Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has received its patch notes for Title Update 1.60 which adds a brand-new game mode – The Forgotten Saga. Eivor ventures into Niflheim’s depths to take on difficult foes in the new rogue-lite mode, which is free for all players.

Upon visiting Asgard for the first time in the main story, you can construct a new building in Ravensthorpe to access the Forgotten Saga mode. Your equipment and perks don’t transfer over, and it has no Power level requirements. Simply jump in, survive against all odds and attempt to defy fate.
