In terms of excitement for Ubisoft Montreal’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the dial was turned up as the firm shared to be cutting the wait short by a week. Last month in September, Ubisoft on Twitter announced that the approaching release for the franchise in alignment with the Xbox Series X|S will arrive on November 10 rather than the originally slated November 17 launch.
The new release window for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also means that information for the project would have to arrive sooner as the firm sheds a week off of its calendar. Details such as the space requirement for the title – which Ubisoft shared to be 50.1 GB (60 GB on console) – are just some details that the team has elaborated upon.
Today, Ubisoft posted a new video unveiling the post-launch plans for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. You can watch the trailer in the video below:
Structured similarly to how Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was for its add-ons after launch, there will be major story expansions alongside free plot substories to experience throughout the course of the game’s post-launch lifespan. For the first major DLC, Ubisoft introduces the Wrath of the Druids relocates that player onto Ireland as Eivor faces the new titular cult. Additionally, myth and legends of the civilization will also be expressed in the expansion when it drops in spring 2021.
The second add-on arriving in summer 2021, The Siege of Paris, as suggested by the title brings players to the most recognized encounter of the Viking era. Entering then-labeled Frankia, players will develop relationships within the bloodied city as the siege is underway. Players who own the Season Pass/Gold Edition/Ultimate Edition can also expect to receive the extra quest ‘The Legend of Beowolf’ as a free add-on experience when the game drops.
For the post-launch schedule elsewhere, players can also anticipated an influx of added seasonal content that will drop over time. With seasons scheduled for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft is also implementing timed ranking for Jomsviking to boost the rank of your settlement’s Lieutenant in response for more silver. Discovery Mode is also said to make a return for Valhalla with details to be spared later on.
Earlier this month, Ubisoft also announced that it would be incorporating a new ‘Default’ mode which allows players to swap genders during pivotal moments of the base storyline. You can read the full report by heading here.
