Ubisoft Sets Up Next Assassin's Creed With Free DLC Mission in Valhalla

1 year 4 months ago

Ubisoft has released some surprise DLC for Assassin's Creed Valhalla that features a character from the next game, Assassin's Creed Mirage.

As reported by Polygon, Ubisoft announced on Twitter (below) that a new quest called Shared History can now be downloaded for free, introducing Roshan from the upcoming Mirage to Valhalla protagonist Eivor.

Roshan is the mentor of Basim, another character from Valhalla and protagonist of the next game. Given his status as a master assassin, it's only natural that Roshan is too, and her quest kicks off with some foreshadowing of what's to come in Mirage.

This DLC (alongside the previously announced Last Chapter) marks the end of Valhalla's post launch content and arrives more than two years after the game launched in November 2020. Already confirmed to tie up the story of Eivor, it makes sense that Ubisoft also wants to tease the next game in its final piece of DLC for the Viking adventure.

Mirage leaked earlier this year but was officially revealed in September as the next mainline Assassin's Creed game launching sometime in 2023. Set in Baghdad around 20 years before the events of Valhalla, Mirage promises a tonal return to the franchise's roots.
