Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s New Update Is Now Live On Consoles & PC

Ubisoft‘s open-world action-RPG, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, received a brand new patch today on consoles and PC. Said patch is dubbed Update 1.3.2 and is available to download now on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Stadia and PC.

Specifically, the new update prepares the viking-themed adventure for the upcoming Discovery Tour: Viking Age DLC, which is being pitched as a historically accurate expansion that’ll be free to owners of the base game.

The Discovery Tour: Viking Age is scheduled to arrive on Oct. 19, and will be available as a standalone piece of paid DLC for those who do not own Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Elsewhere, the update also adds in a bunch of game improvements, bug fixes and quality-of-life tweaks, but there’s unfortunately no major game-changing features in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s latest patch.

The official 1.3.2 Update Sizes are as follows:-

  • Xbox Series X|S: 24.09 GB
  • Xbox One: 19.4 GB
  • PlayStation®5: 8.54 GB
  • PlayStation®4: 10.84 GB
