Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s latest title update adds the free Bifröst weapon bundle

Ubisoft has detailed the latest Assassin’s Creed Valhalla patch ahead of its release on June 28.

Headlining the game’s 1.5.3 update is the free Bifröst Bundle, which includes the Shimmering Shield and Iridescent Axe.

“These weapons were chiseled from the same crystal used to build the Bifröst, Asgard’s rainbow bridge,” Ubisoft said.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to receive a free rogue-lite inspired mode called The Forgotten Saga this summer.

It will be followed later this year by the release of the last episode of protagonist Eivor’s story.

Ubisoft said earlier this month that it plans to “unveil the future of Assassin’s Creed” in September.

While not officially announced, it has been claimed that Ubisoft is planning to release a smaller-scale, stealth-focused Assassin’s Creed game this year or in 2023.

Codenamed Assassin’s Creed Rift and starring Valhalla character Basim, it will reportedly be released before the officially announced Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which is a collaboration between Ubisoft Quebec (Odyssey) and Ubisoft Montreal (Origins and Valhalla).
