Assassin’s Creed Valhalla released in November 2020, so it’s been two years since the game was originally released, and Ubisoft has now decided to end post-launch content with some final additions. These additions provide a few more things for fans of the game, but the final update is also a bit disappointing.
Ubisoft has announced the end of post-launch content on its blog, and while the first part of the blog post reviews everything released so far, the new stuff starts about halfway through. The latest update, titled 1.6.2, will bring a conclusion described as “touching and intimate” by the blog post. This conclusion will recall the storylines that have been developed throughout the game and post-launch content.
The new update releases on December 6, 2022, and to access The Last Chapter, you must:
- Complete the main storyline committing to all territories of England
- Complete the mythic story arcs of Asgard and Jotunheim
- Upgrade your settlement to level 5 and build the Jomsviking Barracks
- Kill all targets of the Order of the Ancients and reveal its leader
However, regarding the previously mentioned disappointment. The latest Assassin’s Creed Valhalla update won’t include a much-requested feature: New Game+. The reasoning is pretty flimsy, but they apologize for not implementing this somewhat standard functionality. Although, to help you out, they added the ability to keep your hood in place at all times. Which doesn’t look as good as New Game+, but there’s not much more to do on that front.
This ends Assassin’s Creed Valhalla post-launch content. This update is no doubt in preparation for the expected 2023 release date of Assassin’s Creed Mirage. So watch out for that one next year.
