According to its official Twitter account, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is expected to receive a major update on February 22. This is followed by the free weekend event and the Dawn of Ragnarok expansion, which is larger than AC Origins. .

Either way, this is sure to excite fans of the series who have been craving more story content.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is currently available for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
