Issue: Using the Semicolon key in-game results in screen briefly going dark then game becomes unresponsive. Only solution is to End Task to quit game.

Details: Setting up custom keybinds for Valhalla on PC and used the semicolon key for Dodge/ Roll however when I tried to use it in-game it made the screen fade to black briefly then the character was stuck in place and all keys were unresponsive.

Not had a problem with any other keybinds so tried reboot and PC restart and nothing helped. Then changed it to another key and it worked fine.

So thought to hit the semicolon/ colon key in-game unbound and it did the same thing, turning the screen black for a second then once screen back all keys unresponsive. the game continues with audio etc but character stuck and no other action possible including Esc to main screen.

The only way to exit was using End Task via Task Manager.

Was surprised to not see any mentions of this behaviour when searching Google for this in Valhalla or any other AC game as it is quite a pain.

Only thing I could think was is is perhaps the key used to call up console commands for development and it is disabled function in live game branch and caused the issue.

Anyone else able to confirm this behaviour or have some idea why it happens?

Hello there!

I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing game crashes whilst using the ";" key in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Thank you for taking the time to share your reports with us.

I was also able to replicate this issue in my own game as well. As @Richj_44 notes, it's not that the game freezes, but that you're no longer able to interact with mouse and keyboard. I've notified the development team of this issue so they can take a closer look at this. If we require any additional information from you, we'll reach out within this thread.

In the meantime, we would recommend that you avoid using the semicolon key in-game if possible. I understand that this may be impacting on your gaming experience, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Thank you 😊
