Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Tombs of the Fallen

Ubisoft has released patch notes for title update 1.4.0 of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla which goes live tomorrow. It adds the Tombs of the Fallen – four puzzle-filled environments that can be discovered throughout the world. They become available once the settlement is unlocked in the story and are tied to two new Trophies/Achievements.

As for the new event, it’s the Oskoreia Festival aka Odin’s Wild Hunt. From November 11th to December 2nd, players can partake in new quests and activities like horseback riding and battling spirits in a tournament. Various “spooky” rewards are promised. The requirements for participating are a little more strict – you’ll need to have completed either the Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire arcs along having a level 2 settlement.

If that weren’t enough, the title update adds new skills like Perfect Parry which deals additional damage to a foe when parrying at the right moment and Master Counter Roll which allows for executing a Hidden Blade attack while performing a Counter Roll. Check out some of the patch notes below and the full notes here. The update will be 25 GB on Xbox Series X/S, 20 GB on Xbox One, 6.75 GB on PS5, 4.55 GB on PS4 and 20.31 GB on PC.
