Assassin's Creed Valhalla's Last Story Chapter Release Date Announced, Won't Have New Game Plus

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Last Chapter Release Date Announced, Won’t Have New Game Plus

Ubisoft previously announced that it was going to wrap up support for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla with a final chapter that would let players say goodbye to Eivor. This free episode never had an exact release date until now. Ubisoft revealed that The Last Chapter will come to the action RPG on December 6 and spoke about what is in store for the game after that last big update.

The Last Chapter is, according to a post on the Ubisoft website, a “touching and intimate conclusion to Eivor’s saga,” but the studio didn’t delve much into the actual details of the story. Writer Darby McDevitt told Axios in February that it will answer lingering questions and seemed to hint that it would explain how Eivor’s remains ended up in North America.

But players will have to have gone through a decent portion of Valhalla in order to see this content. Playing The Last Chapter requires that users complete the main storyline, pledge all territories to England, finish the Asgard and Jotunheim arcs, upgrade the settlement to level five, build the Jomsviking barracks, and kill every Order of the Ancients target and discover their leader.

Ubisoft also addressed how the game will run after this patch. First and foremost, it will no longer have limited-time events. These festivals had unique gear players could earn during certain times. This gear will still be in the game through merchants located across England after completing a mission in the Glowecestrescire arc called “The First Night of Samhain.” Users can buy these items with silver, Valhalla‘s standard currency, and more will also be added to the game in an effort to thank fans for their continued support.

However, Ubisoft also had some bad news and explained that Valhalla won’t be getting a New Game Plus mode despite it being heavily requested. The team said that Valhalla is a complicated game with a different structure that limited how a second run could be “unique and rewarding.” Valhalla‘s structure was called out specifically likely as a way to preemptively combat those pointing out how Origins and Odyssey both got New Game Plus modes in post-launch updates. Ubisoft said it understands if players are disappointed, but noted that the recent roguelite Forgotten Saga update adds more replayability.

This send-off patch will also have some undisclosed “surprises,” as well as an option to leave Eivor’s hood up at all times regardless if players have their cloak on. This won’t have any effect on gameplay and will be just a cosmetic option for those who want to look more like an assassin.

Ubisoft is winding down support for Valhalla as many more entries sit on the horizon. The company is developing a multiplayer Assassin’s Creed, a full blown RPG set in Japan codenamed Assassin’s Creed Red, a mysterious entry codenamed Assassin’s Creed Hexe, a mobile RPG set in China codenamed Assassin’s Creed Jade, a VR entry, and Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which will be in Baghdad and call back to the series’ roots.
