Ubisoft has revealed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will receive its final content update in early December, wrapping up two years of extensive support for the game, but that it will not include New Game+, a highly requested mode that would have allowed players to replay the game from beginning with high-level gear and other perks.
The news was shared by Ubisoft in an update on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s final post-launch plans today, which noted that while the lack of New Game+ is likely to disappoint some players, they can still look forward to The Last Chapter, which will be introduced as part of the Viking RPG’s Title Update 1.6.2 and provide a “touching and intimate” conclusion to Eivor’s saga.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players will need to complete the following parts of the game to access The Last Chapter, which releases on December 6:
- 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
Ubisoft also clarified that time-limited events (i.e., Yule, Ostara, Sigrblot, and Oskoreia Festivals) in Ravensthrope are coming to an end, but all rewards from past festivals will be available at all merchants located throughout England upon completing The First Night of Samhain, a quest associated with the Glowecestrescire arc.
Lastly, the final content update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will allow players to keep their hoods up at any time, even when taking off Eivor’s cloak.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is headed to Steam on December 6, according to a listing for the game on Valve’s platform that can confirm it will feature DRM in the form of Denuvo anti-tamper.
