AC Valhalla Yule Festival Guide – How to Start it?


Here’s how to start the Yule Festival in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and celebrate Yuletide like Vikings:

  • First, download the free AC Valhalla Season 1 Update 1 which is v 1.1.0.
  • With that done, head towards your settlement and go towards the east side of it.
  • A cutscene will get triggered which tells you more about the decked out settlement due to the festive season.
  • Remember that you have to complete Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire story arcs in order to get the Yule Festival access. Forming an Alliance is a prerequisite for this.
  • There’s no power level requirement, luckily.
  • There will be some Yule Festival events which will help you earn Yule Tokens, a new event currency.
  • With this currency, you can purchase items from this event from Norvid’s Festival Shop which include new Tattoos, Armor and more Cosmetics.
  • There are quite a bit of loot and rewards that you can grab during this festival too.

When Does the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Yule Festival end?

The Yule Festival in AC Valhalla will occur from December 17, 2020 to January 7, 2021 so you have some time to complete the side quests and get your loot and rewards before time runs out. The rewards that you will earn during this festive event will only be available during this specific period, so hurry and get them all.
