Assassin's Creed Valhalla has temporarily removed settlement decorations

By Heidi Nicholas,
Ubisoft is working on a permanent fix for the crashing issues in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and, in the meantime, has temporarily removed settlement decorations. This means some of the quests for Ostara festival won't be completable until the fix arrives.

Ostara festival

The Ostara festival is live now, and runs for the next few weeks until April 8th. It brings back some activities introduced with the Yule festival, as well as new quests and new activities. Completing quests and activities gets you festival tokens to spend on new cosmetics, including some pretty floral hairstyles to make the bulky, brooding figure of Eivor more terrifying than ever. You can also get a rainbow skin for Synin, some floral Ostara tattoos, and themed settlement decorations. However, one Ostara festival quest asks you to decorate the settlement, and this isn't possible at the moment, as Ubisoft has temporarily removed settlement decorations while working on a permanent fix for the crashing issues introduced with Title Update 1.2.0. The permanent fix should arrive some time this week.

The Ostara festival ends on April 8th. Following that, we have the first Valhalla expansion, Wrath of the Druids, on April 29th. Wrath of the Druids takes place in Ireland and revolves around Eivor's investigation into the ancient druid cult known as the Children of Danu. It will also introduce a new style of gameplay as you'll be tasked with defeating ring forts and interfering in Dublin's trading system. In the meantime, you can now claim the free Godly Reward. Ubisoft says the Godly Reward is "a huge thank you" to the community for "playing, discussing, and helping us to improve Assassin's Creed Valhalla" — it gets you Altair's Outfit, the Yule gear set and cosmetics, and 300 opals, for free.

We'll update you when we learn more about the upcoming permanent fix.

I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
