Assassin’s Creed fans were treated to the reveal of some new DLC, a follow-up to the “Tombs of the Fallen” pack that released back in November of 2021. A launch date hasn’t been confirmed, but it will be “coming soon” according to today’s official announcement from the Assassin’s Creed Twitter feed:

The tombs are naturally filled with puzzles and traps, and although some fans remained skeptical, the new content was predominantly met with praise. It was mostly superior to similar concepts in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which included simpler elements such as hidden snakes, spiky floor tiles, and walls to move.
Although Ubisoft’s Tomb Raider games could stand to add a few more actual tombs, the puzzles they actually put effort into are genuinely creative and fun. It would be great to see how the new Tombs of the Fallen pack evolves, hopefully elaborating on what worked in the previous DLC (and perhaps fixing a flaw or two).

Still, Valhalla has gotten some very unique updates over time, like “The Forgotten Saga” and other free updates that really gave the game legs. It would always be nice to see even more content, and there’s still hope, since the devs continue to add simple patches like this:
