
I believe OP wanted to point out the hypocrisy of Ubisoft when it comes to the change they made in the description of the Zealot and I think he actually made his point brilliantly and hilariously good. If we can't have NPC which are disfigured according to their description we shouldn't have black out drinking games either.
But maybe I am wrong and this isn't sarcasm and OP is dead serious?
Edit: And to elaborate a bit more about the hypocrisy part. If Ubisoft changes the description they really should remove the drinking game as it is way more integral part (and will be seen by a lot more people) and is at least as "problematic" if not even more "problematic" than the description. My preferred outcome is for Ubisoft to just don't care. Not about the drinking game neither about the zealot description.
@longjohn119 And according to the known Issues thread half of the issues won't be fixed in the mid december patch. They are still under investigation and not confirmed to be fixed.

@quinch1199 Just that all the AC fans wont be buying that other game and they will have double the development cost for the same income probably. They WANT the AC fans to buy the game. That's why there is a modern day because a huge portion of AC fans want modern day. At least enough that market research showed them that they need to add it in to make enough money.
@evilhippo Like I said: You can do that. Skip the anamolies, you don't need to do them. The ending of it is not interesting for you at all if you are not into Order vs Hidden Ones, Templars vs Assassins and Isu vs Human rebels (and allies).
@Raski0611 Why should I pay more for what I want? How about they add more stories in the history period and more RPG stuff with DLCs. Nice, aye? You can then pay extra 40 bucks to get the stuff you want. They can also add some historic armors and stuff for 500 helixpoints or so. Ubisoft should really think about it.
