The expansions keep coming for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and here we go with another one hitting us on March 10th. This one is not just some new areas and missions as we normally get. In fact, Ubisoft is offering us a way to play through these game mechanics as Odin now with the Dawn Of Ragnarök. That is the new expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla just in case you did not catch on as of yet. Something that will be hitting the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC for a small bit more to the game in cost. Not too bad for what it is going to offer up to us all, though.
As mentioned, in this new expansion, we will be taking on the role of Odin as he sets out on a new mission to save Baldur. He will have access to all of the usual Assassin’s Creed mechanics in the game as we head out to the different realms, but there will also be a few new ones mixed in. Odin is a god and will have some special bracers made for him after all and we will need to put them to some use. That use being able to absorb the powers of the giants out there for some buffs and debuffs. Now to mention the fact that Odin will be able to take the form of the Assassin’s Creed bird and use that to get around the game world. That will certainly change things up a bit more than before.
The more interesting part, as this is all based on having visions as we did in the core story of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, all of this will carry over to the core game. My guess is that it will be in some extra resistances and skills, but it is described that the powers of Odin will transfer too. That would make a huge deviation from the past with the Assassin’s Creed titles and I am not sure how I feel about that. Thankfully, we only have to wait a short bit to be able to give it all a go. I am interested to see how it goes and if this will be how they keep the IP rolling as they work on the next major installment.
