Asgard's Wrath, Revive dead follower issue

I may be being an idiot, but I cannot work out how to revive a follower after switching to another.
Shark dude was killed, so I switch to the turtle to finish a fight, but now I cannot switch back to the shark to revive it. Anyone know if there is another way to revive a follower even if it is not selected?

    Dang - frustrating.

    I don't think my Sharkie McSharkface got killed. He just disappeared and stopped following me. Still in my inventory, along with Turtle McMoscowMitch, still apparently alive. But I can't seem to make him APPEAR and be useful.

    Hopefully the solution to your problem is also the solution to mine.

    Oh, and the turtle definitely didn't die, as I had sharky following when I suddenly found I had no follower. But I need the Senate MajLeader back for a bit to block a flame-thrower stopping me from getting to a treasure chest up on the cliff.

    What is it with Turtles and utter uselessness, lately? Huh?

    You should go to the discord. You're supposed to revive your followers. I don't know if he's gone for good or if you can create a new shark.

    I tried creating a new shark follower but the action just killed the shark, as if I did not have the spell

    I started a fresh game & "lost" my follower (Turtle this time) in the same spot - I was paying closer attention. It was during the 2nd swordplay training period with Loki (Parry, etc). Come back from training, follower is gone.

    They're alive, in the inventory, but you have to grab them from there and drop them on the detailed-info-pedestal (dunno what it's really called) to the right. Then, poof, you have your follower in the world again.

    I refuse to Discord - such a disagreeable connotation. Not having it.

    As above said, then use the revive potion to get them breathing :)

    Thanks, managed to get the shark back, that solution seems the sort of thing a contextual hint would have been good for.

    Yeah, the 1st time a follower dies (or drops to inventory), LokiGhost could give a brother-god a hint.

    But - really spectacular game so far - these are nit-picks, in my opinion. It's so fun, that I have VR-headset-headache today.

    Good to know. BTW, patching Asgard's Wrath may be difficult, because Oculus has the worst patching system I can think of. What happens when you patch a game? Then a copy of the game is made in the staging (or download) folder, then the patch is downloaded and applied to that copy and then the original installation is replaced. It works - and the problem? See what happens when I try to patch Trover on a drive with like 20GB free space:



    Trover takes up nearly 26GB and thus requires another 26GB free space to be patched. What happens if a patch arrives for Asgard's Wrath? You'll likely need 150GB of free space to patch the game - and the time to copy 150GB forth - and back - may be massive and increase likelihood of errors. 
    Let's hope there won't be a need to patch the game, lol... 
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz gpu boost, 11 GHz mem speed); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1 - the latter nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

    I was stuck for a while too. My follower died but I had no revive. So I went to Asgard to get some. Came back and appeared at a different part of the map without a follower. Stuck at that part because i needed him to open doors.

    I left and came back and my follower appeared. 

    I heard some say you can revive your follower in the menu.

    Yes, you can revive in menu, or use one of those super revive thingys.. They revive everyone

    If your follower is lost, point at the ground near your feet to recall them.  I don't know if it works when they need to be revived, but the menu thing definitely works in those cases.

    If you want to revive a companion in the menu you just grab a revive potion, point with it at your dead companion (on the pedestal to your right) and then release the grab trigger. 
    If you want to recall a living companion to your position, hold B on your right controller, point to you feet and release the B button.
