Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will get its final DLC in December, but it won’t get a new game+

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will receive its latest DLC – The Last Chapter – on December 6, but unfortunately it won’t get the “much-requested” New Game+ feature.

Ubisoft shared the news in a blog, and he revealed that The Last Chapter would wrap up “two incredible years of launch support”. The final chapter will arrive alongside Title Update 1.6.2, and it will serve as a “touching and intimate conclusion to Eivor’s saga” and “tie together some of the storylines developed throughout the game and provide closure to your time among the Raven Clan.”

Those wishing to see the end of Eivor’s story will need to complete a few items, and the full list is as follows;

  • Complete the main storyline committing to all territories of England
  • Complete the mythic story arcs of Asgard and Jotunheim
  • Upgrade your settlement to level 5 and build the Jomsviking Barracks
  • Kill all targets of the Order of the Ancients and reveal its leader

Ubisoft has also confirmed that it will no longer be hosting limited-time festival events in Ravensthorpe. However, all rewards from past festivals will be available from vendors after completing The First Night of Samhain quest. There will also be brand new “thank you for your continued support” rewards.

As for New Game+, which Ubisoft has acknowledged is a “highly requested feature”, it will not be added to the game.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was designed as a unique Assassin’s Creed experience, significantly different from its predecessors in its structure, offering new ways to interact with the world and its characters,” Ubisoft wrote. “When investigating the implementation of New Game+, we realized that the depth of the game gave us limited options to make replayability unique and rewarding.”

While New Game+ isn’t coming, there will be a few new additions before Ubisoft focuses on Assassin’s Creed for future titles, including an option to keep your hood open at all times. There will also be a few other surprises, but Ubisoft is saving them for its “final goodbye”.

As the sun sets in Valhalla, another sun rises for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a new platform and hub for future Assassin’s Creed games. Ubisoft has revealed that the first two games that will be part of Infinity will include one that follows the life of a Shinobi in feudal Japan and another helmed by Watch Dogs: Legion director Clint Hocking that seems to have something to do with witchcraft.
