Some Assassin's Creed Valhalla players have been running into some troublesome issues in the game lately that have prevented them from advancing onward in a handful of quests. Fortunately, the team at Ubisoft has heard the complaints from players in this regard and has now released a new hotfix that should hopefully rectify the problem for good.
To be specific, four different quests have been giving players issues in Assassin's Creed Valhalla recently -- Old Wounds, Unholy Father, The Thegn of Lincoln, and Falling Stars. Each of the four quests has had a distinct problem of its own which is where the annoyance for many has been found. Old Wounds and The Thegn of Lincoln wouldn't allow Eivor to interact with certain other key characters. In Unholy Father, this problem was also found with an unnamed NPC. And in Falling Stars, one key character sometimes wouldn't follow the player which would keep things from continuing onward.
Now that this new hotfix has arrived, though, each of the four quests in Assassin's Creed Valhalla should be able to be seen through to the end. To make sure that your own version of the game has been fixed, however, Ubisoft says you'll first need to create a manual save and then shut down Assassin's Creed Valhalla entirely. Once you do this, reload your save and all four quests should now work perfectly.
This fix should be live right now across all of Assassin's Creed Valhalla's platforms, which includes PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Conversely, if you'd like to read more about the game's latest update, you can check it out right here.
