It was like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla might never end. Long after the seas had swallowed up the continents and the stars had gone out, Eivor would still find new colonies to plunder and new cosmetics to play with. But today Ubisoft announced the almost unthinkable: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has an end and it will happen in the next free DLC.

Called The last chapter, the update expected later this year will see Eivor sort out all of his issues and meet some new historical characters along the way. Ubisoft didn’t go into much more detail, but it looks like it’ll be something of a victory lap, and probably a little more low-key than some of Viking’s previous DLC adventures.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released in Fall 2020 alongside the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The third open-world RPG-era game in the series, it took players to 9th-century England through the eyes of Eivor, a Viking leading his people to a strange new land after fleeing trauma and tragedy back home. It’s the best Assassin’s Creed game in several years, borrowing pieces of The Witcher 3 and marry them with stealthy stabs in the shadows. The open world itself is rich in layers and one of my favorites.

But Ubisoft didn’t just leave it at that. Instead, as has been the case with all of its recent games, Valhalla have the full live post-launch processing. This included mini-DLC packs full of new crossover items and cosmetics, paid DLC story expansions that took players to Ireland and France, and even a brand new mode. inspired by roguelikes. Dawn of Ragnarokone of the most ambitious DLCs, even doubled down on the high fantasy side of the game.

But now the years of new seasonal content are coming to an end. And I, for my part, am relieved. Games that keep growing like Valhalla always made me feel overwhelmed. Usually I end up waiting for all the post-launch content to pass before I go back. It looks like this winter I’ll finally get my chance to return to the super deluxe full version of Valhalla and finish polishing every last icon on its gigantic map.
