The update will introduce a support for the upcoming new expansion Dawn of Ragnarok, which will be released on March 10, 2022.

In Dawn of Ragnarök, Eivor must embrace their destiny as Odin, the Norse god of Battle and Wisdom. Unleash new divine powers as you embark on a desperate quest through the breathtaking world of Svartalfheim. Complete a legendary Viking saga and save your son in the face of the gods’ doom.

  • Wield incredible, otherworldly powers. Absorb new abilities from those you’ve defeated and use them to slay all who stand in your way. Shape-shift into a raven for spectacular assassinations or resurrect your defeated foes to fight on your side. Transform your skin into magma to protect yourself, infuse your weapon with ice to unleash devastating strikes, and more.
  • New players can start the expansion at any time from the main menu with player boost. You will start your journey at Power Level 340 with a predefined selection of gear and weapons.
  • New Divine Quality for gear and weapons.
    • 3 new tiers of upgrade
    • A new special rune slot
  • Expand your progression with 4 new abilities and 6 new skills.
  • Unlock new weapons and armor sets.

The new update will finally improve the stealth gameplay as it had problems before. These fixes will all be beneficial to the players when they install this. Check out the things that got addressed:

  • AI reaction to whistle improved.
  • Players get detected by enemies when using environmental traps.
  • Wild animals detecting Eivor regardless of distance/angle and alerting nearby NPCs.
  • NPCs disengaging from conflicts extremely quickly.
  • Enemy detection cones reducing when using a bow.
  • Monks having difficulty to leave the music crowd stations in the quest Taken (Kidnap Estrid).

There is a new addition when the update lands on all platforms. This is the Saga Difficulty Mode, which allows players to not worry about stealth and combat. In this mode, enemies will inflict less damage and will not scale with players. There is also more time to perform actions when being detected.

There are also tons of fixes and additions with this new update.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
