Another week, another Assassin’s Creed Valhalla patch, this time update 1.10. Ubisoft has been hard at work fixing the game up since its launch around a month ago. This one is a little more forward looking though, as it not only works out key performance and stability problems, but also prepares Valhalla for upcoming content.
The Yule Festival is an upcoming limited time event in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, delivering a festive treat for all players. Throughout the event, there will be a set of rewards to earn, along with several festivities to enjoy. You’ll start to see the beginnings of the event take place in your settlement, as patch 1.10 prepares Valhalla for the holiday season.
The update also serves as set up for a bigger content drop. The Settlement Expansion is a free upcoming add-on that’s part of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s seasonal roadmap. This first mini add-on will bring some new settlement expansion options for players looking to further establish their Viking home.
The nitty gritty
Beyond these preparations for upcoming events, patch 1.10 contains your usual host of changes and improvements. There are some PC specific fixes in here too, which could be of use if you’ve experienced bugs playing Valhalla. Ubisoft has addressed some freezing instances when players perform certain actions for the very first time. A crashing instance during the splash screen bootup has also been looked at for PC players.
There are a couple of system level fixes on PC too. The benchmark tool was not collecting data after unpausing the game in some instances, which the developer has addressed. Finally, an issue where VRAM indicators didn’t match up with actual VRAM consumption has been fixed in the patch.
The patch notes also list a ton of global fixes, that apply to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla regardless of platform. These address everything from quest and combat glitches to graphics problems and UI bugs. Patch 1.10 is now live for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
