A new patch for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is now available. But unlike previous updates, you’ll have to redownload the entire game to take advantage of the new content and features. This is due to a data restructuring that promises faster loading screen times, better runtime performance, and improved world data streaming.

Crossover Stories

Title Update 1.4.1 delivers crossover stories where you can unlock Assassin’s Creed Odyssey- themed rewards by completing the story mission: A Fated Encounter.

For you to gain access to the said story content, you must first reach Settlement Level 4 and you should have the quest, A Wise Friend, already completed. For those who do not know, this is the quest where you help Valka establish herself in Ravensthorpe.

Those playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will also gain access to new story content, which will be available after downloading the game’s latest update.
