Ubisoft has dropped a new update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla ahead of the Dawn of Ragnarok expansion next month.

While the patch preps the game for the new content, there’s also plenty of other tweaks to the base game too. They include a new Saga Difficulty Mode, which reduces combat difficulty and stops them from scaling too. On top of that, the mode makes it harder to break stealth through actions like assassinating. This should help players who want to focus more on the game’s story.

Further difficulty tweaks are also included in the patch. Players can tweak things like the amount of damage Eivor takes, as well as their own damage output for example. There’s also an enemy health modifier and a chance to adjust how much rations will heal you. The update also adds support for Nintendo Switch and Stadia controllers on PC.

The majority of the rest of the patch is dedicated to fixes, including fixes for a rare random teleporting bug. You can check out the full patch notes, as always, on the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla official website. Title update 1.5.0 for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla should be live around now on all platforms including Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.

March 10 will see the arrival of the Dawn of Ragnarok DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. It’ll feature Eivor taking on the mantle of Odin and exploring the worlds of Nordic myth and legends. If you’re after something a little more traditional Assassin’s Creed, there might be a more stealth-focused standalone spinoff on the way, if recent rumours are to be believed.
