Assassin's Creed Valhalla Mods Are Letting Players Avoid Paying For DLC Items
Follow in their footsteps at your own risk.
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla players have found a way to skirt the system in Ubisoft's latest open-world adventure. Using a script editor, they've managed to add any cosmetic item they want to their inventory, including those you'd normally have to pay real-world money for. They've even managed to unlock as-of-yet unreleased premium items.
A user detailed how to pull the digital heist off over on Nexus Mods, as originally reported by Eurogamer. The method has players use memory scanning software to access cosmetics like the Berserker, Valkyrie, Draugr, and Huldufolk packs on PC.
Premium packs are normally purchased with an in-game currency called Helix Credits. Players will need to spend at least $20 to get enough credit to unlock one of Valhalla's premium cosmetic packs. Some players have used this unofficial method to get around that cost.
Be wary if you decide to take this route, though. Downloading tools like this one can cause unintended harm to your game and Ubisoft could punish those who use the software with Valhalla. You also potentially open up your PC to hackers.
For those looking to spend more money on Ubisoft's viking simulator, Assassin's Creed Valhalla's dice game, Orlog, is becoming a real-world dice game as well. Ubisoft announced that a physical version of the game would come sometime in 2021.
