AC Valhalla’s Last Update Ever Arrives Tomorrow

assassins creed valhalla update

But it’s nothing special…

Sadly, fans of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which was released way back in 2020, will bid farewell to the game tomorrow… In a way. Today, Ubisoft announced that tomorrow, the 21st of February, will see the last-ever update for the game rolled out across all platforms.

But aside from a few bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements, there’s nothing tangible to be gained from the update. It’s a simple nod farewell and a vanishing into darkness for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which saw one of the lengthiest and most dense lifecycles out of any game in franchise history.

To Valhalla

By now, everyone is likely finished with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – those that played it, of course. It was a tumultuous reception for the game, which was shunned by many because of its deep, mythical roots and fantastic, RPG-based gameplay. Fortunately for those particular players, Ubisoft intends to return to the traditional gameplay of days gone by with AC Mirage in 2023.

Whether you played it or not, it’s time to say ‘that’s a wrap’ for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and watch as our Viking brothers move on to the great feasting table that serves as their afterlife, or something.

Tomorrow’s final, final update brings a few bug fixes to Xbox, PlayStation, and PC platforms, and it’s such a minuscule update that on PS5 it measures in at just 500 MB. Sadly, it’s not such a high note for the game to finish on, particularly as fans feel that they were robbed of a New Game+ mode and the final DLC, The Last Chapter, really wasn’t all that enjoyable or story-friendly.

However, it isn’t the end of all things, as there’s a massive schedule ahead for Assassin’s Creed, despite Ubisoft having recently cancelled a handful of projects.

In the coming months (and beyond), there’s a whole host of Assassin’s Creed content coming, from a live-action adaptation to a new mobile game (which was recently leaked) and from AC Mirage to AC Hexe, a dark, morbid, and violent adventure.

It doesn’t end with Valhalla.

  1. The point is that nothing actually started with AC Valhalla.It was a set back and Ubi has lots of catching up! Have they learned anything from this huge mistake?Time will tell…

    1. Valhalla was not a setback or mistake, mine and many many others agree this was a fantastic adventure of a game with a new feel and an emersive Viking style story. A world we got lost in for hours and days. This is one of if not the best game I’ve ever played and I’m very sad to see it go without a final goodbye and new game plus mode. That alone would keep its fans playing for at least another month/months. I’m hoping later down the road it will return in an Eivors continued journey. Granted it was not the usual AC buy that was the point add new content and keep the AC along side it. Well done and will be very missed.

  2. People may talk trash about the game, but AC Valhalla is one of the few games that I know I definitely got my moneys worth out of. Thanks for an outstanding game.

  3. Strangely enough, I enjoyed Valhalla far more then the other AC games… The ones I played anyway. I was able to empathize with Eivor and her clan much easier than with the male characters of most of the earlier games. Did Valhalla have problems? Yes however I was able to overlook them for the sole reason that I was able to play as a female Viking who bashed heads. Being a gal myself I get far more enjoyment from any game if I can choose my own gender for the main character. Games are still predominantly male character oriented and I find most of them boring in some respects. I have been gaming since Pong and like how games have been giving us a choice. Farewell Eivor. It’s been a blast.

  4. I’ve stopped and started and restarted playing Valhalla due to me playing other games alongside this one. I’ve not yet completed it but feel like I’m close. When I do, I’ll probably leave it 6 months and restart it again. I’ve never used New game+ mode and never will so it’s no lost for me! Looking forward to Mirage!

  5. Lost interest in valhalla pretty early on when Loki wasn’t a out n out villan, and the odin fight goes on far 2 long needs a story or ivars adventures in America like who goes with him does he know who Loki really is and does he become a Indian so much to tell ubisoft have missed a trick big like

  6. So can we still play on Xbox after they turn there back on one of the worlds greatest games I just don’t want to have to trow it away cuz u have to log in to ubi to play

  7. I absolutely loved AC Valhalla!!! I hope to see more. Been a fan and playing since 2007. I look forward to all future games and content! Thank you Ubisoft for Valhalla!

  8. It’s sad that ubi sucks is going back to the boring old ac game play the RPG element and the mythical element was great that’s the only reason way I played an ac game again ac one was great but the rest was just a copy and paste for the frist one
