Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s next major expansion, Dawn of Ragnarok, releases on March 10. Dawn of Ragnarok sees Eivor step into the role of Odin once again and travel to the dwarven realm of Svartalfheim, where the immortal fire giant, Surtr, has kidnapped Odin’s son Baldr. Fantastical mythic realms are not the only new features players can expect: in Dawn of Ragnarok, Odin will have access to new divine powers that allow players to absorb enemy powers and use them to their advantage.
Available as a separate purchase for owners of the main game, Dawn of Ragnarok is accessible after players reach settlement level 4 and unlock Valka’s hut. While there is no required power level, it’s recommended that players be around level 340 to avoid having too tough of a time in Svartalfheim. All Xbox players that purchase the expansion between December 13, 2021, and April 9, 2022, will immediately receive the in-game Twilight Pack. The pack includes the Dellingr’s Envoy Raven Skin, the Havardr Lynx Mount, the Twilight Gear Set, and the Algurnir Dane Axe Weapon.
While Dawn of Ragnarok may be a few months away, a new free update for all Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey players launches on December 14. Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories is a cross-game project that brings Kassandra and Eivor together for the first time, and includes a new story in both Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Each story is available to owners of each respective game. Owners of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will get a new story titled Those Who Are Treasured, and owners of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be able to play its crossover story, A Fated Encounter. You’ll need to own both games to experience everything that Crossover Stories has to offer. To play A Fated Encounter, Valhalla players will need to reach settlement level 4 and unlock Valka’s hut. Odyssey players will need to complete Chapter 1 and reach Megaris to access Those Who Are Treasured, although it’s recommended that players finish the main game to avoid spoilers.
With so many new experiences coming to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and even Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, now is the perfect time to jump back in or start these epic journeys for the first time.
