Ubisoft’s Viking action-adventure RPG Assassin’s Creed Valhalla becomes the franchise’s most successful title to date, surpassing $1 billion in revenue.
AssassinCreed Valhalla smashed its way through a major milestone for Ubisoft’s action-adventure stealth franchise.
Ubisoft’s latest dive into the age-old conflict between Assassins and Templars continues to bring in record numbers nearly two years after its initial release. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot recently announced Valhalla reached over $1 billion in revenue, becoming the series’ most financially successful entry in nearly 15 years.
ValhallaUbisoft’s enduring success continues to receive support from Ubisoft and has received a mix of additional free and paid content throughout 2021. The France-based developer also plans to keep the momentum going into the new year, as the next Dawn of Ragnarok DLC would add nearly 40 hours of exciting new content themed around the cataclysmic end times of Norse mythology.
The expansion will allow players to don the mantle of Allfather Odin as they journey through the realm of Svartálfaheimr in search of their son Baldr, who has fallen into the hands of the Eternal Fire Giant Surtr. Odin’s status as a deity won’t just be for show either, as they will have access to an array of magical abilities that will open up new playstyles for the creative assassin. These include spells that allow them to teleport, freeze enemies, and raise defeated enemies into personal minions. Additionally, the kingdom of Svartálfaheimr’s reputation as the home of dwarven blacksmiths likely means that adventurous players will find plenty of mythical gear to satisfy their treasure-hunting cravings.
While ValhallaThe next expansion of provides the evolution of the series, its previous free DLC Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories gave players a glimpse of its predecessor Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The DLC brought together protagonists Eivor and Kassandra in a two-part quest series split between their respective games. The first quest takes place in Odyssey and follows Kassandra after gaining immortality by the Staff of Hermes. Perpetually maintained in her biological peak by the artifact, Kassandra eventually encounters Eivor in the second DLC quest, set over a thousand years later in Valhalla.
