Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the latest opus from the Award-winning Assassin’s Creed franchise, will have for the first time a Free Weekend starting today until February 28 on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation5, PlayStation4, Stadia, as well as Windows PC through the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store. During the Free Weekend players will have access to the full main game content, and their progression will carry over if they decide to purchase the game.
With development led by Ubisoft Montreal, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla offers players the captivating experience of playing as Eivor, a legendary Viking warrior, driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources in ninth century AD. Players can relive the ruthless fighting style of Viking warriors with a dynamic dual-wielding combat system and experience exciting gameplay features such as raids, assaults, and the settlement, as well as a substantial progression and gear upgrade system. Political alliances, combat decisions and dialogue choices can influence the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, so players must choose wisely to protect their clan’s home and their future.
In addition, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s next major expansion, Dawn of Ragnarok, will be released on March 10. Dawn of Ragnarok will be available as a separate purchase by all owners of the main game. Dawn of Ragnarok can also be purchased as part of the Ragnarok Edition of the game, which includes the main game and the expansion; or as part of the Digital Complete Edition of the game, which includes the main game, the Season Pass, the Ultimate Content Pack and Dawn of Ragnarok.
With development led by Ubisoft Sofia, Dawn of Ragnarok 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 Ragnarok, 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 Ragnarok until April 9, 2022, will receive the Twilight Pack which will be immediately unlockable 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.
