The Assassin's Creed Valhalla Mastery Challenge Update has been revealed as a new way to test your skills in stealth, combat, and more — and it's arriving in just a few short days.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla has already had a bit of post-launch content added to the game such as a holiday event late last year. Unfortunately, not everything was able to stick to Ubisoft's planned schedule; the Wrath of the Druids DLC was delayed by a couple of weeks. Now, we have a new piece of free post-launch content on the way: get ready to test your skills in the Mastery Challenge!
What's New in the Assassin's Creed Valhalla Mastery Challenge Update?
The Assassin's Creed Valhalla Mastery Challenge update kicks off when a meteorite falls from the sky. Head to the crash site and you'll discover a strange woman named Hildiran who will join your settlement. She will teach you about the art of "Battle Meditation," an art that will ultimately lead you to secret treasure.
Five new shrines will appear on the map. Each of these shrines will give you three different challenges:
- Trial of the Bear – Test your melee skills by fighting enemies while attempting to complete bonus objectives.
- Trial of the Wolf – Hone your archery by shooting enemies at range with an emphasis on tactics such as headshots.
- Trial of the Raven – Stealthily evade and eliminate a number of enemies.
Each of these trials will give you a score and a medal, but they won't be easy — you'll be given a predetermined set of equipment and abilities for each challenge. Each medal you earn will give you "energies," a new currency that can be redeemed at Hildiran's Wares in the settlement to purchase new weapons, decorations, and tattoos.
When is the Assassin's Creed Valhalla Mastery Challenge Update Release Date?
The Assassin's Creed Valhalla Mastery Challenge Update release date is June 15, 2021 — that's next Tuesday!
You'll be able to test your skills in these new challenges in just a few short days. For now, you can tune in to Ubisoft Forward tomorrow, June 12, 2021, at 3:00 PM Eastern time on ubisoft.com/forward to learn about more upcoming content for the game. You can buy Assassin's Creed Valhalla for PC and consoles starting at $59.99 or your regional equivalent.
