Assassin's Creed Valhalla Update 1.5.0 is launching tomorrow, adding in a new difficulty mode and improving the game's stealth mechanics, among other changes.
The update also lays the foundations for the upcoming Dawn of Ragnarok expansion, which is due to launch on 10th March 2022. However, when it comes to the base game, there's plenty of cool changes. The new Saga Difficulty Mode decreases the difficulty of the game, reducing enemy damage and stopping enemies from scaling up with the player, for those who just want to experience the story. It will also give players more time to perform stealth actions without being detected.
Speaking of stealth, the update should address a few of the problems that a lot of players had with the game's stealth. The AI should react more consistently to whistles, while animals shouldn't detect Eivor and then alert NPCs nearly as much.
There's also a lot of bug fixes and some other small changes. You can check out the full patch notes down below.
