    Paris dlc is really a disappointment it lacks allot of good gameplay wich england had and even the druid dlc. Its also very small aswell in size. Also ubisoft ruined the new short sword type, in animation its actually just a dagger one and it looks really off. I prefer the swords in odessey.

    Level 330 and 2 more regions left on map. As of lvl 200 have gotten too powerful and the game seems to have become too easy. The last region I dealt with, Snotinghamshire, was tedious and not as enjoyable as earlier parts. I see what the developers are doing, they are trying to present this as a grand epic game with a deep majestic storyline, but oftentimes at the expense of gameplay. Didnt care for the parts where have to speak with many ppl and climb mountains or look in hidden caves to find them. Felt like I was some errand boy plodding along to fulfill some devs grand vision of the game.

    Aside from that and other annoyances (dont get near flames), this may be my favorite AC title so far. Great voice acting by Eivarr and intelligent dialogue throughout the game. Loved the assassination and stealth parts. And the weapons. The Lagertha Dane Axe maxed out is formidable. No shield can withstand its blows. I feel almost like in god mode with it. But it may be improperly balanced. Bows are fun too.

    The weapons systems in the game are imo an improvement over past AC games. Fewer weapons to deal with but more focus on upgrading them. Other AC titles seemed to overwhelm you with tons of different weapons that you spend a good part of the time comparing the stats and testing them in battle. Aside from managing them in your inventory.

    When I'm done with the game, I may change my opinion of it. Hope the last 2 regions are not padded with unnecessary story filler or hearing out many NPCs just to extend the game.

    Just a heads up. Since the 1.3.1 patch the game keeps trying to download itself again and keeps corrupting the saves. Well done UBI. It's been a known issue but never affected me until now.

    I spoke to support to get it escalated yesterday and it is not just valhalla as it is doing it on WD legion also

    It only started affecting me after the recent free weekend of WD Legion

    Try to reinstall just ubisoft connect making sure to delete hidden files in local and roaming folders

    I have noticed after doing so the design has changed slightly and now friends and downloads are on the left

    Seems at the moment starting in offline mode after you have it all installed seems to work.

    ^ So you can get to the main menu of the game in offline mode? Never bothered to try that but I will this morning. Also going to unlink from Steam and uncheck auto update of recently played games to see if it stops the redownload of the update. So far it's been only 2 DLs of it so far as of yesterday.

    ^ It worked. When it said Update for my third patch download I went in offline mode and then the Play button replaced the Update button. And the game's running ok so far.

    Haven't played in a while. Still at 96% progress, 167hrs gameplay (really bang for your buck) and 356 power level. The Hitman series has really got me distracted

    Had that too. Opened a Ticket with their Support and they found an error in my System. Worked after that.

    I couldn't get into the game first try after buying it, but have since come back to it - and it's a brilliant game.

    Massive scope, much better dialogue than previous games - really love the broad overarching storyline which creates so many thngs to do. Also like that the pacing of the game takes some time (both player abilities/strengths and for the storyline to flesh out.)

    A GoT type rulers/monarchy/espionage theme, Inquisition type strategy map, all blended into a assassins, Zelda type game play.
    Got to give a shout out to the composer of the music, it is great stuff - the best since Jesper Kyds in assassins creed 2, really sets the mood.

    Still think the overall feel is a little unrefined ie, a bit clunky, and can be a bit 'cartoony' at times (wish it was a bit darker/more mature), but is more than made up for with just how ambitious this game is, and the production values.
    I really think, with the addittion of more RPG elements, slightly more mature storyline and leaning towards adventuring style (as opposed to a Michael Bay action fest) - UBI are on the right track with this latest entry, and I think it is their best game to date.

    Assassin's Creed: Valhalla and Watch Dogs Legion redownloading 29GB and 25GB- Fix for me was to relocated the games folder where those two games are installed.


    Games with problems from UBISOFT Connect list,also there is no offline play in the games either through owned games or ubisoft+ in Canada not sure about other places.
    Degradation - Multiple Games - Platform(s) - September 8 | Ubisoft Help


    Two more games not on the UBI list not working
    Assassin's Creed: Valhalla
    Far Cry Primal- Managed to get this game working 4 times but max gameplay was 13 mintues before disconnection

    1 Game so far without any problems
    Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands

    EDIT: Tried Crack version of a couple games I own,amazing no problems at all.Shame ubisoft been messed up for awhile,like to see them get it fixed soon.
