Assassin's Creed Valhalla title updates not "up to our standards," says Ubisoft

By Sean Carey,
Ubisoft has announced changes in how it handles title updates for Assassin's Creed Valhalla after admitting that previous updates haven't met its own standards.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla title updates not up to our standards, says Ubisoft.

In a new developer blog, Ubisoft said, "Our community is at the heart of everything we do, and we always strive to provide you with great experiences. That said, we recognise that some of our recent title updates may not have met your expectations or been up to our standards."

Past title updates have all included new content, and while most have been received well by players, some have been heavily criticised. Title update 1.2.0 added transmog to the game, which lets you change the look of armour without giving up its stats. However, it costs 50 silver, something players weren't too happy with and was a lot more awkward to use when compared to Assassin's Creed Odyssey's version of the feature. Other title updates have also been lambasted for introducing bugs and glitches to Valhalla.

Ubisoft says it's now "made several changes to production pipelines and tools" so it can "deliver more robust updates." The team will also now release title updates every five weeks instead of every month to "allow for more thorough testing and refinement."

Assassin's Creed Valhalla title update roadmap

Assassin's Creed Valhalla's next title update rolls out to players tomorrow (April 27th), bringing with it a partial solution for England's missing fish. Hopefully, the update should make the Good Catch trophy slightly easier to unlock. Ubisoft says that the full fix for this issue is expected to come in June. The next title update after tomorrow's will be released in late spring alongside a free game mode called Mastery Challenge.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla's Wrath of the Druids expansion has been delayed to mid-May, so Ubisoft can deliver a "more refined experience."
