Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s first seasonal event, Yule Season, is available now. Yule Season lasts for three months, adding new mini-games and quests as free post-launch updates.

The first event during the Yule Season is the Yule Festival, though you must first reach England and complete the first narrative arc to gain access to the seasonal content.

The Yule Festival adds a new dedicated area to your settlement, including a new drinking game, archery mini-game, fist fight tournament, and two new character quests. You can earn exclusive Yule Festival rewards including decorations and a new gear set.

The Yule Festival ends January 7th, 2021, but the Yule Season continues in February.

February adds a second update to the Yule Season, adding an entirely new game mode called River Raids. River Raids are based on the existing raid mechanics and use Jomsviking recruits to fill out the crew. Jomsvikings will be given a big update, allowing them to earn XP and rank up.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available on PC (Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Store), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia. It’s rated M for Mature.
