Well this is a surprise, isn't it? Ubisoft has pushed Assassin's Creed Valhalla's The Last Chapter update live on PS5 and PS4, one whole week earlier than anticipated. The patch was set to go live on the 6th December, but players can download it right now. It's unclear as to why Ubisoft has done this, but a post from the official Assassin's Creed Twitter account reads: "We hope you enjoy The Last Chapter of Eivor's story...and the additional surprises we have before 2022 comes to an end."
Patch 1.062 weighs in at 1.8GB on PS5. The headline act is obviously The Last Chapter, which brings Eivor's saga to a close with various story conclusions delivered through a new quest. It also includes an option that lets you keep your hood up at all times — even during combat.
