Ubisoft details a major update for Assassin's Creed Valhalla due out next Tuesday.

Update 1.5.0 is 9 to 16 GB in size , depending on the platform,  and contains a host of bug fixes, including a bug that made it impossible to complete the A Brewing Storm quest. Stealth gameplay improvements have also been made; Among other things, enemies stay on their guard longer when Eivor ducks, and they respond better to his whistle.

New is the Saga difficulty setting, where players don’t have to worry about combat and stealth. Enemies deal less damage in this mode and give you more time to perform stealth moves if Eivor is seen.

The update also gives players more control over battle settings. You can now adjust how much damage Eivor takes, how much he inflicts himself, how quickly he heals, how quickly his adrenaline refills and how much life the enemies have.

Finally, update 1.5.0 adds more controller support to the PC version (Nintendo Switch Pro and Stadia), and prepares the game for the arrival of the Dawn of Ragnarök expansion. In that DLC, which according to Ubisoft contains about 35 hours of content, players take on the role of Odin as he goes in search of the dwarf world Svartalfheim.

These are the download sizes of update 1.5.0 for all platforms:

  • Xbox Series X/S: ~12.27 GB
  • Xbox One: ~9,84GB
  • PlayStation 5: ~3,60GB
  • PlayStation 4: ~7.,94GB
  • PC: ~15,09GB

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök is out March 10 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
