The endless hunt for Assassin's Creed Valhalla trophies continues, as does the endless stream of patches and content fixes. Tomorrow, we will see Title Update 1.5.0, complete with the Dawn of Ragnarök expansion support and a Saga difficulty mode.

The official patch notes say that there is now a Saga difficulty. "Write your own Viking Saga without having to worry about the challenges of stealth and combat." This means that enemies won't scale with players and thus won't deal as much damage all the time. In addition, this will help players by giving them more time to make assassinations, shoot, or disengage from foes before being detected.

Title Update 1.5.0 is also going to add Dawn of Ragnarök expansion support ahead of release on March 10th. The new slab of the game will be adding a huge new area, as well as weapons, armour, story beats, and more. Naturally, this means more digital trinkets for us, and we have already scanned in the Dawn of Ragnarök trophies for you to peruse.

Thankfully, there are a few stealth fixes in place for Title Update 1.5.0 as well. AI reactions to whistling is improved, you can no longer be randomly seen when using environmental traps, wild animals no longer randomly detect Eivor and alert NPCs, NPCs will take a little longer to disengage, and the "enemy detection cones" when using a bow have increased to normal size. There are new combat settings, too. This includes "Damage Eivor Takes, Eivor Damage Output, Ration Healing Ratio, Adrenaline Regeneration, and Enemy Health Modifier." With a number of bugs fixed for gameplay, main quests, world events, side activities, and more, this is shaping up to be a tidy update.

Title Update 1.5.0 drops on February 22nd and comes in at 3.6GB for PS5 and 7.94GB for PS4. Are you still playing this million-hour saga? Let us know in the comments!
