Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Will Receive “Longer and Stronger” Post-Launch Support Than Odyssey – Ubisoft

Ubisoft plans on supporting the open world RPG for many months ahead.

As multiple developers and publishers have proven over the years, single player experiences and prolonged and strong post-launch support aren’t mutually exclusive things. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was a perfect example of that, with the game continuing to receive free quests, a Discovery Mode tour, countless updates, and, of course, two major expansions, over the course of more than a year following its release.

Ubisoft had already outlined their post-launch plans for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla before the open world action RPG launched last year, and it was clear that they have similar plans for it as they did for Odyssey. Speaking recently during Ubisoft’s quarterly earnings call though, chief financial officer Frederick Duguet said that their plans for Valhalla’s post-launch support are even bigger.

After re-iterating that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was the biggest launch in the series’ history (though he did say that that was in terms of “value”, with Assassin’s Creed 3 still having sold more units at launch), Duguet said that Ubisoft is planning “longer and stronger” post-launch support for the game in order to maintain its momentum. Duguet also said that Valhalla was the second-highest selling of all the games that launched on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S last Holiday- one would assume Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was the highest.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has two paid expansions planned. Wrath of the Druids launches this Spring, with The Siege of Paris following not long afterward in the Summer. The Discovery Tour Mode will also be coming soon, while Valhalla is also going to receive regular seasonal updates to add new content and gameplay features.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is currently available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
