Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an Assassin’s Creed game, and therefore launched with a fair amount of bugs. Saves would vanish, NPCs would glitch out, and some people were even locked out of late-game questing opportunities. Ubisoft is looking to squash those under its heel with the 1.1.1 title update, though. On PC the update is a whopping 6.45 GB and it fixes a hell of a lot of stuff. Honestly, I’ve had a mostly good experience while playing on PC, but hey, it’s always a good thing for stuff to get better, right?
The title update went live for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla this morning at 7 AM ET so it’s, uh, already in effect. One of the most obviously apparent changes is that Ubisoft Connect achievements now have in-game support, so you’ll get a nice pop-up telling you that you accomplished an arbitrary thing now. As for the changes, your quiver and rations will now be refilled upon upgrading them, plus if your quiver or rations are currently full, arrow and ration pick-ups will no longer be highlighted in the world when you use your Batman detective mode. Another nice feature is that you can now “wake up” during the initial dream sequence arc without having to complete the first mission.
A bit of column A
Even daily quests are affected. In order to make things more efficient, if you can’t continue or restart a daily quest for whatever reason, the quest will automatically reset. If you use harpoon impalement a lot, the initial damage values have been tweaked for that. On top of those, there have been significant improvements to stability, plus a myriad of fixes for graphics, audio, cutscenes, quests, the world, and NPCs. With all of these improvements, people will hopefully have a notably better time with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Although I do wonder how many new bugs this update will introduce.
