Did you know that there’s a specific type of dynamic quest in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that the vast majority of players will probably never see? They’re called ‘Avenge’ quests, and they’re triggered when Eivor comes across the dead body of a fellow Viking out in the open world.
These bodies represent other Valhalla players who were killed in their own game by a nearby enemy.
After inspecting the corpse, you’re tasked with hunting down said enemy, and once they’re dead, you get some minor rewards like xp and silver.
Those of you who played Assassin’s Creed Origins may recall that title featured these same online quests.
But again, the problem here is that these missions of vengeance are extremely rare in Valhalla, to the point where players have been questioning whether they’ve just been completely bugged since launch.
And as it turns out, they are.
The development team has once again updated its official list of known issues with the game, and “avenge quests are nowhere to be found” is now ‘under investigation’.
With any luck, avenge quests will finally be working as intended in the near future, adding a bit more spice to Eivor’s adventure. Dare we ask if you’ve ever come across the body of another player? Sate your thirst for vengeance in the comments section below.
