On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the Assassin’s Creed series, the first part of which was released on consoles on November 13, 2007, Ubisoft made several important announcements and launched an anniversary site.
First, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will receive new content in the second year of support. Festivals will return, Mastery Challenge will receive a second content pack, an armory will be upgraded and a new dungeon will be added. But what is more interesting, the completely new game mode with elements of rogue-lite called The Forgotten Saga will be released in the summer. And finally, Avor will get the final episode of his own story. Both The Forgotten Saga and Avor’s latest mission will be free for all players.
Second, the peaceful mode of Discovery Tour: Viking Age will take into account the shortcomings that players have noticed in Assassin’s Creed Origins and Odyssey. In addition, this version of the game will have special opportunities for educational institutions. As before, Discovery Tour: Viking Age will be sold separately, but all owners of the main game will receive it automatically.
Third, Assassin’s Creed Origins has finally received a patch that unlocks a 60 fps screen refresh rate for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
And finally, Ubisoft announced that in September, at a special event, the company will talk about the future of the Assassin’s Creed series. Where and to what time will we go this time? Maybe finally to Ukraine during the Hetmanate? It would be cool!
