“On December 6, we will be releasing our final content update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, wrapping up two amazing years of post-launch support,” the company wrote on its official blog.
“Title Update 1.6.2 will include some exciting new content for the game, including The Last Chapter, a touching and intimate conclusion to Eivor’s saga.”
Assassin's Creed Mirage: Cinematic World Premiere
According to Ubisoft, The Last Chapter will tie up some of the storylines developed throughout the game and “offer closure to your time among the Raven Clan”.
To access The Last Chapter when it releases on December 6, players will need to complete the following key parts of the game:
- Complete the main storyline by pledging to all territories of England
- Complete the mythical story arcs of Asgard and Jotunheim
- Upgrade your settlement to level 5 and construct the Jomsviking barracks
- Kill all targets of the Order of the Ancients and unveil its leader
In addition, Valhalla will no longer be running the time-limited festival events in Ravensthorpe.
“For those who did not have the chance to participate in the Yule, Ostara, Sigrblot, or Oskoreia Festivals, all rewards from past festivals will be available at all merchants located throughout England upon completing the quest The First Night of Samhain,” Ubisoft explained.
Finally, the company confirmed that despite demand from fans, it will not be adding a New Game+ mode to Valhalla.
“Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been built as a unique Assassin’s Creed experience, one that is very different from its predecessors in its structure, offering new ways of engaging with the world and its characters,” it explained.
“When investigating the implementation of New Game+, we realized that the depth of the game gave us limited options to make replayability unique and rewarding.”
Six upcoming Assassin’s Creed games were discussed during a Ubisoft product showcase this month.
The next entry in the series will be Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Set for release in 2023, it takes place in ninth-century Baghdad at the peak of its Golden Age and is described as a “special tribute to the first Assassin’s Creed”.
