Ubisoft has announced that Assassinâ€™s Creed Valhallaâ€™s next major expansion, Dawn Of RagnarÃ¶k, will be releasing on 10 March 2022. Dawn Of RagnarÃ¶k will be available as a separate purchase by all owners of the main game.
Additionally, Ubisoft announced Assassinâ€™s Creed Crossover Stories, with two stories that feature Eivor and Kassandra available for fans today from 14 December 2021. Both stories are available for free for owners of the respective base games, with one story featuring Eivor and Kassandra available in Assassinâ€™s Creed Valhalla, and one story featuring Kassandra or Alexios available in Assassinâ€™s Creed Odyssey.
With development led by Ubisoft Sofia, Dawn Of RagnarÃ¶k is the next major expansion, continuing Year 2 of post-launch support for Assassinâ€™s Creed Valhalla. In this expansion, Eivor must embrace their destiny as Odin, the Norse god of Battle and Wisdom. The dwarven kingdom of Svartalfheim is crumbling, and amid the chaos, Odinâ€™s beloved son, Baldr, has been taken prisoner by the unkillable fire giant, Surtr. In Dawn of RagnarÃ¶k, players will be able to unleash new divine powers as they continue their legendary Viking saga by embarking on a desperate rescue quest through a mythological world of contrasts.
All players purchasing Dawn Of RagnarÃ¶k between 13 December 2021 and 9 April 2022 will receive the Twilight Pack and will have immediate access to the main game. This exclusive bonus includes the Dellingr’s Envoy Raven Skin, the Havardr Lynx Mount, the Twilight Gear Set and the Algurnir Dane Axe Weapon.
Assassinâ€™s Creed Crossover Stories is the first cross-game project on the franchise, led by Ubisoft Quebec in close collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal. The content aims at answering the question â€œWhat happens when two Assassinâ€™s Creed heroes meet?â€, exploring the connections in space and time between these Assassinâ€™s Creed heroes to provide a unique narrative experience to players.
Assassinâ€™s Creed Crossover Stories will be available for free for owners of the respective base games on 14 December 2021; one story will be available in Assassinâ€™s Creed Valhalla, and one story will be available in Assassinâ€™s Creed Odyssey. These stories explore the ties between the heroes of the two games, featuring new environments to explore as well as a rich storyline.
For the Assassinâ€™s Creed Valhalla story, A Fated Encounter,Â Â players must have reached Settlement Level 4 and completed the quest â€œA Wise Friend,â€ where Eivor helps Valka establish herself in Ravensthorpe.Â For the Assassinâ€™s Creed Odyssey story,Â Those Who Are Treasured, players will need to have completed Chapter 1 and reached Megaris to access the content, but itâ€™s recommended that players finish the main gameâ€™s three-story arcs (Family, Cult of Kosmos and Mythology) to avoid spoilers.
Assassinâ€™s Creed ValhallaÂ is available on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One consoles, PlayStationÂ®5, PlayStationÂ®4, the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC.
