The Assassin's Creed Valhalla 1.1.0 Update has arrived. This patch features the debut of the "Yule Festival" event, a good bit of balancing, and several bug fixes just in time for the holidays.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla has been out for a bit now and players have been having fun terrorizing the land as a band of rowdy Vikings. There hasn't been much in the way of substantial post-launch content added just yet, and now a big content drop is coming just in time for you to enjoy it over winter break.

What's New in the Assassin's Creed Valhalla 1.1.0 Update?

The big-ticket addition in the Assassin's Creed Valhalla 1.1.0 Update is the "Yule Festival," a time-limited event with several special festivities for players to enjoy (and the rewards to go with them). Details on this new event and Settlement expansion will be arriving in a future preview article from Ubisoft.

The Yule Festival isn't the only neat addition for the holidays — players can score the Seafarer Settlement Pack and the legendary Baytek Outfit for Eivor on all platforms from December 14–18, 2020, as part of Ubisoft's Happy Holidays promotion.

Naturally, this patch also brings some balance changes and bug fixes. One of the biggest changes in this respect is an adjustment to NPC power level; for example, NPCs will max out at 51 levels below the player should you be stronger than them. World Bosses will also match the player's power level should you manage to exceed their natural level.

As always, these are just some of the highlights; you can read about all of the details for this patch in the Assassin's Creed Valhalla 1.1.0 Update patch notes.

When is the Assassin's Creed Valhalla 1.1.0 Update Release Date?

The Assassin's Creed Valhalla 1.1.0 Update release date is December 15, 2020 — that's tomorrow! Players should expect a patch ranging from 2.4GB–6.3GB in size depending on their platform; the patch will launch at 7:00 AM EST for all platforms.

For now, you can buy Assassin's Creed Valhalla via its official website starting at $59.99 or your regional equivalent, although it might not be a bad idea to wait a bit — odds are, you may be able to snag a discount during one of the many upcoming holiday sales at major retailers.
