We were wondering if Season 1 of Assassin's Creed Valhalla was going to release as planned this December - but fear not - it has arrived.

Christmas or "Yuletime" is now available to players.

Release Date

"Yule Season" kicks off on Thursday, 17 December and runs until Thursday, 7 January.

Settlement Expansion

The Settlement is expanding, and the revellers have arrived to host numerous festivals throughout the year.

To kick things off, it begins with a Yule Festival...

Yule Festival

Many "festivities and rewards" are on offer, as snow arrives in Ravensthorpe!

During the Yuletide celebration, you can expect to get entangled with various festivities ranging from drunk brawls, archery challenges, and more.

Partaking in said festivities will get you Yule Tokens to redeem for some festive rewards at the Festival Shop.

  • Mōdraniht Ceremonial Outfit
  • Mōdraniht Tattoo Set
  • Mōdraniht Ceremonial Seax
  • Mōdraniht Ceremonial Shield
  • Traditional Yule Garland
  • Sacrificial Altar
  • Ritual Tree Ornaments
  • Cozy Fire Pit
  • Yule Beech Tree

The Yule Festival event will only be accessible having completed one story arc (Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire).

The Store

The Hel’s Damnation Theme is available via the Store, purchasable by Helix Credits.

The Niflheim Theme will become available on December 22 in the Store as well.

Holiday Community Contest

Join the Yule Festival and capture your favourite photo or video for a chance to win The Art of Assassin's Creed Valhalla and 50 Euros-worth of Helix Credits.
