Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Final Title Update 1.6.2 is coming soon, but without New Game Plus
Two years after the release, Eivor’s story will soon come to an end: Ubisoft will release the last content update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in just over two weeks.
Title Update 1.6.2 implements the action-adventure epilogue, which will be free for all players who own Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. A New Game Plus mode is not included, although this has been requested by fans for a long time.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Final Chapter in December
The update appears according to Ubisofts blog entry on December 6th and brings Eivor’s saga to a “touching and intimate conclusion”. Various storylines that have arisen in the course of the story should be brought to an end. Your time with the Raven clan will also be over.

However, if you want to experience this, you must first have completed four key elements in order to start the epilogue:
- Completing the main story, i.e. forming alliances with all areas of England
- Complete the story arcs in Asgard and Jötunheim
- Settlement must be at least level 5 and the warrior camp must be established
- kill all targets of the Order of Elders and reveal the chief
If you meet all of these requirements, you can start the epilogue on December 6th. In all probability you will then experience the last moments of Eivor and his fate.
No more festivals, but no New Game Plus either
Since the content support for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla comes to an end with the Title Update 1.6.2, there will be no more seasonal festivals in the future. Those who were unable to participate in Jul, Eastre, Sigrblot, and Asgardsreid in the past will still have a chance to receive the rewards.
Once the update has been released and the quest “The First Night of Samhain” has been completed, the rewards from past festivals will be available for purchase from merchants in England. All you need is some silver. The update also adds new rewards as a small thank you, which can also be purchased.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft has canceled the long-awaited New Game Plus mode. Due to the structure of the open world game, it is not possible to include such a mode where the replayability is also worthwhile:
“Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was created as a unique experience, structurally very different from previous parts of Assassin’s Creed, offering new ways to engage with the world and its characters. When examining the possibility of implementing New Game+, we realized that Because of the depth of the game, we have very limited opportunities to make replays worthwhile or even special for you,” the development team said.
The future of Assassin’s Creed
With the final update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft is also looking towards the future. After all, the French publisher still has great ambitions for the game series. In the coming year, Assassin’s Creed Mirage will temporarily leave the role-playing path that was last taken. Instead, the upcoming part of the series should be a return to old virtues.
However, Ubisoft does not completely leave behind the paths that were taken with Origins, Odyssey and Valhalla. Assassin’s Creed Red is an open-world game set in feudal Japan. In addition, there is another Assassin’s Creed project in development, Codename Hexe, which is said to be more experimental.
