Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will get its final DLC – The Last Chapter – on December 6, but it will unfortunately not be getting the “highly requested” New Game+ feature.
Ubisoft shared the news in a blog, and it revealed The Last Chapter will wrap up “two amazing years of launch suport.” The Last Chapter will arrive alongside Title Update 1.6.2, and it will serve as a “touching and intimate conclusion to Eivor’s saga” and will “tie up some of the storylines developed throughout the game and offer closure to your time among the Raven Clan.”
Those who wish to see the end of Eivor’s story will need to complete a few things, and the full list is as follows;
- Complete the main storyline by pledging to all territories of England
- Complete the mythical story arcs of Asgard and Jotunheim
- Upgrade your settlement to level 5 and construct the Jomsviking barracks
- Kill all targets of the Order of the Ancients and unveil its leader
Ubisoft also confirmed it will no longer be running time-limited festival events in Ravensthorpe. However, all rewards from past festivals will be avaialble at Merchants after the quest The FIrst Night of Samhain is completed. There will also be brand-new rewards as a “thank you for your continued support.”
As for New Game+, which Ubisoft acknowledged was a “highly requested feature,” it will not be added to the game.
“Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been built as a unique Assassin’s Creed experience, one that is very different from its predecessors in its structure, offering new ways of engaging with the world and its characters,” Ubisoft wrote. “When investigating the implementation of New Game+, we realized that the depth of the game gave us limited options to make replayability unique and rewarding.”
While New Game+ won’t be coming, there will be a few new additions before Ubisoft shifts its Assassin’s Creed focus to future titles, including an option to keep your hood up at any time. There will also be a few more surprises, but Ubisoft is saving those for its “final farewell.”
As the sun sets at Valhalla, another sun is rising for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a new platform and hub for future Assassin’s Creed games. Ubisoft has revealed that the first two games that will be part of Infinity will include one that follows the life of a Shinobi in feudal Japan and another helmed by Watch Dogs: Legion director Clint Hocking that looks to have something to do with witchcraft.
