Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is about to kick off another seasonal festival, and this time it’s Sigrblot – a Viking celebration of the beginning of summer and of victory in general. From July 29 – August 19, you can join in the festivities by helping gather offerings to the gods, playing Viking games, and trying out the open-world game’s new one-handed swords.
During Sigrblot, which is free for all players, you’ll be able to fight in friendly tournaments alongside a hand-picked second. There’s also a series of Orlog matches to win back at home in Ravensthorpe, and new rewards to earn for winning. These include some new body art designs, camp decorations, and cosmetic looks for Eivor and the trusty raven Sýnin.
You’ll also be encouraged to go raiding, and the idea behind this is that you’ll need to amass a good amount of supplies before heading off across the English Channel for the Siege of Paris DLC that’s also on the way this summer. Ubisoft still hasn’t announced a specific release date for the expansion (included with the Valhalla Season Pass or available as a separate purchase), but we likely don’t have long to wait at this point.
