The next Assassin’s Creed Valhalla title update looks set to introduce one-handed swords to the game.
The company previously discussed plans to add one-handed swords to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in June.
UPDATE 26/07/21: Ubisoft has detailed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla title update 1.3.0, which will introduce a one-handed sword, and announced a release date for the game’s second expansion, The Siege of Paris.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: “We add in community requested tweaks and features too,” Ubisoft Montreal senior community developer Karen Lee said. “For instance, we’ll be adding one-handed swords in the coming weeks.”
Ubisoft said in late April that future Assassin’s Creed Valhalla title updates would be released less frequently in a bid to improve their quality.
The company said it was moving from a four-week to a five-week title update release cycle “to allow for more thorough testing and refinement” following the release of some disappointing patches.
“Our community is at the heart of everything we do, and we always strive to provide you with great experiences,” Ubisoft wrote. “That said, we recognize that some of our recent title updates may not have met your expectations or been up to our standards.”
Ubisoft’s Lee also said last month that Valhalla will receive a second year of expansions in 2022.
“For the first time on an Assassin’s Creed title we’ll be supporting the game well into its second year,” she said.
Ubisoft is reportedly working on Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a massive online game that will evolve over time as a live service.
