Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will require a full re-download with next week’s title update
Ahead of the 1.4.1 title update, Ubisoft warned that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will need a full reinstall once the patch goes live next week. This means you should be prepared for a download of around 77GB on PC, although apparently the total is slightly less than the current game’s pre-update size, excluding DLC, due to some optimization .
And these optimizations are not negligible. In addition to preparing for future DLCs and expansions, the 1.4.1 update “will also deliver faster loading screens, better global data delivery, and overall runtime performance,” a Ubisoft community manager said. . noted.
“Data restructuring”, as Ubisoft puts it, means that an update that would have otherwise added about 34GB to the total file size actually reduced it by about a gigabyte, which is fine, but if you’re still logging into Valhalla every day, you’ve probably got a wait ahead of you.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released a year ago but apparently has some big additions on the way. A character from a previous Assassin’s Creed game will appear in an upcoming questline, according to YouTuber’s data mining J0nathan.
Meanwhile, if the base game’s 100+ hours of content wasn’t enough, another leaker claimed that a “massive DLC expansion” will arrive in March. It would be “God of War style”, which could possibly mean a more focused campaign.
It’s not confirmed, but what is confirmed is that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is getting new content. Which should come as no surprise as Ubisoft prepares to turn the series into a live game.
