It's on Sale on UBI connect and Epic might have to spring for the Gold edition but the last time that I hardly played the game.
I forgot about that part maybe I just pick up the basic game.
I'm still pissed that the Dawn of Ragnarok is some sort of "other" DLC not included in the Season Pass. If you're not going to include all of the DLC in the Season Pass, then why have a Season Pass at all?
Well it only is for one season. But yes, I hate that. You have gold, season pass, ultimate, then more DLC. Super Ultimate 2x Season Pass Deluxe Edition incoming.
It's a standalone xpac and it has the same price as the base game? Must be massive.
I thought it was $39.99 and the base game at release was $59.99. Could be wrong though.
And I now see that there's an AC: Valhalla "Complete Edition." Fuck Ubisoft and their bullshit. I thought I bought the "Complete" edition when I bought the Gold edition at launch.
Divine new setting aside, Dawn of Ragnarok doesn’t take the long-standing formula of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to new heights in any significant way. The Hugr-Rip and new host of supernatural abilities are a fun addition to the series, but they’re used so sparingly that they don’t feel vital. Outside of that, my 20-hour adventure through Eivor’s godly alter ego felt much like the last 100-plus hours I’ve spent with them since the main game came out 15 months ago. It’s consistently fun gameplay, yes, but also disappointing and overworn in that I’m starved for some kind of real shakeup to how it plays. Instead, the only surprises left to anticipate are how Ubisoft is going to repurpose systems we’ve already seen every bit of to fit into a new theme and setting. The banality of the mostly unaltered flow of gameplay doesn’t do the celestial locales and story any justice.
The base game is showing as $24 for me.Base game, $14.
Season Pass (Expansions 1 and 2), $10.
Roguelike gameplay elements would definitely not work in a game like this. It's perfect for games that are smaller in scope like Hades and Rogue Legacy, though.I have zero interest in Roguelike modes. Nothing more boring than repeating the same thing over and over again, especially when many games (like this one) are repetitive as is.
End of the year there will be another "chapter", which I assume is another few missions of story content. I guess I will wait until then before picking up this game again. At that point it would have been two years since I finished the main game. I don't see why they can't release DLC at a normal pace. It makes me less likely to play all of the game, not more likely.
It's a roguelite. Separate procedurally generated area, you unlock rewards as you progress. When you die, you keep those but your character resets. It's fine.Roguelike gameplay elements would definitely not work in a game like this. It's perfect for games that are smaller in scope like Hades and Rogue Legacy, though.
Got a question about AS:V, I just got back into it after a few months, had 4-5 consecutive updates, then wouldn't start until I rebooted, finally got it running again. Now when I melee I get what looks like a rain of icicles? They don't do any damage that I can see, but I'm busy fighting so can't be sure of that.
Honestly not sure what's going on with this. Awhile ago I had horrible crashes, but I came back a patch or two ago and suddenly it was better. It seems somewhat random, related to hardware, drivers etc... but at least for me it used to be fixed but I've not gone to any expansion areas yet.Is there any fix for the crashing? It seems to crash every hour or so in the Ireland DLC. Which isn't too far off from how the game was about two years ago, but I was hoping they would fix the game with all of these patches over the years. Can't seem to find a solution that works.
