Ubisoft has outlined a sizeable post-launch content plan for the upcoming open-world game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Players can look forward to two narrative expansions, free seasonal content, and the return of the historical exploration Discovery Tour mode. There’s a lot to take in, so grab a notebook and pen. Or, erm, bookmark this page.
The paid Assassin’s Creed Valhalla season pass features two major content expansions, new territories to explore, and a new exclusive quest called The Legend of Beowulf. The first expansion – Wrath of the Druids – be released in spring 2021 and takes players to the island of Ireland to investigate a mysterious – and no doubt naughty – druidic cult. The second – The Siege of Paris – follows next summer and restages one of the most notorious battles in Viking history.
The season pass is supported by a free content roadmap that will be delivered across four seasons. Each season lasts for three months and includes narrative content and in-game events. The first launches in December and includes a new settlement area, a traditional Viking Yule Festival, and a new River Raids game mode. It also adds new player skills and abilities, plus weapons, gear, and cosmetic items.
Season 2 will launch next March and introduces a new game mode that builds on Valhalla‘s core combat mechanics. It will also feature new festivals for player settlements and another treasure trove of items and cosmetics.
God, I miss Desmond Miles so much.
Take a look at what’s in store in the game’s new trailer.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be released on November 10, 2020, for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Stadia. The PlayStation 5 version will be released two days later on November 12.
