Tomorrow, Ubisoft will drop a new update for Assassin's Creed Valhalla which brings a fresh batch of content and improvements including new difficulty level, more river raids and rune perk changes.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla Title Update 1.3.1 brings three new Rivers to the River Raids game mode - Erriff, Berbha and Rhine. Also, you'll get to face two River Champions and the new Champions of the Faith who will drop new weapons. Ubisoft also added new rewards to River Raids (Lugh's Armor and 5 weapons - including a short sword).

Additionally, there are three new abilities that can be found in River Raids monasteries: Spinning Harpoon which allows Eivor to perform a spinning attack that can be combined with other harpoon-based abilities.

Percussion Arrow hits an enemy's shield to create a shockwave that staggers and damages nearby enemies and Precision Axe Throw where Eivor performs a devastating axe throw that targets an enemy's weak point.
