'Assassin's Creed Valhalla' Update Adds Feature Fans Have Been Begging For

'Assassin's Creed Valhalla' Update Adds Feature Fans Have Been Begging For

Assassin's Creed Valhalla has now been out for a good long while. The players that are still conquering Britain while waiting for the Ireland DLC to come out might be pretty used to Eivor's tricks by now. Yeah, Eivor we know you can perform cool kills, we've seen them all before. We don't always need that slow-mo look at how you decapitate someone, thanks. And so, thanks to a new update from Ubisoft, you're no longer required to watch Eivor show off.

In new update, 1.2.1 (via Kotaku), Ubisoft has allowed players to turn off the cinematics that trigger when you're performing a finisher move. Although, yes, this camera is cool for a while, sometimes you do just really want to get on with bashing the head of another enemy in, or maybe you've just spotted a cat you want to pet. What? It's genuinely a highlight of the game as you can see in the video below.

The update also adds some new skills for you to play around with. These are:

  • Cold Rage - Ignore hit interruptions while performing successive regular melee attacks. This effect recharges after a few seconds.
  • Eye of the North - Prevents flinching from hits while aiming with your bow. This effect recharges after a few seconds.
  • Intense Rage - Ignore hit interruptions while performing your next off-hand parry or special attack. This effect recharges after a few seconds.

Other improvements include allowing the Altair and Bayek outfits to be included in Transmog upgrades (you can read about Transmog here, it's another great update), and adding more fish into the game.

There is a really long list of updates, bug fixes, and balancing items on the Valhalla blog for you to look at. I'm particularly thankful the Ubisoft is fixing a bunch of the broken interactions seen throughout the world - I've had to pause playthroughs when NPCs were being fussy so hopefully, 1.2.1 helps players with overcoming those bugs.
