Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released as a cross-generational title back in November 2020. Here’s what we had to say about the Viking-themed installment in our review.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an Assassin’s Creed game through and through, but the many improvements to the RPG formula introduced in Origins, improved storytelling, and an amazing atmosphere make it a much better game than its predecessors. The conditions under which the game was developed are unfortunate and hard to forget, which is a shame, because the behavior of a few individuals will inevitably affect the perception most people will have of the game. Whether or not to support the game is up to the player, but there’s no denying that this is a quality open world title, developed with a level of care on par with that put into the best entries in the long-running franchise.
Last month, Ubisoft announced that Valhalla’s final content update was the “Final Chapter.” This conclusion to the Valhalla story was released last week.
