Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will receive a new update today at 5 AM PT/8 AM ET, which ranges from 5.5 GB on PS5 to 16 GB on Xbox Series X/S. Title update 1.2.1 will provide support for the upcoming Wrath of the Druids expansion (which must be downloaded separately at launch). However, there also three new skills to experiment with.

Cold Rage allows for ignoring hit interruptions after numerous regular melee attacks; Eye of the North ignores flinching when aiming with the bow; and Intense Rage will ignore hit interruptions when performing the next special attack or off-hand parry. Each skill effect requires a few seconds to recharge. Other new features include the ability to disable the cinematic camera during finishing moves and the addition of fish species like the halibut (small), sturgeon (small) and more.

You can also have the outfits for Altair and Bayek apply to other armor when using transmog. Check out the full patch notes here. As for Wrath of the Druids, it’s out on May 13th for all platforms and adds new quests and enemies (which seems to include werewolves).
