Assassin’s Creed Valhalla just got a good dose of new content with Title Update 1.2.0, now available on all platforms. It’s also pretty big, up to 17 GB, but not as much as Modern Warfare. The update adds a time-limited event called Ostara Festival, new features, skills, and options, accompanied by a plethora of bug fixes.

While the new event is included, the Ostara Festival will go live on March 18 and will last until April 8. Ravensthorpe and its bloomy makeover are a part of the event. New side activities and rewards will be available as well. Three new skills, namely, Fearless Leaper, Raven’s Loot, and Loot Food are featured in this update. For the camera, the update finally added the Close Camera option that allows the camera to stay close in normal gameplay and zoom out during combat. You can toggle it in the Gameplay menu. Check out some of the details below:


  • Xbox Series X|S: 17.97 GB
  • Xbox One: 12.81 GB
  • PlayStation 5: 12.28 GB
