The first season of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Yule Season, is available starting today. Yule Season lasts for three months with exclusive narrative content and in-game events accessible to all players for free.
Celebrate winter as part of the Yule Festival. During the Yuletide celebration, players can join in the festivities with a new drinking game, an archery mini-game, a fistfight tournament, and two new character quests available in the settlement. In addition, players can earn exclusive rewards including a new gear set, settlement decorations, and more.
To experience the Yule Festival, players must reach England and complete one of the first narrative arcs: either Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire. The festival is triggered automatically when players visit the settlement.
A second update will add more content for the Yule Season in February:
- River Raids: A new game mode building on the core raiding mechanic will be introduced. As the River Raids rely heavily on the Jomsviking recruits, players can hire Jomsviking from their friends online to take on an entire crew. The River Raids game mode features raids with higher stakes and different difficulty levels.
- Ranks for Jomsviking: In the Yule Season, an update to the Jomsviking feature allows players’ Jomsviking to earn XP and rank up – the higher the rank, the more silver players can earn when their Jomsviking are recruited by other players
- Additional new abilities and rewards
Seasons extend the post-launch experience of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla throughout 2021. Ubisoft promises to deliver a variety of new free content for all players focused on gameplay and world evolution. Updates will come in at different points during the seasons.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia.
