It’s not secret by this point that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is getting a second round of DLC updates and expansions in 2022. However, it’s looking like Ubisoft is eager to show fans exactly what’s in store for them the next go around the sun, as this coming Monday, December 13, Ubisoft will be hosting a live event to share details on the new content. It has been rumored this next expansion to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will explore Helheim (the Norse version of Hell) which is sure to excite Norse mythology fans.
Over on Twitter, Ubisoft has teased the event with the classic Assassin’s Creed symbol surrounded by fire and ice saying to tune in Monday, December 13 at 9 AM PDT/6 PM CET as “There is more to see than Midgard in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla“. As mentioned above it has been long rumored now that the expansion, or at least one of the expansions, will focus on Helheim and is said to be an enormous update, far bigger than any of the stories from 2021. In fact, the expansion is rumored to be so big it was apparently considered to be a standalone release before being folded back into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
It has also been rumored that the title of the DLC will be called Dawn of Ragnarok, and will also take players to the realm of Svartalfheim, presumably as the main hub area of the content. New powers for Eivor have also been heavily teased, and a trophy list has also teased a new item to upgrade called Odin’s Bracer.
Valhalla‘s two previous expansions, Wrath of the Druids and Siege of Paris, were both received mostly favorably by critics and fans, so hopefully this next expansion does what it can to top both stories. Considering the rumored enormity of the expansion, it shouldn’t be too tall a task to really create something great here, especially if it includes Ragnarok. It remains to be seen however, how much Ubisoft is willing to charge for a massive expansion like this. It’ll be interesting to see if it releases at the price of a full-fledged release or less.
As far as the future of Assassin’s Creed as a whole, it’s newest iteration, rumored to be called Assassin’s Creed Infinity, will apparently be a shared space for the whole franchise allowing players to access all content in one place. Currently, it’s unclear how that will be acheived. Hopefully news will surface on that sooner rather than later.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available now for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, and PC.
