The owners of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla drew attention to this.
After players in the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla noticed the lack of achievements, they contacted Ubisoft technical support to find out what was the reason.
In response, a representative from Ubisoft explained that the abandonment of the achievements in the PC version of Asassin’s Creed Valhalla was not a mistake, but an intentional decision of the studio. The French publisher decided that the achievements and challenges that unlock as you progress through the games in the Ubisoft Connect service, in fact, duplicate each other.
In this regard, Ubisoft began to remove achievements on the PC and leave only challenges, for the completion of which players can receive experience and other rewards in Ubisoft Connect.
Sorry for the inaccurate information that I previously posted in this thread, this was due to a misunderstanding.
Achievements are not available on the PC version of this game and this is a planned change.
In lieu of achievements in new games in Ubisoft Connect, we have increased the number of challenges that experience and other rewards in Ubisoft Connect provide.
We know this is a significant change for many of you, and we appreciate your understanding on this matter.
Ubisoft support response
On the Ubisoft forum, players expressed dissatisfaction with the publisher’s decision and noted that both achievements and challenges remained in the PC version of Watch Dogs Legion, which was released shortly before Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
