Assassin’s Creed’s big move into RPG territory has proven pretty successful, but some series fans – myself included – have a soft spot for the tighter, more stealth-focused early entries. While future Assassin’s Creed games are unlikely to get any smaller, at least we’re getting some aesthetic throwbacks to the old days, including a new tribute to what is arguably the greatest entry in the series.
A fresh community challenge is live, awarding participating players with an Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood tattoo in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The challenge requires players to recruit a total of 350,000 Jomsvikings and – as with most of these challenges – it’s already most of the way to completion. You’ll just need to recruit a single Jomsviking to mark your participation.
It’s been a busy week in Valhalla, with free DLC featuring an Odyssey crossover, a sizable patch adding new stealth and difficulty settings, and as the reveal of the Dawn of Ragnarok expansion coming next year.
