Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also becomes a roguelite: the (free) mode has a date
If there’s one thing you just can’t discuss about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla , it’s the post-launch support Ubisoft has given its titanic creature. The game, already gigantic in itself, saw the arrival of expansions after expansions, up to the Ragnarok’s Dawn – in which they took on the role of none other than Odin , linked to Eivor in ways that we will not anticipate in this one. site. If interested, find the box set with the base game and expansions on Amazon .
The Norse god is also the protagonist of a further novelty coming to the game: the roguelite mode , entitled The Forgotten Saga and coming free for all players.
Already confirmed last June, the latter has now been shown in detail with a video, with Ubisoft also setting an appointment with its release for next August 2 . Curiously, the date was not mentioned directly in the video, but reported by the (official) Ubisoft Gameplan account to users asking for details in the comments .
Also in the comments, it was also pointed out that this mode will introduce new Trophies and Achievements , which should make the joy of those who love to face these challenges to collect them all.
This time, as Odin we will have to face dungeons in Niflheim , while increasingly difficult challenges await us at the gate. Being roguelite mechanics, our travels to the four regions of the kingdom will be full of risks, because even if we can keep our equipment with us (finding more and more strong ones), the weapon that will be at our service will instead depend on the run. .
The risk factor that comes with rogue games, where death has a weight, will also allow you to make strategic decisions , according to Ubisoft: in some moments you will wonder if it is worth continuing an exploration, with the risk of having to start again from zero, or if it is not better to go back and keep what you have earned to be on the safe side.
This mode, as we anticipated at the beginning, will be available for free for all owners of the game .
Previously, we also reviewed content such as The Siege of Paris and Age of Druids (both featuring Eivor), before getting to know the aforementioned Dawn of Ragnarok . We will now see how this further update will reshuffle the cards.
