Sharpen Your Axe in “River Raids”, Valhalla‘s Latest Addition
The Vikings of Ravensthorpe refuse to lay down their axes in this new update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Today, all players will be able to update their games to acquire a new mode, additional upgrades, and unlockable Settlement structures.
In the game’s newest “River Raids” mode, Eivor and their crew of Jomsvikings discover a different breed of pillaging opportunities through a new NPC named Vagn. Vagn and his crew will provide Eivor with a river map containing more intensifying raids. Within these higher-stakes raids, a stretch of noteworthy acquisitions awaits behind enemy lines. Therefore, your Jomsviking Lieutenant will lead the combative efforts of your other Jomsvikings. If your efforts aren’t well-thought-out with rations and executions, you can lose a soldier for the remainder of the River Raid. But if you prevail, you’ll ring in more resources with an upgraded Longship that is exclusive for River Raids.
In addition to the Jomsvikings, the new Hall will have three levels of ranking to increase recruitment chances from other players. Individual ranks for the warriors have also been implemented to strengthen the odds of survivability in River Raids. Both the Hall and a River Raid Dock are unlockable for your Settlement.
Finally, the Saint George Armor set and Great Sword are introduced in the Yule Season Update, along with three new Abilities to find within monasteries. These could seriously come in handy when attempting the River Raids, however. Harder challenges will present themselves should you find yourself stuck in action. Persistent soldiers could hunt you down the river with traps and arrows, as shown in the Update trailer by Ubisoft. Elisa Choi, Community Developer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, goes more into detail with the Update video itself.
Staying Up-To-Date with the Ravens
Furthermore, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s Season 2, entitled “Ostara”, will launch next month with a festival for Ravensthorpe. The season will also include a new mode that focuses on combat experiences, along with some fresh gear and items. In the meantime, you can take your fellow Vikings onto more difficult waves of carnage in the Yule Season Update. If you already downloaded the update, what are your thoughts on the content?
