Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s first Season, named “Yule Season,” is now available. This Season will last for three months and include exclusive narrative content and in-game events accessible to all players for free.
To experience the Yule Festival, players must reach England and complete either of the first narrative arcs: Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire. When players visit the settlement after clearing one of those narrative arcs, the Yule Festival will commence. This event will last until January 7 in a dedicated area of the settlement. It will include a new Drinking game, an Archery mini-game, a Fist Fight tournament, and two new character quests. Exclusive event rewards such as a new gear set, decorations, and more will also be available.
There will also be a second Yule Season update in February, adding more content. This content includes:
- 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
Additionally, in a fun and unexpected twist, the real-life Ravensthorpe is also celebrating the launch of this season with the Lord of the Manor, Charlie Reeve, declaring a week-long Valhalliday. The local Chequers Pub & Village Shop, the village hub, will be offering an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla-themed takeaway menu to patrons.
Ubisoft has also donated $5,000 to support Ravensthorpe’s playground project and other community projects.
More Seasons will be coming to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for the duration of 2021, and each update will include slews of new, free, post-launch content.
