Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the franchise’s most brutal game ever. So it’s only fitting that Ubisoft provides you with some flashy gear to slay your foes. Here are all the stylish Assassin’s Creed Valhalla skins and cosmetics you’ll be able to apply to Eivor.

Needless to say, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Eivor is going to be cleaning a fair share of blood from their mighty weapons. Regardless of which gender you go for, Eivor is a fearsome warrior covered in cloth and armor. But it’s important to look good whilst killing too.

The latest images show off some classy looking skins and cosmetics that Assassin’s Creed fans will be able to get their hands on. Ranging from Draugr-inspired gear to full-on homages to previous Assassin’s Creed protagonists.

Take a look at the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla skins and cosmetics in these brand new images.

How do you buy these skins and cosmetics?

Valhalla’s Helix Store provides ample opportunities to turn your game into a fashion show.

Assassin’s Creed games use a premium in-game currency known as “Helix Credits”. You can obtain this currency through two different means. You can either earn a limited amount for free by completing specific objectives, or you can also spend real cash to acquire a bulk amount of Helix Credits.

In addition to purchasing skins and cosmetics, they can also be used to save yourself time during the game. For example, in previous Assassin’s Creed games, Helix Credits could be spent on crafting materials to speed the gathering process up.

We’ve grabbed some images for you to look at the tattoos and skins you can currently get for your Eivor in Valhalla.

Character and Tattoo Sets

Listed below are the variants that come with a matching skin/tattoo set. These work extremely well when used together, but looks just as great on their own, too.

These outfit and tattoo sets will set you back between 200-800 Helix Credits, depending upon the item type you’re purchasing.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Yule Season update kicks off this month, bringing with it plenty of festive new features to the game. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Ubisoft is kicking off its first post-launch update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, allowing all players to enjoy a host of new content completely free of charge. The Yule Season patch aims to bring plenty of holiday cheer to every battle-hardened Viking, while also giving players opportunities to net themselves some new loot. 

Highlights include the settlement expansion, Yule Festival, new minigames, and a load of new store items. Whether you’re a new or returning player, there is plenty of exciting content to sink your teeth into. To help give you the lowdown on the game’s latest update, we’ve covered all the patch notes below.

Settlement Expansion + Revellers’ Hut

Ubisoft
The Revellers’ Hut will bring plenty of fun festivities to join in with.

One of the best parts of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was upgrading the Ravensthorpe Settlement. It’s here where players can construct various buildings to aid them on their conquest across England. The original settlement included a blacksmith, fishing hut, trading post, barracks, stable, and even a dedicated museum. 

However, the Yule Season will be expanding this area even further with the arrival of the Revellers’ Hut. This new hut will be bringing numerous festivals throughout the year. The first of which is the Yule Festival.

Yule Festival

Ravensthorpe looks a little different this time of year.

The Yule Festival is active from December 17 to January 7, with many festivities to enjoy and rewards to claim. Players can expect to see snow in Ravensthorpe, so you’ll need to wrap up in your warmest attire if you wish to keep the bitter chill out. 

During the Yuletide celebration, you can expect to get entangled with various festivities ranging from drunk brawls (yes, you read that right) to archery challenges and more.

New loot

Partaking in said festivities will reward you with Yule Tokens. This currency can then be used to redeem festive rewards at the Festival Shop. The event will be accessible after having completed one story arc (Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire), with rewards only being obtainable during the Yule Festival.

The following items can be obtained: 

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

Store items

The Hel’s Damnation Theme is now available via the store, while the Niflheim Theme will become available on December 22. Both of these can only be purchased with Helix Credits.

Join the Yule Festival and capture your favorite photo or video for a chance to win The Art of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and 50 Euros-worth of Helix Credits. The contest will run from December 17 through January 1 on both Discord and Twitter.

River Raid update

It wouldn’t be a Viking Christmas without a raid.

Aside from the new skills and abilities that will be unlocked in February 2021, a new game mode called the River Raid will bring three new maps that will be brimming with new gear, silver, runes, Books of Knowledge, and much more. 

The new Jomsviking Hall will also enable you to recruit more Jomsvikings to take with you to the new River Raids.

So there you have it, everything you need to know about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Yule Season update.
