[Moderator Note] The box on this platform is a resource crate, not a relic, so anyone encountering this can still complete the game fully. That being said, this will be fixed in patch #2.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm playing through the main campaign for the first time and am right after you return to the remnant valley after getting the Atlas.

There is a relic box on a platform hanging from the tower near the base camp (valley farmstead) campfire in the Geothermal Valley. I climbed to the top of the tower and cut the rope, dropping the wood platform that holds the box. On my way down the tower I fell and died. Upon respawning the box is shown floating in air where the platform used to be with no way for me to collect it. Trying to interact where the rope can be cut, going back to the main menu, loading into another area and back, turning off the game and then relaunching all do not fix the problem and I am no longer able to get the box for my 100% completion.

to repro:
1. climb up the guard tower next to the tower with the box on a platform
2. use your rope arrows to make a zipline between the two towers
3. cross the zipline and enter the tower
4. use explosive arrows to shoot the metal blockage out of the window
5. climb outside and then up the tower
6. at the top of the tower walk over to the rope and hit Y to cut the rope
7. jump off the tower, dieing without interacting with the relic box
8. run back to the tower and look up in the air to where the platform you cut down used to be

expected results:
box should be respawned on ground so player can open it OR the platform and rope should be respawned so the player can cut it down again

actual results:
box is floating in air without platform, going back up the tower reveals that there is no rope to cut and there is no way to get to the box to open it

I am having the same issue. Reloading, exiting game and even re-installing it does not help.

Workaround: Use the Backup Save function.

Hello! I just finished watching a friend play through ROTTR and noticed an issue in the Geothermal Valley. My friend went to cut down the platform to drop the relic box in the tower of the village in the geothermal valley. then he accidentally fell off the ledge and died and after re-spawning the box had reset but the platform, and the rope you are supposed to cut did not. The valley farmstead base camp is the closest one to this relic. If you could find a way to patch this quickly it would be much appreciated.

Hello there! The box on the platform should actually be a resource crate, not a relic, so you'll still be able to complete the game fully. That being said, we'll look into fixing this in a future update.

So, I was exploring the "Geothermal Valley" when I finded this bug. Right after when u get to the Geothermal Valley and go down the stairs, will be a tower with a platform and a collectible, the platform is suspended by a rope (Hung Out to Dry Challenge). I climb up that tower and cutted the rope with my Knife (3 of 6 snared rabbits cut down), then accidentally I fall down and died by suicide. The game returns and there's no more platform and no more rope, but the collectible is still there "floating". And in the Challenge Menu says (2 of 6 snared rabbits cut down). If this dont get a fix i'll need to restart the game from the beginning cause there's no more rope to cut and count to the challenge "HUNG OUT TO DRY". I didnt finished the game by the way...

EDIT: I've used the "Backup Saves" option and it worked, lost some % progress but its fine... close topic pls.

Thank you for posting this. I'm also having the same issue and I support your recommended solution. Based on the markings on the box, it looks like a salvage container; however, it's irritating going through the rest of the game with the possibility of not being able to complete it 100%. As I'm progressing through the story, I keep dwelling on the idea that I will need to do an entirely separate playthrough just to collect that one box and 100% the game in the off chance that it contains something important.

Hello!
Got the same problem on italian digital version of RoTR for xbox360.
I fell down of the edge after cut the rope and I found the resource crate on the air.

I downloaded the first update (of 308MB) from when I started to play.

But there's another bug.
After exploring the valley a bit and come back to the tower I found it this way:

There is a problem with textures, and it is a serius problem because inside the tower, in the middle floor, it seems to be placed a collectable, and this way is very hard understand how reach it.
Hoping you'll fix it soon.

PS. Great game. I'm loving it!

Hello there! We can confirm this is just a salvage box and will not keep you from hitting 100 percent completion. We're working towards fixing this in a future update.

I cut the rope in the geothermal vally to drop the strongbox and then died and now the strongbox is floating back up where it was but there is no rope to cut it down. I think im screwed for collecting it now. Very sad as i want to collect everything.

I think that's just a resource box. It's the one hanging from the tower near the valley town (where you first enter) that you have to break through a wall and climb up to get, and it looks like a relic box, yes?

I lost that one too, but it only had a few resources in it.

yeah the one im on about seems to small to be a strongbox plus ive got 100% in geothermal valley, so it must just be a resource box but it annoyed me that i couldnt and still cant get it :P

Yes I experienced the same bug with my game. It's not a strongbox.

Thanks guys, good to know it doesn't stop you getting 100%. Maybe they'll fix it in the next update.
