Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: details of the last update, patch brings surprises

The history of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is coming to an end. In a current Blog entry shares Ubisoft announced that they intend to release the last content update for the action role-playing game in December. “In November 2020, we released Assassin’s Creed Valhalla with the aim of providing a true Viking experience set in 9th-century England with Eivor and the Raven Clan. 20 million players have joined us on this adventure so far,” the developers write. The story about the Vikings was continued with numerous DLCs, now the finale is on.

Final update is pending

At the 6th of December should finally be the finale Update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (buy now €25.49 / €17.99 )as a download appear. “Title Update 1.6.2 will bring some exciting new content to the game, including ‘The Final Chapter’, a touching and intimate conclusion to Eivor’s saga,” writes Ubisoft. With the epilogue, the developers want to complete “some of the storylines” that have developed in AC Valhalla and offer a conclusion to your time with the Raven Clan.

That’s in the patch

In order to play the final DLC, you must have completed the main story and Mythic arcs in Asgard and Jotunheim. In addition, your settlement should be upgraded to level 5 and include a Jomsviking warrior camp. And: Complete all objectives of the Order of the Elders and reveal its leader. With the expansion, the limited-time festivals in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also come to an end. Those who could not attend all festivals should complete the quest “The First Night of Samhain”. After that, all rewards from past events are available for purchase from retailers throughout the game.

Rewards as a thank you

“We’re also adding with this one Update brand new rewards as a thank you for your continued support,” adds Ubisoft. Incidentally, a New Game Plus mode is no longer to be expected. The developers comment: “When investigating the possibility of implementing New Game+, we realized that because of the depth of the game have very limited opportunities to make a replay worthwhile or even special for you.”

With the update 1.6.2 there is also the possibility to Hood to wear at all times – a feature frequently requested by the community. “This new option will be added to the game’s options menu and will give you the option to always wear the hood, even when you remove Eivor’s cloak,” writes Ubisoft, noting that the change is purely cosmetic. The update is to be rounded off by “a few more surprises“, which will only be presented around the update release. With Assassin’s Creed Mirage, a new game is already being created for the popular action-adventure series.
