How To Fix The Ritual Bug

While playing the game, you might come across a bug where the ritual gets stuck and does not allow you to move forward with it. The payer and NPCs will be stuck in a limbo-like movement. At this point, nothing will work except for the pause button.

Massive Monster has promised to fix this bug, but there is no proper solution as of now. However, one way to avoid it is to save the game progress and move to the main menu. You will start playing the game again, and you will be rewarded with the ritual’s effect.

You can use this option to avoid the bug until Maaive Monster comes up with a permanent solution for this bug or remove it from the game. Following this trick will help you ensure a smooth gameplay experience, as the bug is supposed to stay for now.
