Valhalla’s Ostara Season went live earlier this week, adding exclusive narrative content and in-game events for all players.
The Ostara content takes place in a dedicated area of Ravensthorpe. Following its deployment with update 1.2.0, players had reported crashes in and around this area.
On Friday, Ubisoft confirmed it had deployed a server-side hotfix to address the rise in crashing near Ravensthorpe. Settlement decorations will be temporarily removed and new Ostara Festival quests involving decorations will not be completable, it confirmed.
The company said it planned to release a permanent fix soon. In an update published earlier the same day, it had said a solution to the issues “should be ready sometime next week.”
In addition to the Settlement decoration activity, Valhalla’s Season 2 update also added three new character quests, skills, and drinking, archery and fighting mini-games.
Players must reach England and complete one of the first narrative arcs (Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire) to experience the Ostara festival.
Each Assassin’s Creed Valhalla season will last for three months and include in-game events, new settlement buildings and games modes.
Ubisoft previously said a new game mode building on the game’s core combat mechanics would be added later in the season when “a Master arrives at the settlement, inspiring Eivor to train and perfect challenges to become a Master.”
Ubisoft will launch Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s first major expansion, Wrath of the Druids, on April 29, 2021.
The first of two confirmed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla story expansions, Wrath of the Druids will see players travel to Ireland to uncover the mysteries of an ancient druidic cult.
A second Assassin’s Creed Valhalla story expansion, The Siege of Paris, will retell the Viking invasion of France in 845 AD when it arrives in the summer of 2021.
