Assassin's Creed Valhalla Getting Beowulf DLC
 
Quote:

We're still yet to see proper Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay, but there's already word on the game's season pass via Ubisoft's German store listing.

Specifically, the season pass will unlock a mission surrounding the legendary Beowulf - in which Valhalla main character Eivor will "discover the cruel truth behind the legend".

The story of Beowulf, of course, is told in the Old English epic poem of the same name (and also in a terrible CGI film with Angelina Jolie). Beowulf is the hero, who goes to slay a monster but then cops it a few years later trying to defeat a dragon. (At more than 3000 lines, the poem's words drag on also.)

It'll be interesting to see the Assassin's Creed take on all that.

This is the second exclusive mission for the game, following the vague mention of a quest named "The Way of the Beserker", which you get if you pre-order.

I liked the CGI film.

For anyone familiar with or fond of the literature, the CGI film is best forgotten.

Yeah the book is infinitely better and the film is mostly best forgotten. And that makes me mad because it really had potential. The voice acting and visuals were great but the story had some very weak spots. I still like watching certain scenes though. And the original teaser was cool. It just didn't deliver.
