Ubisoft has released Title Update 1.3.2 for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and it brings quite a few notable changes. The biggest one, of course, is support being added in for the upcoming combat-free, exploration-focused Discovery Tour mode, which will go live for free on October 19. Meanwhile, the game’s Stadia version now also has the option for Performance and Image Quality modes.

Various bug fixes, balancing changes, and other touches of polish have also been applied. The patch’s size is 24.09 GB on Xbox Series X/S, and once again, the PS5 sees a significantly smaller download size at 8.54 GB.
