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.
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.
