Update 30/11 at 08.00: After a long silence on the surprise update, Ubisoft finally confirmed that the one released for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is precisely the final update of the title , made available a week early « due to an unexpected glitch in the Animus ».
It means that you will have immediate access to all the content planned for the latest update, including the free DLC ” The Last Chapter “. However, that also means that Valhalla ‘s post-launch support has officially come to an end.
Original article: Assassin ‘s Creed Valhalla update 1.62 is officially available for download starting today: it is one of the most awaited updates by the community, as it introduces great news to thank the fans for the support. An unexpected arrival, given that the patch was actually only expected in a week .
With the new awaited patch , post-launch support for Valhalla (you can find it on offer on Amazon ) should officially end after two years: Ubisoft is now working on the future of the saga and wanted to conclude the Eivor saga in style.
Thanks to the latest update, from 6 December it will in fact be possible to access the additional DLC ” The Last Chapter “ for free , which will definitively and touchingly close the story of Eivor and the Raven clan. Even if the patch has already been made available, this feature should therefore not be unlocked until next week.
The patch also introduces one of the most requested features by the community: the ability to always keep the hood up during your games. This is a purely aesthetic function and will not have any impact on gameplay, but will allow you to give that extra mysterious touch to your Eivor.
As post-launch support is officially ending, Ubisoft also announced that players will be able to get all the rewards distributed in the seasonal festivals at merchants around England. There will no longer be limited-time parties in Raventhorpe, giving all players the chance to catch up on content they missed earlier.
The official changelog (via UpdateCrazy ) reports instead some performance improvements and bugfixes , for example solving the annoying problem of Eivor who spawned already drunk while loading a game.
The latest patch of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is already available for download on PC and consoles: after downloading the update, it will be necessary to wait until next week to be able to officially say goodbye to the adventures of Eivor. It is not clear if all the features will be unlocked only next week or if a new update will arrive, but fans will be able to prepare properly for the conclusion of this great adventure.
The end of post-launch support also means that New Game Plus will never arrive: Ubisoft has in fact declared that it has seriously considered this option, but the structure of the game would have made it impossible to implement .
We take the opportunity that Valhalla is about to officially say goodbye to the PlayStation Plus subscription service: fortunately, players should have enough time to enjoy all the contents of the latest update.
