Ahead of the 1.4.1 title update, Ubisoft warned that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will need a full reinstall once the patch goes live next week. That means you should prepare for a download of about 77GB on the PC, although apparently the total will be slightly less than the size before the current game update, excluding the DLC, due to some optimizations.
And those optimizations are not insignificant. In addition to preparing for future expansions and DLC, the 1.4.1 update will also “deliver faster loading screens, improved global data transmission, and overall runtime performance,” said a Ubisoft community manager. saying.
The ‘data restructuring’, as Ubisoft puts it, means that an update that would otherwise have added around 34GB to the total file size has actually reduced it by about a gigabyte, which is good, though if it’s still logging into Valhalla every day you will probably have to wait ahead.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released a year ago, but it apparently has some great additions on the way. A character from a previous Assassin’s Creed game will appear in an upcoming quest line, according to YouTuber datamining. J0nathan.
In the meantime, if the 100+ hours of base game content weren’t enough, another leak has claimed that a “massive DLC expansion” is coming in March. It’s reportedly “God of War-style,” which could possibly mean a more focused campaign.
That is not confirmed, but what is confirmed is that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is receiving new content. Which shouldn’t be a surprise as Ubisoft prepares to turn the series into a live service game.
