Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Is Finally Getting a Viking Age Tour This October

The update that will enable all Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players to discover the origins of Vikings finally has a date. The developers, yesterday (September 14, 2021), announced that the game will offer the new in-depth Viking expansion for free, for all owners.

The update launches on October 19, 2021, on all platforms. The devs also revealed that the expansion will have its own standalone version; available at the time of launch for PC. However, console players will have to wait till early 2022 if they wish to purchase the standalone copy.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: what will the Discovery Tour offer?

The tour promises to discover and interact with the Viking culture and the history that comes with it. It will take players back in time to ninth-century England and Norway where they can experience and explore the times for themselves.

The Viking Discovery Tour will be a major update and Ubisoft wants to make sure it delivers only the best. Since the announcement was well received by the community on Twitter, the developers took advantage of it. Rather than making fans wait longer for a preview, they decided to release the first look of the Discovery Tour: Viking Age.

Here’s a first-look at the experience that Discovery Tour: Viking Age has to offer.

It looks like the developers noticed the lack of excitement about guided tours and deiced to change them entirely. According to a post, “For the newest opus in the series, the development team in Ubisoft Montreal has changed the formula to make the journey even more fun and informative by putting the narrative and storytelling at the heart of the experience,”.

To improve the way Discovery Tours worked, Ubisoft will add a new feature. This new feature will allow players to live the lives of various characters and take on quests.

This will be the second major update in consecutive months with the latest title update 1.3.1 releasing on September 7th, 2021. Just like 1.3.1, massive changes are expected to come out with the Viking Age tour.

If you already own a unit of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you’re all set. And if you are someone who just got enticed by the new Viking Tour, you’ll be looking to spend £16.99 (around $23), and the game is definitely worth it.
