Or any game for that matter.
Update 1.2 also adds new skills, including Raven’s Loot which will let your bird loot targets after ranged kills, and a close camera option for playing the game with a more over-the-shoulder look and feel. It will pave the way for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s upcoming spring-themed Ostara Festival event which starts on March 18 and runs until April 8.
