Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will get its final DLC – The Last Chapter – on December 6th, but unfortunately it won’t get the “highly requested” New Game+ feature.
Ubisoft shared the news via a blog, revealing that The Last Chapter will conclude “two amazing years of launch support”. Arriving alongside Title Update 1.6.2, the final chapter will serve as a “touching and intimate conclusion to Eivor’s saga” and will “conclude some of the storylines developed throughout the game and conclude your time in the Raven clan.”
Those who want to see the end of Eivor’s story have a few things to do, and the full list is as follows:
- Complete the main story by committing to all of England’s territories
- Complete Asgard and Jotunheim Mythic story arcs
- Upgrade your settlement to level 5 and build Jomsviking barracks
- Kill all Order of the Elder targets and reveal its leader
Ubisoft also confirmed that it will no longer be hosting limited-time festival events in Ravensthorpe. However, all past festival rewards are available from vendors after completing the quest The First Night of Samhain. There are also brand new “thank you for your continued support” rewards.
New Game+, which Ubisoft described as a “highly requested feature”, will not be added to the game.
“Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was developed as a unique Assassin’s Creed experience, with a very different structure from its predecessors, offering new ways of engaging with the world and its characters,” wrote Ubisoft. “As we explored the implementation of New Game+, we found that the depth of the game gave us limited opportunities to make replayability unique and rewarding.”

While New Game+ isn’t coming, there will be a few new additions before Ubisoft shifts its Assassin’s Creed focus to future titles, including an option to keep your hood up at all times. There will also be a few surprises, but Ubisoft is saving these for its “final goodbye”.
As the sun sets in Valhalla, another sun rises for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a new platform and hub for future Assassin’s Creed games. Ubisoft has revealed that the first two games to be part of Infinity will feature one following the life of a shinobi in feudal Japan and another to be directed by Watch Dogs: Legion director Clint Hocking and seems to have something to do with witchcraft.
