The Yule season as begun in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has begun on December 17th, and it’s gonna last for a long while. During the event, all players are going to have access to “exclusive narrative content and in-game events,” all for free. The Yule celebration in Valhalla will last until January 7th, at which point the second half of the winter-themed content will commence in February.
So, first off, the Yuletide celebration. As I’ve said, it’s going to last until January 7th, and it’ll take place in a dedicated area of your settlement. The content will include “a new Drinking game, an Archery mini-game, a Fist Fight tournament, and two new character quests available in the settlement,” according to the press release. For your participation, you can earn “a new gear set, settlement decorations, and more.” Keep in mind, you will have to have completed either the Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire narrative arc to enjoy the festivities.
As for the second part of the Yule Season in AC Valhalla, the one in February, you can expect even more new content from that. Yes, including even a brand new game mode. In fact, here’s what’s waiting for you, according to Ubisoft.
- River Raids: A new game mode building on the core raiding mechanic will be introduced, delivering a dynamic, challenging, and highly replayable raid experience. As the River Raids rely heavily on the Jomsviking recruits, players can hire Jomsviking from their friends online to take on an entire crew. The River Raids game mode features raids with higher stakes and different difficulty levels.
- Ranks for Jomsviking: In the Yule Season, an update to the Jomsviking feature will allow players’ Jomsviking to earn XP and rank up – the higher the rank, the more silver players can earn when their Jomsviking are recruited by other players.
- Additional new abilities and rewards.
So, yeah; you can look forward to some pretty happy holidays in Valhalla. Whether it’s drinking yourself into a stupor and punching your cohorts or raiding innocents, I’m sure you’ll enjoy every second of it. Skål!
