Ubisoft today released the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Update 1.3.0 for download. A time for the patch release has already been set: The activation will take place at 2 p.m. CEST. Depending on the platform, a download of between 7 and 31.5 gigabytes is necessary. Ubisoft has already published the patch notes with the changes and innovations. The update paves the way for the DLC The Siege of Paris and the Sigrblot Festival, which will start shortly. There is also a new level scaling for opponents. The DLC The Siege of Paris will be available in the Season Pass from August 12th.
In addition, the start of the Sigrblot Festival is imminent: From July 29th, the new raid season will be celebrated with the time-limited “Time for Sigrblot Festival”. Until August 19th, new festive activities can be discovered in Ravensthorpe. This includes mock tournaments and dice mini-games, three new quests and exclusive rewards, including decorations for the settlement, equipment and weapons. In addition, the one-hand sword Skrofnung with Sigrblot brands can be purchased in the festival shop for a limited time.
To take part in the Sigrblot Festival time, you must have reached England and completed one of the first story arcs, Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire. Your settlement must be at least level 2. “An additional update is planned for a later time within the season and will introduce a new map pack for the river raids that will add more destinations on the rivers of Francia and Ireland,” said Ubisoft.
With the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Update 1.3.0 there is also a level scaling in the action role-playing game. The option allows you to determine whether and how strongly opponents should level with your hero. A total of five levels are available: In nightmare mode, the opponents are always more than 60 power levels above Eivor. If you wish, you can simply switch off the function in the settings. By the way: Boss opponents are not taken into account in the level scaling.
Eivor also learns new skills with the update. With Light Fingered, for example, you can now automatically collect surrounding loot, while with Thrill of War you can automatically generate adrenaline during a fight. With Heidrum Slam, on the other hand, you can ram the knee in an opponent’s face in a sprint. In Wolf Warrior, your damage increases the less energy you have. The patch is rounded off by a number of bug fixes and optimizations.
