If you want to earn trophies or achievements in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you should avoid cross-saves. There are still some problems with these at the moment.
Ubisoft released the open-world action role-playing game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. In order to offer the players the possibility of transferring their saved games to all platforms and continuing the corresponding adventure, Ubisoft Connect introduced a corresponding feature for cross-saves.
However, the players report that there may be problems with the cross-saves. Accordingly, you can neither earn trophies nor achievements, for example, if you switch from the PlayStation 5 version to the Xbox Series X version and vice versa. After that, no more trophies and achievements pop up, even if you meet the corresponding requirements.
GameSpot’s Lucy James reports that she had to remove her Ubisoft Connect account, delete the saved games and play offline in order for the trophy/achievement system to work again. Time will tell whether Ubisoft will find another solution to this problem.
The only way to get trophies to start spawning again was to:
• Remove my account from Ubisoft Connect (lost all the preorder bonus stuff tho!)
• Delete my saves
• Play offline (you have to be on Ubisoft Connect if your console is online)
Got my 20 hr save on XSX, but ?

However, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla should have other problems with these rewards. Several Reddit users report that some of their trophies are not unlocked even if they complete the tasks. In this regard, Ubisoft does not seem to be sure what is causing these errors.
And all of this is in addition to the fact that the PS4 and PS5 versions of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla have separate trophy lists. So you have to start over on the PS5 if you want to earn all the trophies instead of taking the game from the PS4.
