But it’s nothing special…
Fans of the 2020 video game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will sadly say goodbye to it today. Kind of. Ubisoft revealed yesterday that the final patch for the game would be released across all platforms on February 21.
Yet, besides a few bug patches and quality-of-life enhancements, the update offers no real benefits. For Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which had one of the longest and most complex development cycles of any game in the franchise’s history, it’s just a simple nod of goodbye and a disappearance into the night.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is probably complete, at least among those that played it. The game received a turbulent reception because of its wonderful, RPG-based gameplay and deep, mystical roots, which many people ignored. Thankfully for those players, Ubisoft plans to release AC Mirage in 2023 and bring back the classic gameplay from the past.
Whether you played it or not, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has ended. Watch as the enormous eating table, which represents their afterlife or something, receives our Viking brothers.
We will be releasing a final bug fix update for Assassin's Creed Valhalla tomorrow: February 21.— Assassin's Creed (@assassinscreed) February 20, 2023

The final update arrives today with a few bug patches for the Xbox, PlayStation, and PC platforms. The PS5 is so small that it is only 500 MB in size. However, the game’s conclusion could be higher, especially because fans feel cheated out of a New Game+ feature. The Final Chapter, the last DLC, could have been more entertaining and conducive to the plot.
Yet it’s not the end of the world. While Ubisoft has recently shelved many projects, Assassin’s Creed has a very busy schedule ahead of it.
Various Assassin’s Creed content will be released in the upcoming months (and beyond), including a live-action version, a new mobile game (recently leaked), AC Mirage, and AC Hexe, a grim, bloody, and brutal adventure.
The story does not conclude in Valhalla.
