Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is getting even bigger, with a 1.2.1 title update that will lay the groundwork for Wrath of the Druids. But it’s not all prep work, as the patch will also add a handful of new skills, some significant bug fixes, and more. The patch will be available on all platforms tomorrow, April 27, at 5 AM PT / 8 AM ET.
Perhaps the most notable new additions will be a set of three of new skills you can use in your upgrade tree. Each of them are focused on letting you ignore hits while performing certain actions, and they’ll refresh on a timer after a few seconds. Cold Rage lets you ignore hit interruptions with successive regular melee attacks. Eye of the North prevents flinching from hits while aiming with your bow. And Intense Rage lets you ignore interruptions while using your off-hand parry or special attack.
The update will also add the ability to toggle the cinematic camera during finisher moves, applies Bayek and Altair’s outfit to the transmog system, and fixes some bugs around the Brewing Storm mission. It also adds a bunch of new fish species previously missing from the game.
