Ubisoft announced that it plans to support Assassin's Creed: Valhalla longer and more ambitiously than it did with Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. This doesn't just include updates that fix technical issues, but also new content.
This is surprising news, as in this regard Assassin's Creed: Odyssey had nothing to be ashamed of and was supported for almost two years after its debut. Apart from two large paid DLCs, the game regularly received patches with additional content. In total, the updates gave us 11 episodes with new adventures from the Lost Tales of Greece series and two bonus short quests.
For Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, Ubisoft announced two expansions - Wrath of Druids and The Siege of Paris. We don't know if the game's development plans will include additional paid DLC, or if we'll just get more free content in patches.
The company's willingness to support the game for a long time is not surprising. A few days ago, Ubisoft boasted that Assassin's Creed: Valhalla became the best-earning installment in the franchise in the period of first two months after launch. The game did so well that, thanks to its success, the last quarter of 2020 was the best in the publisher's history.
Interestingly, in terms of sales, Assassin's Creed III still boasts the most successful debut in the series. Assassin's Creed: Valhalla wins in terms of revenue, which is due to both the higher price of the game, the presence of microtansactions and the popularity of the season pass.
