    They didn't have anything tall you could jump off though, just a bunch of tents.

    I had to search the store, I think, filter by PS5 games and download Valhalla from there. The icon for the PS4 game still comes up in the recently played menu, but opening that just prompts for it to be downloaded. Can go to full game library, filter by PS5 games and start Valhalla from there though. All in all, it's a buggy mess right now.

    @theguyfromspark was that the disc or digital version? I'm having trouble with the disc, but I haven't heard any of any problems with the digital upgrade.

    Early days for me but so far combat feels weightless and very unpolished. How can they not get this right at this stage? I see no improvement over Odyssey which had horrendous combat. Come on Ubi ffs!

    Just invent some things to jump off. Trees. Really big tents.

    Late in the game they are yes, had a few that need a key but they key doesn't spawn. Clearly shows on being on an enemy, you kill them and no key so you have icon on your map taunting you. Also got a side quest that needs a key to open a door and the damn thing hasn't spawned.

    it is a bit too buggy at times. Had twice the situation where I coudnt solve the riddle at all, and after 10 minutes I lost patience, went to the door and just started hitting it. After about 15 swipes I managed to break the blockage behind the door hitting trough the door.

    In case that is the solution for the riddle, then its poor game design. Cause if you see the red blockage, you automatically feel that you have to solve to get around it, or shoot it from behind somewhere, not breaking it from the front.

    has anyone visited Vinland?

    are you immortal in Vinland or did I experience a 2 hour immortal bug?

    I've had problems just walking up steps let alone getting through windows. Thoroughly enjoying it, because Assassins Creed and Vikings, but it is broken as fuck.

    @Bosscat1980 awesome, thanks. I won't try it on AC because I'll probably lose the berserker dlc (which will mean my save won't work), but I'll give it a go on Watch Dogs.

    @Big-Swiss I have visited it. I don't know about immortal all I know is I was rescued by locals when I lost hp the one time.

    Also I love that region and it gave me feels back to something something.

    Things what I have learnt watching videos so you don't have to:

    Spamming heavy attack on the way down will let you jump from any height without taking damage.

    Powder arrow trap lets you blow up walls without having to hunt for red pots.

    This game really does grow on you the more you play it, Iíve just got to England and started to raid places. This is a top notch game

    Yeah the opening is very weak, much more enjoying it since getting to England. You are sort of thrown into a fairly big open world from the get go and it does little to guide you or introduce you to mechanics/world map etc. It should have been a smaller more curated opening.

    Anyone else found the enemy AI to be very questionable? Every bit battle has seen at least a couple of enemies just stand there doing nothing, waiting for me to walk up and hit them over the head with an axe. Playing on XSX.

    Found some more fantastic easter eggs and I've also got a particular weapon after some tough questing. I didn't fast travel or anything and relied on old school exploration.

    Not gonna lie, this has been a bit of an obsess game for me. 80 hours in and still so many mysteries/wealth/artefacts to find.

    Loving the lore connections. This is fast becoming one of my favourite 'verses. It's rich in history, which I love, plus fun twists.

    God help me I'm downloading this now. I was going to wait for the inevitable discount, but I need my junk gaming NOW damnit.

    I gave into temptation and bought it - despite having several games already on the go (thanks quick resume). I don't think I've ever seen so many options to choose before starting a game before.

    I really liked this region as well, I enjoyed the specific weapons, the armor, really liked the outfit. So i finished the whole region within 1.5 hours. I did have that immortal bug, but after having the seer story bug, I didn't mind it.

    It was a combined bug, the game smacked the difficulty up to max, and made me immortal. So I was having these enemies two-hitting me, but a soon as my lifebar was down, I got a new one instantly, so I was spamming attacks while my healthbar was flippering back and forth.

    after vinland I quit the session and the next day everything was normal again when I went back to England.

    What I really didn't like, was the fact I spent so much time getting the whole vinland outfit, but can never ever wear it again in the game. Stupid decision.

    I am still playing the game. enough things make me enjoy it, but every half hour I experience something that is stupid. Like not getting trough a window for 2 minutes.
