Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s next major expansion, Dawn of Ragnarök, will be releasing March 10. Dawn of Ragnarök will be available as a separate purchase for $39.99 by all owners of the main game. Additionally, Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories, with two stories that feature Eivor and Kassandra available for fans tomorrow, December 14. Both stories are available for free for owners of the respective base games, with one story featuring Eivor and Kassandra available in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and one story featuring Kassandra or Alexios available in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
With development led by Ubisoft Sofia, Dawn of Ragnarök is the next major expansion, continuing Year 2 of post-launch support for Assassin’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, Odin’s beloved son, Baldr, has been taken prisoner by the unkillable fire giant, Surtr. In Dawn of Ragnarök, 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 Ragnarök between Dec 13, 2021 and April 9, 2022 will receive the Twilight Pack and will have immediate access to the items in 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.**
Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories were also announced, 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 “What happens when two Assassin’s Creed heroes meet?”, exploring the connections in space and time between these Assassin’s Creed heroes to provide a unique narrative experience to players.
Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories will be available for free for owners of the respective base games on December 14; one story will be available in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and one story will be available in Assassin’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 story line. For the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla story, A Fated Encounter, players must have reached Settlement Level 4 and completed the quest “A Wise Friend,” where Eivor helps Valka establish herself in Ravensthorpe. For the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey story, Those Who Are Treasured, players will need to have completed Chapter 1 and reached Megaris to access the content, but it’s recommended that players finish the main game’s three story arcs (Family, Cult of Kosmos and Mythology) to avoid spoilers.
*Immediacy only applies to pre-order or purchase of digital version. Offer ends on April 9, 2022.
**The Twilight Pack can be unlocked immediately in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla by all players who pre-order or purchase the new expansion digital version.
