Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is getting its final DLC – The Last Chapter – on December 6, but sadly it won’t be getting the “much requested” New Game+ feature.
Ubisoft shared the news in a blog, revealing that The Last Chapter will wrap up “two amazing years of launch support.” The final chapter comes alongside Title Update 1.6.2, and it will serve as a “moving and intimate conclusion to Eivor’s saga” and will “connect some of the storylines developed in the game and provide a conclusion to your time with the Raven Clan.”
Those who want to see the end of Eivor’s story need to complete a few things, and the full list is as follows;
- Complete the main storyline by making commitments to all territories of England
- Complete the mythical storylines of Asgard and Jotunheim
- Upgrade your settlement to level 5 and build the Jomsviking Barracks
- Kill all targets of the Order of the Ancients and reveal its leader
Ubisoft has also confirmed that it will no longer hold limited-time festival events in Ravensthorpe. However, all rewards from previous Festivals will be available from Merchants after completing The First Night of Samhain quest. There will also be brand new rewards like ‘thank you for your continued support’.
As for New Game+, which Ubisoft acknowledged was a “highly requested feature”, it will not be added to the game.
“Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was built as a unique Assassin’s Creed experience, one that is very different in structure from its predecessors and offers new ways to interact with the world and its characters,” wrote Ubisoft. “When we researched the implementation of New Game+, we realized that the depth of the game gave us limited opportunities to make the replayability unique and rewarding.”

While New Game+ isn’t coming, there will be a few new additions before Ubisoft shifts its Assassin’s Creed focus to future titles, including an option to keep your hood up at any time. There will also be a few more surprises, but Ubisoft is saving those for its “final goodbye”.
As the sun sets on Valhalla, another sun rises for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a new platform and hub for future Assassin’s Creed games. Ubisoft has revealed that the first two games to be part of Infinity will be one that follows the life of a Shinobi in feudal Japan and another featuring Watch Dogs: Legion director Clint Hocking who appears to have something to do with witchcraft.
