Assassin's Creed: Valhalla will soon receive the next major update. Version 1.3.0 will become available tomorrow, and the players will have to prepare between 15 and 25.5 GB of disk space on most platforms. The exception is PlayStation 5, where the patch will take only less than 7 GB.
The update prepares the game for the Siege of Paris expansion which will launch not on the 5 (as it seemed from recent leak), but on August 12. In addition, we will receive a lot of improvements in the basic version Assassin's Creed: Valhalla as well as in the Wrath of the Druids DLC. This includes fixing bugs related to raids (after which you sometimes don't receive rewards) and endless loading screens when completing certain tasks, as well as general performance improvements. The full list can be found on the game's official website.
Update 1.3.0 isn't just a patch. Two days after its launch (July 29) the Sigrblot Festival event will begin. It will last until August 19, and during this time new activities and quests with exclusive rewards will appear. It should be noted that they will be available only after completing one of the first two story chapters and after developing the settlement to level 2.
In addition, Ubisoft will refresh the skill tree and add three new abilities. The game will also include previously absent options associated with difficulty scaling. We'll be able to turn it off completely, leave the default setting or choose one of three more demanding options. The highest, Nightmare mode will make the enemies have even more than 50 power levels more than player characters. Importantly, this will not apply to bosses and alternative game modes.
