Assassin's Creed Odyssey Update Adds Valhalla-Like Viking Armor

You can dress up Alexios or Kassandra up in Northern furs in case you want to get some Viking practice in before Assassin's Creed Valhalla.


Assassin's Creed Odyssey completed its extensive DLC roadmap last year, and since then it's been issuing occasional daily challenge updates or extra costumes. With the new Assassin's Creed Valhalla on the way, a small update has hit that lets you get into the Viking mood.

The title update 1.5.4 patch notes were posted to Reddit, and it is about 3-4 GB across all platforms. It has some bug fixes but also teases a new item pack in a seeming homage to Valhalla. The Northern Traveler's Set looks very much like Viking armor, complete with furs and an ornate axe. The patch does not mention exactly how or when to obtain them.

Now Playing: Assassin's Creed Valhalla Gameplay Overview | Ubisoft Forward 2020

Valhalla, of course, actually does take place during the Viking Age, as you manage your band of settlers and lay siege to Saxon fortresses. We recently got much more detail about Valhalla, including more information on the hero Eivor, the revised romance mechanics, going fishing, and how you can recruit Viking cats--or just regular cats that happen to hang out with Vikings, but "Viking cats" is so much cuter.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 17. It's also coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X, but release dates for those platforms have not been announced. For more details, check out our Valhalla pre-order guide.
