Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s developer Ubisoft has announced the next major expansion for the game. The downloadable content (DLC) expansion pack — Dawn of Ragnarök — will be available to purchase separately. The latest DLC marks the second year of the game’s post-launch support. Additionally, Ubisoft has also announced Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories featuring characters Eivor and Kassandra. The Crossover Stories will be available as two stories and it is the first cross-game project in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
Ubisoft announced that the second expansion pack — Dawn of Ragnarök — for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be available for players from March 10, 2022. As mentioned, this marks the second year of the game’s post-launch support. Here’s the storyline of the game’s second DLC from Ubisoft: “Eivor must embrace their destiny as Odin, the Norse god of Battle and Wisdom”. The publisher says that 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”.
