Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla today (Feb 16) receives a huge update that adds a new mode, features and fixes.
The biggest feature arriving with update 1.1.2 is the anticipated River Raids. The River Raids is part of the latest Yule Season and according to the Ubisoft blog post you must:
“Prepare your Jomsviking crew for this new highly replayable mode that will take you to unexplored regions of England, which is full of raiding opportunities. New loot, rewards, and challenges await the Raven Clan!”
New abilities and skills have also arrived with the update. New abilities include the Berserker Trap which “attaches a trap to your arrow, spreading hallucinatory powder. Any nearby movement causes the trap to trigger. Surprise clueless passersby!”
The Battle Cry has also been added. Its description reads: “In a fit of rage, Eivor lets out a blood-curdling scream, gaining strength and causing nearby enemies to stumble backwards in fear, interrupting their attacks.”
Finally in abilities, we have Shoulder Bash, which states: “Eivor performs a shoulder bash that pushes back enemies and destroys objects.”
New skills include Assassin’s Carry (automatically carry assassinated bodies), Assassin Slide (slide into enemies and knock them off balance) and Power Stroke (triggers a speed boost for your long ship).
Finishing up the new skills is Arrow Looter (increases the chances of looting extra arrows), Fight Ready (automatically fills one adrenaline slot) and finally Long Ship Brace (when in command of a ship, your crew will raise their shield with you).
As always the update will also make a number of fixes to reported bugs and quality of life improvements.
Update 1.1.2 comes in at 18.04 GB on PC, 10.23 GB on PS4, 11.18 GB on PS5, 15.27 GB on Xbox One and 19.53 GB on Xbox Series X|S.
The update should be live the next time you fire-up Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and you can read up on all the new features and improvements that update 1.1.2 brings via the Ubisoft blog post.
