Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the latest installment from the Assassin’s Creed game franchise, which has already seen tons of new content and seasonal festivals since its launch, but now we prepare for war, as the AC Valhalla Sigrblot festival goes live.
When is AC Valhalla Sigrblot running till?
Sigrblot started on the 29th of July and will run through until August 19th, giving you plenty of time to see and enjoy everything the event has to offer.
The event is free of charge, and to participate you do not need to have any of the games DLC or expansions.
What is Sigrblot?
The Sigrblot festival is a Norse festival that marks the beginning of summer, its also a time to make sacrifices to Odin, as the Drengre prepare for war in the summer raids.
In AC Valhalla, Sigrblot heavily focuses on making preparations for battle and raids, with an extra blacksmith in the town and some other, more interesting folk too.
How to take part in AC Valhalla Sigrblot?
As with previous events in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, there is only one requirement to join in with the festivities, you must have completed the first part of the main story, meaning you have forged at least one alliance.
If you are just starting out with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you will need to quickly complete the missions in Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire before you will be able to take part in Sigrblot.
There are three main quests in AC Valhalla’s Sigrblot event, each of these tests your skills in very different ways.
Fight or Flyte:
Flyte is Assassin’s Creed’s answer to Viking rap battles, where two opponents must try and outwit each other.
Test your metal:
Eivor and her Jomsviking must face off against a pair of opponents in this combat arena, where you will only have a choice of 3 weapons to take into battle with you.
War games feature a game of Orlog against Alwin, if you’re new to Orlog, I highly recommend learning how to play, before jumping to this headfirst.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Sigrblot Rewards
As with all events in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, there are rewards for completing seasonal quests, these rewards come in the shape of tokens, which can be used to purchase special items that are only available during the Sigrblot event.
These tokens from the Sigrblot festival can be used to purchase:
- Settlement Items
- Ship Designs
Will AC Valhalla’s Sigrblot Festivale Return?
At the moment there has been no official announcement to say if Sigrblot will be a regular event, it could be likely that we will see all events return each year, but we will not know for sure unless we see the Yuletide feast return in the winter.
