Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been continually updated with new mechanics which perhaps gives the game more value than some of its predecessors. To know more about how the game has changed, check out IGN India’s reassessment of the game six months after its launch. The game is set to receive extra expansions and support well into its second year, which is a first for the franchise. Of course, we now know that these updates are experimental in nature due to Ubisoft’s recently announced development of a fully live-service Assassin’s Creed game/platform.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, with both of its expansions available as part of its season pass as well as being sold individually.
