Unlike prior Assassin’s Creed titles, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has received the most content in the history of the franchise. While the IP has been on a yearly release schedule for nearly a decade, Ubisoft decided to add a year to development per entry. With that comes add-ons for the latest game at the time. Last year, a second year of content for the 2020 game was promised with the upcoming release of its second expansion.

Additionally, the firm revealed a new experience which crosses paths with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey as protagonist Kasandra is welcomed to the story arc. Atop of that, Dawn of Ragnarok was also welcomed shortly after that following March as the third story expansion. Looking forward, a report surfaced which indicates the next game will be a prequel to Valhalla set in Baghdad. 

At the Assassin’s Creed 15th Anniversary Livestream, it was revealed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be bringing another year of content to the game moving forward. You can watch the segment of the presentation in the video below:

“For the first time in franchise history, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will receive a second year of free post-launch support, including new content updates, returning festivals, and more. Some have already been added to the game, like the Ostara Festival, Mastery Pack 2, and Armory upgrade for Ravensthorpe,” the blog post reveals.

“Fans can look forward to Assassin’s Creed Origins-inspired tattoos and naval packs in the game, as well as new tombs that will conclude the mystery behind the Tombs of the Fallen, coming this fall. The Forgotten Saga is also set to continue its adventure into Norse mythology, giving players the chance to delve into Niflheim in a rogue-lite inspired free game mode that continues Odin’s journey. Eivor’s final chapter is set to release at the end of the year.”

Elsewhere in the livestream, Ubisoft shares new information on the next entry for Assassin’s Creed will take place this September. As for what that will be is not disclosed, but it is anticipated to be the next game starring Basim which was reported previously. Perhaps it could even cover Assassin’s Creed Infinity which was revealed last year. You can read the full report by heading here.
