Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla latest update fixes a lot of bugs and sets the stage for the Yule festival

Although Valhalla has turned out to be a visual spectacle, the abundance of bugs made gameplay quite tedious. The 1.10 update aimed at fixing issues that prevented players from completing quests. For instance, the update has fixed issues with NPCs not moving where they have to. Furthermore, the update has made it so that the NPC power is at a maximum difference of 51 below the player.

The latest update has also ensured that the boss opponent automatically matches the player’s level if the player is at a higher level than the boss. This will be applicable irrespective of the difficulty level the player chooses. The update has made some UI improvements and performance fixes for PC as well.

Another highlight of this patch update is that it has added support for an upcoming settlement expansion as well as the Yule Season festival. Yule is the winter festival of the Northmen, and although we are not sure what this event will entail, we are pretty excited about it!
