There have been a few things in the Assassin’s Creed pipeline for a little while and we were largely without answers on when players would get them. Late yesterday, Ubisoft put out a list of patch notes for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla update 1.3.0, which held the answers we were hoping for.

First on the docket is the Siege of Paris DLC. We noted yesterday that the Microsoft Store may have accidentally leaked the release date. That “leak” said it would come out on August 5th, but Ubisoft has officially announced the release date as August 12th, just a week later.

Just last week, Ubisoft said that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla would be getting level scaling in the next update. The announcement showed several level scaling options; Default, Off, Constant, Harder, and Nightmarish. At the time, there were no details of how each option would affect the game.

With Off “enemies appear exactly as prescribed in the region description“, Default means “lower enemies are brought up to 30 power levels under the player’s level“, Constant means “enemies will be at least the same power level of the player“, Harder means “enemies will be 20+ power levels above the player“, and Nightmarish means “enemies will be 50+ power levels above the player.”

This update will also activate the Sigrblot Festival, which will be held in the player’s settlement. Similar to the Yule season and Ostra season events. During this celebration, Eivor can obtain one-handed swords, which has been requested by fans for a while now.

This update will go live on July 27th. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia.
