View Full Version : Side Quest - Across the border

10-11-2018, 06:01 PM
The escort quest Across the Border given by Alkibiades is bugged. After hitting the first round of attackers the "friend" runs a distance away and refuses to move after the fight is over. Reloading to a previous autosave at the gate leaves them stuck there. I presume the current solution is to reload a previous save (I will lose hours of gameplay so no thanks) so I just wanted to let Ubisoft know and to anyone coming across this quest make sure you save before you accept it.

I'm having the same issue as reported above Npc bugged out ran back to the town for 15mins in a circle then stood in one spot and refuses to move. As this thread was posted 4 weeks ago has anything actually been done about it yet?

I am also stuck on this quest and would appreciate an update on the status or a workaround. I tried restarting from right after the quest started and hit the bug again. I'm playing through the Google Stream playtest, FWIW.

The friend does not want to follow at all. He (she) is just standing

Are you able to reload to an earlier save theH4ster?

I just ran into this issue and I think I found a way around it. If you are able to reload a last checkpoint/auto save (which I was 😅) once you start escorting, ride until before you get to the ambush point and go on foot. And try to get the upper hand and anticipate the ambush. The escort even got off her horse and helped me take out the soldiers. I personally called upon one of my lieutenants before hand. Once we defeated the soldiers, my escort got back on her horse and we rode away until we reached our destination. Hope this helps.
