Assassin's Creed Valhalla Season Pass Features Exclusive Beowulf Mission
Nothing like a good old fashion poem about a hero.
It seems as if we’ll be seeing a special mission unlocked for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla providing you purchase the season pass for the game. This is according to a listing that appeared on Ubisoft’s German store.
While it seems to have been removed now, the games overview page detailed the information. Now it simply reads “Experience a gripping story mission. It will be available from publication.” However, GameRant originally reported on this with a screenshot of the German page, then Twinfinite shared the screenshot of the Google Translated page. I’ve nabbed the Google Translated image from Twinfinite, (Thanks!) so you can read it below.
As you can see, the Season Pass area mentions that players will not only unlock new content, explore new countries, and find new gear, but they’ll also get to experience a new mission that seems exclusive to Season Pass holders called “The Legend of Beowulf”.
According to the listing, players will get to discover the cruel truth behind the legend.
Beowulf is an Old English poem that tells the story of Beowulf, who goes off to slay a monster, then later a dragon. The poem itself, according to Wikipedia, says that Beowulf aids the King of Danes, which was basically Denmark. However, after defeating the monster he returns to Geats, which is known now as Sweden. It’ll be interesting to see how we’ll be taking part in the story as players, no doubt traveling to the countries associated with the poem.
The official page for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla at current also says that players who pre-order the game will get an exclusive mission titled “The Way of the Beserker”, this is only for pre-orders though and also not being kept hush-hush, unlike the Beowulf story.
You’ll probably have already seen the official cinematic trailer, however, we also got to see a “gameplay” trailer which didn’t feature the type of gameplay players expected to see. Either way, anticipations for the game are still high. We already know we can visit the Four Kingdoms and even Stonehenge, and we can expect to see a “unique narrative”.
Are you excited about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla? It’ll be arriving on PS4 and Xbox One as well as next-generation consoles. You can pre-order the game on Amazon if you like. PC will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store.
