Assassin's Creed Valhalla concludes Tombs of the Fallen with free update

Sean Carey - September 26th 2022

A new title update for Assassin's Creed Valhalla is set to add even more free content to the action-RPG, including a new Tombs of the Fallen pack and another settlement building.

Update:
We can now confirm that title update 1.6.1 adds one new achievement to Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

Original story:
Title update 1.6.1 rolls out to all Assassin's Creed Valhalla owners on September 27th, and includes a bunch of new content on top of the usual bug fixes. At this time, it's unknown if there will be any new Assassin's Creed Valhalla achievements added with the update.


Update 1.6.1 brings with it a new settlement building to Ravensthorpe: the Rune Forge. This building can be built once Ravensthorpe has been upgraded to Level 4. With the Rune Forge, you can turn the perks of your current gear into new runes, which can then be exchanged for silver.

Another highlight of the update is Tombs of the Fallen Pack 2, which sees the Tombs of the Fallen story "come to an epic conclusion." The new pack adds three more tombs to explore that are rigged with ancient traps and a variety of complex puzzles to overcome. "Only the most dedicated adventurers will discover buried secrets from a fallen civilization," Ubisoft says. "Observe and explore deep waters, molten lava, and Isu teachings to solve ancient puzzles and acquire lost treasures." At the moment, it's unknown if Ubisoft will be adding any new achievements related to Tombs of the Fallen Pack 2. The previous Tombs of the Fallen title update added two new achievements, so it's possible that we all might be returning to Valhalla for some additional Gamerscore.

Also, from October 20th to November 10th, the time-limited Oskoreia Festival returns to Valhalla where you will take on the Wild Hunt by defending Ravenshthorpe from evil spirits.
