I was playing through the palace of ice DLC when I to the part where you have to either side with Captain Ashdown or General Blunt in the Eastern Clan quest line. After killing the convoy I returned to Gallivan border but Ashdown didn't load in and all his cutscenes were skipped. The quest line still updated however. Since Ashdown didn't load in I couldn't arrest him or kill him so I killed General Blunt and then went to Glendale Caste. Ashdown didn't appear there either even though he is supposed to according to online sources. I cleared out the entire fortress killing the Gallivan General. After however you get a quest to leave the castle and when I tried to step in the area to leave the quest updated like I had left the castle but I got no prompt to leave the area and stepping on and off leave area also had no effect. So now I am stuck in the castle unable to leave, soft-locking the game. I have tried closing and reopening the game multiple times, loading different saves, and verifying the the integrity of the game files none of which have helped. I have a save from after clearing the convoy and and save from after killing the Gallivan General if there is anyway to recover either save that would be amazing.
Palace of Ice bug soft-locked me out of progressing.
