Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: the long-awaited feature will never happen

Everyone was waiting for it and it will never arrive. Ever since Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launched in November 2020, fans have been clamoring for a much-loved action-RPG feature: New Game Plus. The cleaver has just fallen, however, it will not happen in the end.

No New Game+ in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is preparing to bow out. After two years of follow-up and the biggest post-launch content for a game of the license, the last episode of the series will soon welcome its last DLC. This final chapter will arrive on December 6, 2022, after which Ubisoft will stop fleshing out the universe. If it will therefore bring a new conclusion to the epic of Eivor, some fans hoped that it would also mark the arrival of a long-awaited and particularly requested free feature. There will ultimately be no New Game+ in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. A decision that Ubisoft explains as follows in his press release :

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was built as a specific experience, very different in its structure from previous titles by offering new ways to approach the universe and its characters. When we studied the possibility of implementing a New Game+ mode, we realized that the depth of the game limited the possibilities of providing unique and rewarding replayability. We understand the disappointment that this news may cause, but hope that the new content of the last few months, especially new experiences such as the Forgotten Saga, have provided exciting challenges for lovers of replayable content. While we won’t be adding a New Game+ mode to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, we have other content in the works before we bring the final point.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla the final chapter

To compensate, Ubisoft will authorize the permanent wearing of the hood, even when the character is not wearing his cape. Another requested feature, which will arrive with the latest Assassin’s Creed Valhalla update next December. The publisher also promises a few more surprises with this updatewhich he prefers to keep warm for a little longer, but the New Party + will not be one of them.
