A new season of free content has arrived in Assassin's Creed® Valhalla! The Ostara Festival springs to life in Ravensthorpe on March 18, blooming with activities and new rewards. We're also introducing a much-anticipated feature that allows Eivor to change gear appearance, along with a special community gift!
After a long harsh winter, the return of spring is cause for celebration in Ravensthorpe with the Ostara Festival, a time-limited event held from March 18 to April 8! Experience a wholesome time hunting eggs, or share in the festivities with archery, drinking, and brawling. When night falls, protect the Raven Clan from spirits who run wild through the forest, sowing chaos. Earn special rewards for completing activities for both day and night time in-game, available only during the Festival. The long winter is over, so put some flowers in your hair, grab a drink, and celebrate before the Festival comes to a close!
Important note: The event will be accessible only after having completed one story arc (Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire).
As a huge thank you to our entire community for playing, discussing, and helping us to improve Assassin's Creed Valhalla, we have a special gift for you — the Godly Reward! Create new memories that hearken back to the original Assassin's Creed with Altair's Outfit for Eivor. The Yule Gear Set and cosmetics are also yours as a courtesy along with 300 opals. Head to the Animus Store to claim your free gift!
CHANGE APPEARANCE AKA TRANSMOG
Unleash your inner Viking in style! Introducing a heavily requested feature that allows you to change the appearance of Eivor's gear with visual customization, better known as transmogrification or transmog. Once you've found a piece of gear or a weapon, its visuals are added to your collection of appearances that you can modify in exchange for 50 silver by visiting your local Blacksmith in Ravensthorpe, so long as the item is from the same category. While someone may be able to wear an axe as a hat, that person is not you. The original gear and armor stats remain unchanged as you customize Eivor, allowing you to stick to your build while looking your best.
Show us your favorite transmog gear combinations using #ACFinest.
Three new skills have been added to aid Eivor in the fight to conquer England. The Fearless Leaper skill thrusts Eivor upwards before landing a mastered falling attack atop enemies. Equip the new Raven's Loot and Loot Food skills to increase Eivor's efficiency when at range or on the prowl, giving you more time to stay on the move.
Our first expansion, Wrath of the Druids, will be available this spring on April 29. Explore and smuggle your way through the haunted beauty of Ireland as you gain the favor of Gaelic kings and confront the druidic cult, the Children of Danu. This expansion will be available as a standalone purchase or as part of the Season Pass. Visit our Post Launch Roadmap to delve further.
More free content is on its way so stay tuned! In the meantime, enjoy the gifts and additions to Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and keep an eye on our dedicated news and updates site for more information.
