The new Discovery Tour mode of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will launch October 19, 2021, in the form of a free update and will be titled Discovery Tour: Viking Age. The mode will allow players to freely explore the game map without fighting or facing other missions, discovering notions about Norse history and mythology.
Ubisoft is continuing to support Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: the new mode will follow in the footsteps of the previous Origins and Odyssey and will ensure that players are free to explore the game map without worrying about fights or missions.
As per tradition, a narrator will illustrate the most important places, providing historical information. Designed with input from historians and archaeologists, Viking Age “will transform the world of the game into a non-violent educational experience that players can freely explore to learn more about the places, people and cultures of the 9th century in England and of Norway, ” according to Ubisoft.
However, instead of embarking on guided tours as in previous Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt discovery tours, Viking Age will see players take on the roles of different characters and follow their stories by completing various missions. On their journey, players will interact with discovery sites with images of items from museum collections, including the UK’s Trust Cultural Cultural Hampshire, Preston Park Museum & Grounds, York’s Archaeological Trust, Réunion des Musées France and the National Museum of Denmark.
The latest Assassin’s Creed Valhalla title update, 1.31, was released on September 7 and added new content to the River Raids mode, including three rivers (Erriff, Berbha, and Reno), rewards, and abilities. The update also introduced a new difficulty level that doubles the amount of damage from players and reduces rations’ effectiveness by 40%.
We remind you that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and Google Stadia.
