While both players and critiques have praised Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for its stunning visuals, gameplay mechanics, and dark storyline, it looks like many are unable to progress in the game because of bugs and issues.

Just last week, players reported that they were not able to complete ‘The Flame and the Forge’ and ‘A Brewing Storm’ quests. And now, Valhalla players are saying that they are still unable to progress in ‘A challenge from the gods’ quest.


Many say that Hildiran is stuck at the statue with the objective saying ‘progress through the main story’ even though they have completed the main storyline.

Others say that they are able to talk to Hildiran which is followed by a cutscene but then they cannot fight her.

And those who are able to fight her are reporting that she throws a punch following which Eivor gets knocked out and the quest stops. Players said they tried reloading their previous save and verifying game files but that did not help either.

@UbisoftSupport AC Valhalla’s Challenge from the Gods has been bugged with “Progress through the main story” as its objective despite me completing every single other questline in the game – including the main story. There was a game update recently, how has this not been fixed??

Hello all, I was really excited about the new title update but am really disappointed I can’t seem to go on with Challenge of the Gods. I’m stuck at the part right after Hildiran’s built her house, and the next step in the quest is simply ‘Talk to Hildiran’. This is where you’re supposed to fight her, from what I’ve seen of walkthrough videos. But, what happens for me is I throw the first punch, she knocks me down, and then the cut scene never starts. I go right back to the normal gameplay, still with the ‘Talk to Hildiran’ objective, and she’s still highlighted as the quest objective. So I’m stuck in this loop.

With some reports dating back to June 2021, Valhalla players are seemingly frustrated and wondering why Ubisoft is taking so long to fix the issue.

Thankfully, Ubisoft Support has shed some light on the matter and said that the bug will be fixed in a future update. However, they did not share ETA for the same.


That being said, when Ubisoft releases a fix for the bug where Valhalla players are unable to progress in ‘A challenge from the gods’ quest, we will let you know so stay tuned.
