Update: It would appear as though the next big update for Assassin's Creed Valhalla will launch next week. The patch has been spotted on Sony's servers by the reliable PlayStation Game Size, and that usually means that the update will be available to download the following week.
Ubisoft will also be preparing full patch notes, which will probably be published just before the patch drops. As for what's going to be included, the developer has already teased the arrival of one handed swords as a new weapon type, and we wouldn't be surprised if the update lays the foundations for Siege of Paris — Valhalla's second expansion.
Original Story: Ever since its release, Assassin's Creed Valhalla players have been asking for one handed swords to be added to the game. For whatever reason, the weapon type didn't make the cut, despite being a mainstay Viking weapon throughout Norse history. if you want to wield a sword, you've got no choice but to equip a two-hander in Valhalla.
Fortunately, a few months back, Ubisoft confirmed that one handed swords were going to be added to the game, but ever since the launch of Wrath of the Druids — Valhalla's first expansion — and then the Mastery Challenges update, the developer has been pretty quiet.
It sounds like a new title update is coming soon, however, and it'll likely include one handed swords. Finally!
The official Assassin's Creed Twitter account posted a teasing tweet about the oft-requested armament arriving with the next patch.
So when is this update actually dropping? Well, we know that previous patches have been discovered on Sony's servers about one week in advance, so it could be happening as early as next week. And if the official account is teasing an update, we would assume that it's coming very soon.
What's more, Valhalla's second expansion, Siege of Paris, is supposedly still set to release this summer. We wouldn't be surprised if this next update paves the way for additional information on that upcoming DLC.
