AC: Valhalla Will Get Major Update and New Game Mode

Ubisoft assured that the February release of the free update called The River Raids, scheduled to add a new game mode, is not threatened. The developers are also preparing another patch to fix the most serious bugs.

IN A NUTSHELL

  • The devs of AC: Valhalla assured that a new mode called The River Raids will be coming to the game soon;
  • The new update will add three new raid locations to the game and enable us to take more Jomsvikings on raids;
  • In addition, another update will be released, fixing many reported bugs.

Last October, Ubisoft announced many additions to Assassin's Creed: Valhalla for both Season Pass owners and those who don't want to spend more money. One of the promised free new features was a mode called The River Raids. The release date was set for February 2021. That month arrived, and fans began to wonder if the promise would actually be fulfilled. However, the devs reassured that the announced content will be coming soon, so the February release is probably not in jeopardy.

The River Raids will be a new game mode in the latest installment of the Assassin's Creed series. The content will focus primarily on raids, which are an indispensable part of the title. The players will get access to three new locations, containing a large number of rewards such as Silver, Runes, and Skill Books. However, raids on the aforementioned camps will be much more difficult than the others. Fortunately, in case of failure, it will be possible to try again. Furthermore, the expansion will enable us to take more Jomsvikings on board. Until now, Eivor could be accompanied by up to six such warriors.

Ubisoft also announced that an update to the game, fixing a lot of bugs, will be released soon. We do not know yet the details, but it is very likely that it's mostly about bugs that blocked gameplay progress or completion of a side quest. It's not known whether the update will appear together with the one adding the new game mode or both updates will be separated by a few days.

The devs recently announced that Valhalla will be supported longer than its predecessor, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, and reminded us of the upcoming Wrath of Druids expansion. The first free season update was the Yule Festival, which arrived just before Holidays. On the other hand, the game was criticised by the players. The devs were accused of overly favoring people who spend a lot of money in the microtransaction store and not enough free updates.
