The game Assassin’s Creed After all, Valhalla will not be receiving a new game plus

The final title update will be available on December 6th

Ubisoft Montreal revealed on Friday that the final post-launch update for 2020’s Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla will be released on December 6, signaling the conclusion of production on the game. However, the final version does not feature a new game-plus mode.

“We appreciate that this news may be disappointing,” the studio stated, “but we hope that the additional material released in the last months, including never-before-seen adventures like Forgotten Saga, has given an interesting and difficult experience for those wanting more replayable content.”

The Forgotten Saga, a “roguelite-inspired” mode, was included in an update on August 2. It was revealed in June. Nonetheless, the game’s community had long requested a new-game plus option, in which the player continues the campaign with the progression, build, and gear achieved on their initial playthrough intact. Valhalla’s two predecessors, Assassin’s Creed Origins in 2017 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in 2018, both received additional game-plus modes after their initial releases.

“Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been designed as a distinct Assassin’s Creed experience, one that is structurally distinct from its predecessors, giving new methods of connecting with the environment and its characters,” Ubisoft Montreal explained. “When researching the implementation of New Game+, we learned that the game’s depth provided us with few possibilities for making replayability unique and rewarding.”

The title update 1.6.2 will be released on December 6 and will contain “The Last Chapter,” which the company describes as “a heartfelt and personal end to Eivor’s journey.” The update also includes a community request – the ability to maintain Eivor’s hood on even while removing his cloak. According to Ubisoft Montreal, the change is solely aesthetic and will have no effect on gameplay or detection.

“With this title update, we also have a few more surprises in store… but we’ll hold those for our last farewell,” the company wrote.
