Update: Hey, we told you that it would be close! Ubisoft has confirmed that the Forgotten Saga DLC will launch alongside Assassin's Creed Valhalla update 1.6.0 on the 2nd August.

The patch notes for said update will likely be published the day before, and we'll be sure to post them here on the site once they arrive.

Original Story: Whether you're a fan of Assassin's Creed Valhalla or not, you've got to admit that Ubisoft has done a great job of supporting it over the last two years or so. Said support is finally starting to wind down now, but the next slice of additional content sounds genuinely impressive in terms of scope — and it's a totally free update if you already own the base game.

Titled 'Forgotten Saga', this is a new adventure that essentially transforms Valhalla's gameplay blueprint into a mythology-based roguelike. Ubisoft has released a new video — embedded above — that covers the systems and mechanics of this fresh foray into Odin's legend. Definitely worth watching if you've been looking for an excuse to return to the open world title.

It should be noted, however, that Forgotten Saga doesn't have a release date just yet — but if Ubisoft is starting to push it through this kind of media, then it can't be far off. August could be a safe bet, we think.
