Ubisoft has detailed the next update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which will release on the 27th September (that’s tomorrow at the time of writing!). The patch has two headline acts: the introduction of new facility called the Rune Forge, and the second part of the Tombs of the Fallen storyline. It also sets the stage for the upcoming Oskoreia Festival — another of the game’s seasonal events.
It’s quite a meaty update then, and it’ll likely be one of the last big slices of support that Valhalla will receive.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Update 1.6.1 Patch Notes
New Settlement Building: Rune Forge
The Rune Forge can be built once Ravensthorpe has been upgraded to Level 4. With the Forge, you can turn the perks of your currently owned gear into new runes in exchange for silver. Explore the world of Valhalla to find more gear and turn their perks into valuable runes!
Tombs of the Fallen Pack 2
The journey of Tombs of the Fallen comes to an epic conclusion in this all-new addition. Find your way through three mysterious tombs rigged with ancient traps and complex puzzles. Only the most dedicated adventurers will discover buried secrets from a fallen civilization.
Observe and explore deep waters, molten lava, and Isu teachings to solve ancient puzzles and acquire lost treasures.
The veil of Oskoreia covers Ravensthorpe one more time. This October, take on the Wild Hunt of the Oskoreia Festival by defending your settlement from the threat of harmful spirits and prove the strength of the Raven Clan. In this free, limited-time event, you’ll find new activities, quests, and a wealth of new exclusive rewards. The Oskoreia Festival will be available from October 20 to November 10.
