Ubisoft unveils the new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn Of Ragnarök DLC, which features 35 hours of gameplay and puts players in the role of Odin.
Ubisoft has just unveiled the latest DLC expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, promising over 35 hours of additional content featuring the gods of Norse mythology. Recent leaks suggest that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla would get a massive new story campaign captioned “Dawn of Ragnarök“, the one insiders compared to the critically acclaimed Sony film God of the war restart from 2018.
Released last November and set between the years 872 and 878 AD, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla told the story of Eivor Varinsdottir, a customizable Viking warrior tasked with building a new settlement for their clan in what is now known as the British Isles. Two major DLC expansions have been released for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla until now: The wrath of the druids, who pitted Eivor against a cult known as the Children of Danu in 879 AD in Ireland, and Paris siege, which was based on the historic Viking raid against French ruler Charles le Gros. Smaller updates added in an educational Discovery Tour mode and additional dungeons known as Tombs Of The Fallen, and it looks like it won’t be long before Ubisoft adds even more content from story to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – as a cross with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey which will see Eivor cross paths with the Greek heroine Kassandra.
A recent blog post on Playstation.com presents Ubisoft’s next two-year roadmap for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. In addition to what was previously revealed Assassin’s Creed Odyssey crossing, this roadmap confirms that Dawn of Ragnarök will actually be launched in March. This new story will put players in the role of the Norse god Odin, who must protect the kingdom of Asgard from the combined forces of the frost giants of Jotunheim and the demonic forces of Muspelheim – led by Odin’s nemesis, the fiery Surtr. Ubisoft states that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok will feature around 35 hours of playtime on a new map that’s about a third the size of England from the main game.

Until now, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla received positive reviews from fans and critics alike, even becoming one of the best-selling titles in franchise history. The next Dawn of Ragnarök will likely build on that success, for while Eivor glimpsed the memories of their ancestor Odin for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, it seems like Dawn of Ragnarök will finally put players in the role of the Allfather himself.
