Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been an enormous hit for Ubisoft. The open world Viking journey launched in November final 12 months on each PS5 and PS4. Not lengthy after, the French writer introduced that Valhalla had loved the “largest launch” in collection historical past. And earlier this week, Ubisoft confirmed that it had its best ever quarter when it comes to financials — an enormous turnover that was spearheaded by the success of Murderer’s Creed Valhalla.
With all of this in thoughts, it is sensible for Ubisoft to go all-in on Valhalla — and apparently, that is precisely what it will be doing. Throughout its most up-to-date earnings name, the corporate reiterated that post-launch assist for the sport is a precedence, stating that Valhalla will “profit from a stronger and longer post-launch programme” than Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
To recap, Odyssey’s post-launch assist was fairly stellar. It obtained two stable expansions (every break up throughout three episodes), and a boatload of free content material updates which added requested options, new quests, and extra. By comparability, Valhalla has began off fairly sluggish — but it surely’s honest to imagine that the continuing coronavirus pandemic has had an influence on the developer’s plans (in addition to the sport’s common bugginess).
That mentioned, February needs to be an enormous month for Valhalla. The sport’s ‘River Raid’ replace is due out this month, bringing an entire new exercise to the foggy shores of medieval England. A laundry record of bug fixes are additionally within the works, and at this level, we’re partly anticipating every little thing to drop without delay.
Past that, the title’s first growth, ‘Wrath of the Druids’ remains to be on target to launch this Spring. We needs to be listening to extra about that quickly.
In any case, if Valhalla does handle to outdo Odyssey’s post-launch roadmap, followers needs to be in for a deal with. Because it stands, the Murderer’s Creed neighborhood seems to be somewhat divided over the sport’s route; there was a little bit of an outcry lately relating to the title’s questionable microtransaction store. Let’s hope that these incoming updates patch issues up.
