Vikings, the time has come. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Dawn of Ragnarök expansion is available now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, ushering in over 35 hours of content steeped in Norse mythology and in-game lore. Eivor once again delves into the memories of Odin (also called Havi) as they search for their missing son Baldr in Svartalfheim, the dwarven realm. Svartalfheim has been invaded by the fire giant Surtr who leads an army of the Muspel fire giants and Jotun frost giants. Surtr has taken Baldr and has a vendetta against Odin. As Odin races to find their son, they are also faced with the looming threat of Ragnarök. Players will need to use all of the abilities at their disposal – plus a few new tricks – to infiltrate Svartalfheim, rescue Baldr, and face an even more powerful force: fate itself.
The expansion adds a range of new gameplay mechanics, most notably the Hugr-Rip. Gifted to Odin by a dwarven ally, the bracer enables players to harness the power of certain enemies. Odin will be able to turn into a raven, disguise themselves as a Muspel or Jotun, imbue their weapons with ice powers, or raise recently slain enemies to fight on their behalf. The Hugr-Rip and associated powers do not carry over to the base game, but plenty of other things will. Eivor can access any weapons, armor, skill points, and Abilities found in Svartalfheim.
Dawn of Ragnarök also introduces the Arena, where Odin can fight waves of enemies, gladiator style, to entertain – and earn rewards from – a Valkyrie named Kára. As an added twist, they can add modifiers, called Boasts, to make the battle even tougher – but the bigger the risk, the better the reward.
The largest expansion in the Assassin’s Creed franchise to date, Dawn of Ragnarök is available for purchase for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. Players must own Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and should have a skill level of at least 340 for the best Dawn of Ragnarök experience. And if you’re a new player who hasn’t yet reached that threshold, the game will give you a boost, ensuring all players can go toe-to-toe (or Hidden Blade-to-back) with Muspelheim’s most fiery giants.
