Last week, Ubisoft’s latest assassin adventure, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla saw a new update that features a wide range of fixes and additions. The update became available for all platforms on January 14, 2021.
Title update 1.1.1 was detailed in an official Reddit post, And the list is quite extensive! First of all, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla now has access to Ubis oft Connect achievements, so if you’re a completer, this is likely great news for you. Originally, PC gamers were confused by the lack of achievements for the game, but Ubisoft clarified that this was intentional
There are also some accessibility additions, allowing players to preview the options for colorblind and subtitles. Also, letters found in the world now support text-to-speech conversion.
Players will also receive a reward for a “Death Stranding Tribute” and quivers and rations will automatically recharge after upgrading while depleted. There have also been some balance adjustments and some improvements to the game’s overall performance and stability. Bjorn will no longer be removed from the ship’s crew and the guards will no longer ignore Eivor, as the player would “burn his faction members with jugs of oil.”
Graphical issues have been fixed with the optimization of PS4 textures. Animation issues with NPCs and some strange issues with Eivor, such as slipping feet, also seem to have been fixed.
Perhaps the most robust part of the list comes from the numerous changes, although the missions and the exploration of the world come. These changes appear to resolve many issues where a player would get stuck and unable to progress, such as a boss fight during “A Cruel Fate” or getting stuck while fishing during “The Bakers Plaint.” And there is also a fix that prevented players from examining a cow.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launched last year and saw twice as many players as the previous game in the franchise, and in November it was the best-selling game in the UK. After launch, the game also saw XP increases added to the game store.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, PS5, PC, Stadia, and Luna.
