Recap: Everything that happened at the Assassin’s Creed 15th Anniversary Celebration

Valhalla and a 60 FPS Origins patch are the focus

It’s time for an Assassin’s Creed anniversary recap! It’s been 15 years since the series first debuted on Xbox 360 and PS3 with Altaïr in November 2007, and Ubisoft is celebrating a little early during the so-called Summer of Gaming with a stream.

Here’s everything that happened.

Assassin's Creed recap

Valhalla is getting more free content and an eventual end to Eivor’s story

More festivals, new mastery challenges (pack 2), extra tombs, and additional gear are coming to Valhalla as part of the “Year 2” content. The Forgotten Saga is a huge part of it, which is a new mode described as a “roguelite journey through Niffelheim.” All of it will be free, and “the end of the year will have one last surprise:” a free chapter to end Eivor’s story. This could all dovetail into an announcement made later in the stream, which we explain below.

A standalone version of the Discovery Tour Viking Age (educational mode) is out today, too, and Origins tattoos are coming in an update this week.

Info on the future of the series is coming in September

Ubisoft calls this a “very special” presentation that will most likely unveil the next major Assassin’s Creed entry. It’ll take place sometime in September: a date and time was not provided yet.

Note that “in the months to come” Ubisoft says there will be more celebrations beyond this stream.
