Ubisoft is set to add the second big update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla later today (December 15) which will add support for the Yule Festival, which is the game’s first big seasonal update. It’ll also fix a ton of bugs and glitches. The update will be around 2.5 GB on the PlayStation 5, and 2.4 GB on the PlayStation 4.
Below is a full list of the patch notes.
- Legendary animal trophies will now appear in your settlement’s longhouse.
- Tweaked the NPC power level behavior. NPCs power will now be at a maximum difference of 51 below the player. NPCs that are 51 power below the player will be highlighted in green. World bosses will match the player’s power level when the power exceeds the world bosses’ base level. (also applies to Alpha animals, Zealots). This change applies to all difficulties. Addressed an issue where the Crit. Spark rune would not work when slotted into bows. Addressed an issue where wrong weapon stats were displayed for specific items: Royal Guard, Viper Bow, Death-Speaker, The Mark of Sol, Doppelhander, and Hundtoth.
Graphics, Audio, and Animation
- Addressed various graphics issues. Addressed various character or NPC animation issues. Addressed various clipping issues. Addressed an issue where fish may lay on its side during the fishing animation. Addressed an issue where some NPCs would cut the air instead of wheat. Practice doesn’t always make perfect. Addressed an issue where NPCs that are being assassinated while being unconscious would sometimes get up during the animation. Tattooed Mimir’s head. Addressed an issue with jagged sea foam.
Abilities, Perks, and Skills
- Addressed an issue where players couldn’t perform heavy attacks with Frostruin or Sinner Skull. Addressed an issue where Frostruin’s perk wouldn’t activate even when conditions are met. Addressed instances where players were able to open barred doors with the Dive of the Valkyries ability. Addressed an issue where the Level 2 Incendiary Power Trap couldn’t be detonated a second time when the first trap was set off by an NPC. Addressed an issue where Man’s Best Friend wouldn’t deal any damage to Zealots in some instances. Good boi. Largely increased Mastery Points cap.
Again, this patch will be added to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on the PlayStation 4, 5, Xbox One, Series X/S, and PC later today. Also, it’s worth noting that, while there aren’t any official details regarding Yule Festival, Ubisoft has said that they’ll provide details about the upcoming seasonal content soon.
