AC Valhalla’s Yule Festival Extended Following Widespread Issues
Due to widespread issues, Ubisoft will extend availability for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Yule Festival. AC Valhalla held a Yule Festival 2020 with seasonal content distributed across Eivor’s Ravensthorpe Settlement. This past spring, a similar event in-game was launched. Summer and fall received their seasonal celebrations.
Ubisoft has brought Yuletide back into the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for the holiday season 2021. All players were able to participate in the December 16 event, which introduced new game activities, rewards, and settlement decorations inspired by the Vikings’ historic celebrations of the winter solstice. Many of the new items focus on the snowy beard and the hair choices for Eivor. However, not everyone was able to participate in the Ravensthorpe-based celebrations. This is primarily due to players having difficulty accessing the Yule Festival. Fans can rest assured that the developers are aware of the problems.
Ubisoft announced plans for extending the event “to ensure everyone can enjoy the winter festivities after Ubisoft received reports of technical errors that prevented access to Assassin Creed Valhalla’s Yuletide contents. The original end date for the Yule Festival was January 6. The extension will extend the duration of the in-game Yule Festival. It is not known how long it will continue. A post on the official Assassin’s Creed Twitter page states that developers will release a patch to fix the problem on an unknown date in January. This tweet is about:
This is not the first time developers have extended an in-game festival’s duration. Ubisoft had to remove the Ostara Festival due to a crash glitch in AC Valhalla Ostara Festival and then re-upload the event for a more extended period.
On the heels of some big announcements regarding Assassin Creed Valhalla, the latest version of the Yule Festival was launched. The Crossover Stories content introduced Eivor to AC Odyssey hero Kassandra. Ubisoft also revealed Dawn of Ragnarok, a third-story expansion that will arrive in March 2022. The new paid DLC, which is 35+ hours long, will again place Eivor as Odin as he travels across the Dwarven kingdoms of Svartalfheim to find a way for Baldur to be saved.
