Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s next expansion has leaked: ‘Most ambitious in series history’
UPDATE: Ubisoft has officially announced the Dawn of Ragnarök expansion
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s “most ambitious expansion in the series’ history” has seemingly leaked via a Chinese web store.
According to the translated description, ‘Dawn of Ragnarök’ will release on March 10, 2022 and take place within the Nine Realms of Norse Cosmology.
“Dawn of Ragnarök is the most ambitious expansion pack in the history of this series,” the description reads. “Aivor must personally experience the fate of Odin, the war of the Norse and the destiny of the god of wisdom.
UPDATE 13/12/21: Ubisoft has officially announced the next Assassin’s Creed Valhalla expansion. Dawn of Ragnarök will be released on March 10, 2022.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: “The world of mythology, shouldering the urgent task of saving children, unleashing the brand-new supernatural power of the thunderbolt. After this shocking Viking legend, save your own flesh and blood before the gods are swallowed by the catastrophe.”
Several images of Dawn of Ragnarök have also leaked, hosted via Reddit below.
According to an earlier datamine, Dawn of Ragnarök will introduce a range of new abilities and weapons for protagonist Eivor. These include brief invisibility, the power to fly like a crow, teleportation arrows, a chainmail-piercing spear, ice powers, and the ability to revive enemies.
The expansion is likely what publisher Ubisoft has been teasing for an upcoming live stream set to take place on Monday, December 13.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to receive a second year of expansions—a first for the series—and Ubisoft has previously said it expects to surprise players with the content.
Ubisoft has already announced plans to release a new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla title update next week.
Valhalla title update 1.4.1 will let players customise their game experience more deeply by tuning new combat, stealth and exploration difficulty settings. It will also include several fixes designed to improve detection and social stealth issues.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s 1.4.1 update will require players to redownload the entire game.
The requirement is part of a “data restructuring” which Ubisoft said will significantly reduce the title’s file size on all platforms and improve performance.
