Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Forgotten Saga Release Date Revealed

A release date is revealed for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s new roguelike free DLC game mode known as the Forgotten Saga.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a 2020 action role-playing game developed by Ubisoft that is the most recent mainline game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Many fans are excited for the Forgotten Saga free DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to release, which will be a roguelike game mode experience.

The free Forgotten Saga DLC that was first announced in mid June for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is creating a lot of excitement in the community as this is something Assassin’s Creed has never done before – introducing roguelike gameplay. For those that are unfamiliar, roguelike games are basically dungeon crawlers through procedurally generated areas while defeating enemies and looting items that will help during the run. If the player dies, they are returned to the starting area, and the entire “dungeon” resets, allowing almost infinite replayability.

Redditor Adam135790 posts a screenshot of a YouTube comment that shows an official Ubisoft account posting the release date for the Forgotten Saga DLC, which is August 2. The comment is on a Ubisoft video detailing the roguelike gameplay for Forgotten Saga that will be introduced when the DLC is released on that date. This news is likely exciting to many Assassin’s Creed fans who are excited to try out something new for the franchise.

Amid all of the different types of news surrounding Ubisoft and the franchise in general, like the Assassin’s Creed September event that is going to basically decide the future of the games, this news about free DLC that is going to be released in just a few days is welcome indeed. Many fans are looking forward to more news about Assassin’s Creed Infinity or any other future Assassin’s Creed titles, so this new game mode should be a good way to tide them over until that happens.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, along with its two predecessors, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Originsis a game that is very much wedged into the RPG genre, which is a slight step away from the original game design of Assassin’s Creed games, which was much more focused on action-adventure style gameplay and highlighting the game’s stealth mechanics. This roguelike game mode is yet another step away as it is a first for the franchise – but that does not mean that it will be any less entertaining or enjoyable to play. Though some fans hope the Assassin’s Creed franchise will drop RPG elements, many others enjoy these aspects of the recent mainline games.

In any case, fans can look forward to playing the free DLC Forgotten Saga in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on August 2.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
