Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Yule Christmas Festival Is Now Live

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players can look forward to free seasonal content every three months, starting with this month’s Yule Festival (via Ubisoft).

Eivor’s settlement, Ravensthorpe, is now covered in snow and Yuletide decorations. Players can also take part in various quests that involve singing, drinking, contests, and more drinking.
