Forgotten Saga DLC For Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Gets Some Fresh Gameplay Footage From Ubisoft

Whether you enjoy Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft has done a fantastic job of sustaining it over the past two years.

Said support is now beginning to unwind, but the upcoming addition to the game’s content is free if you have already purchased the main title and sounds extremely remarkable in breadth.

The gameplay of this new adventure, dubbed “The Forgotten Saga,” essentially transforms Valhalla into a mysticism roguelike. A new video from Ubisoft that explains the mechanics and features of this DLC has been released. So if you need a reason to visit again, this is worth a look.

Much hasn’t been mentioned lately about Valhalla’s plans for 2022, even though recent Ubisoft news has been focused on cancellations and delays, with a few Assassin’s Creed Red, Infinity, and Rift rumors and reports thrown in for good measure. That might soon change.

The Forgotten Saga DLC is expected to be released soon, even though Ubisoft hasn’t officially said when. This is because summer is ending, and the company has just published a new gameplay trailer for the game mode.

In it, players take on the role of Odin and journey into Niflheim to confront Hel to escape an “ill-timed fate.” This new gameplay video provides a few glances into how the mode functions but focuses on five key points that fans will be interested in.

Particularly if they don’t frequently engage in roguelike gaming, players must finish many runs spread out over the four Niflheim zones to beat the game mode in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

There are several Metroidvania-inspired elements, such as shortcuts that can be unlocked to make each run simpler and a tonne of hidden items to find.

A permanent ability bonus that players can find that lasts from run to run is particularly mentioned in the movie as being concealed in some places.
