Everything Added In Assassin's Creed Valhalla's Tombs Of The Fallen DLC

Having had nearly two years to truly settle in with the series' fanbase, "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" is another successful entry into the long-running action-adventure franchise. While past "Assassin's Creed" titles have varied in quality, "Valhalla" has stood out among its predecessors for its unique setting, Viking characters, and plenty of other features that "Assassin's Creed" fans have never seen before. Ubisoft continued to add to "Valhalla" with the release of the "Tombs of the Fallen" DLC expansion, which allowed players to explore a variety of tombs in search of valuables. And now, it seems this particular expansion will be getting a part two.

Announced as part of the game's 1.6.1 title update, "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" will be receiving a second "Tombs of the Fallen" pack that will offer even more tombs for players to explore as well as a litany of other fun additions. These add-ons include not just the aforementioned tombs, but new ways to improve the Ravensthorpe settlement and even the return of a popular limited-time event that seems to be perfect for the season. Here's everything that's being added to "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" alongside "Tombs of the Fallen Pack 2."

Three new Tombs

One of the more fun gameplay elements within "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" is its puzzle tombs. Introduced back in November 2021 as part of the free "Tombs of the Fallen" DLC, these tombs are environmental puzzles where players can access burial chambers in order to obtain loot. It seems that this addition has clicked with the player base and in turn, Ubisoft has decided to add to "Tombs of the Fallen" and will be bringing in three new tombs that players can explore at their leisure.

As seen in the patch notes for update 1.6.1, three new tombs can now be found scattered throughout England. The locations of these new tombs vary, with the patch notes stating that one will require players to go underwater while another will force them to navigate through molten lava. These tombs will be available for exploration from the early part of the game — more specifically when you unlock the Ravensthorpe settlement — so you shouldn't worry about progressing through the others before you explore the new ones.

A new settlement building called the Rune Forge

Throughout your playthrough of "Assassin's Creed Valhalla," building up the Ravensthorpe settlement will be a big part of the game and a handy way for you to gain upgrades. In its current form, Ravensthorpe is already pretty extensive and allows players to create an armory, shop, and several different kinds of farms in order to produce resources. In the latest patch, Ravensthorpe is receiving yet another extension by allowing players to construct a new building called the Rune Forge.

"With the Forge, you can turn the perks of your currently owned gear into new runes in exchange for silver," the patch notes say. Runes can also be sold for silver. The Rune Forge building is unlocked and can be constructed once the Ravensthorpe settlement reaches Level 4. It's important to note that the Rune Forge does not support items for other "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" expansions, limiting what you can use to gain runes to whatever you can obtain in the base game.

The return of the spooky Oskoreia Festival

Originally introduced in November 2021, the Oskoreia Festival was a limited-time event in "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" in which players gained access to new quests, rewards, and activities while adding a distinctly creepy vibe. The event in its original form lasted from Nov. 11, 2021 until Dec. 9, 2021 (per Vulkk). As stated in the 1.6.1 patch notes, players will gain access to this event beginning on Oct. 20. The Oskoreia Festival will then run through Nov. 10.

"The veil of Oskoreia covers Ravensthorpe one more time," the patch notes say about the Oskoreia Festival's return. "This October, take on the Wild Hunt of the Oskoreia Festival by defending your settlement from the threat of harmful spirits and prove the strength of the Raven Clan." Releasing this event in the dead of fall is a useful way of capitalizing on the season's Halloween holiday and looks primed to provide players with a spooky experience that rivals the original event.
