Ubisoft has revealed the Dawn of Ragnarok DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, what they describe as being the most ambitious expansion pack in the series history. Taking you to the Nine Realms of Norse mythology, Dawn of Ragnarok will release on 10th March 2022.
With a more overt mythological twist as invaders of frost and flame tear through the Nine Realms in the War of the North and Svartalfheim, the Kingdom of the Dwarves falling apart and Baldr kidnapped by the fire giant Surt. Eivor steps right into the middle of this conflict, embodying Odin for this story and fighting to determine the future of the Nine Realms. You’ll have new mythological abilities to help out in your fights, wielding Thor’s control of lightning.
Alongside this new expansion, there will also be Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories, the first of which will launch tomorrow on 14th December. This takes us back to Odyssey protagonist Kassandra’s journey with two new stories: Those Who Are Treasured available for free in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and A Fated Encounter in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
To support this, Ubisoft is pushing live a major update to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that makes difficulty setting improvements and fixes stealth. It’s such a big update the entire game needs to be redownloaded as the core game data is being restructures. On PC it will be 78GB, PS4 will be 67GB, PS5 at 40GB, Xbox One at 62GB, and Xbox Series X|S at 71GB. The good news is that the game should now be smaller on your system.
In our review for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Jim said:
“Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla effortlessly plants its banner as the best open world RPG available for the new consoles. This Viking epic flexes its gore-soaked, tattooed muscles when it comes to world-building, and medieval England wows with its enchanting untamed vistas. It’s also portioned out at a steady pace and, if not for the repetitive, limited combat, Valhalla could have ranked even higher among our favourite games in the series.”
Since launch the game has received numerous title updates and two premium expansions – Wrath of the Druids and Siege of Paris. Ubisoft just released its new educational DLC for the game, Discovery Tour: Viking Age, which lets players learn more about the real-world history that fuels Valhalla’s open world action.
