Yeah I'm pretty sure the same thing that happened to me happened to him and he just didn't figure out where to go. The locked in a room thing doesn't even make any sense. Believe me I probably know this dumb labyrinth better than anyone now haha. I'll have to check out the review, but it sounds like he wasn't able to articulate what was happening.

On the bright side, if it happens to anyone else I know how to guide them straight there. It's really easy if you know where you need to go.

Can you help me out? I'm really hosed off with this game right now.

I'm in Helheim where I just got an 'R' rune and passed through a waterfall, which put my torch out. I ran forward to a pool of light, but it's autosaved and I can't get any further before the beast kills me (just before a balance beam). The walkthrough says to relight your torch, but I now don't have one.

Have died maybe 30-40 times here.

edit: Welp looks like I'm hosed. The game clearly thinks I'm holding a torch and is animating my character as if she is, but I can't light anything:



Was definitely in my top 5 of the year until now. gently caress.

That's unfortunate. Someone on reddit apparently has a save file prior to the torch sequence so you can properly light the brazier:

You have to replace the file in C:\Users\XXXXX\AppData\Local\HellbladeGame\Saved\SaveGames

I have not tried this myself but it's worth a shot!

I'm on PS4, but thanks anyway.

I mean, it is kinda of ironic that the delete your saves thing is a huge bluff, but it has essentially happened to me.

Still.... this really feels like a pretty major QA oversight.

Hooray - they got that patch out.

Finally I can finish the game

Actually no I can't because this patch hasn't fixed poo poo for me. Still stuck with an invisible torch and no way forward

Let me know as exactly as you can where you are, and I'll try and get you a save game.

PS4 unfortunately, but thanks anyway.

Sucked up my game-breaking bug woes and played through the game again and finally finished it. Loved the hell out of it - and I could not get enough of the photo mode.

















Anyone else get any neat shots?

Glad you got there in the end - your sacrifice wasn't for nothing!

Ta - and cheers for your help trying to get me out of the jam.

In Ninja Theory connections I did notice that Senua's headband kinda sorta looks a bit like Monkey from Enslaved's control tiara thing - but put it down to the character designer just having a thing for that look:

So where was the setting for all of this? From what I gather its an undisclosed European village, and vikings from the north came down to Europe to loot.

Orkney, I think.

It doesn't happen. I've seen someone's rot all the way up their shoulder, and they died but it just went down to their elbow.

Yeah - when I was hosed by a game breaking bug I must have died 100+ times to 'the Beast' and the rot just started moving to random lengths up the arm.
