If you are one of those players who absolutely love to hunt achievements in games, but were disappointed with them not being present in the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, we have good news: they are finally here!

In November last year, players noticed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was missing an achievements page on then newly-launched Ubisoft Connect, and Ubisoft at first said that was intentional, but they have changed their minds after they faced a backlash from the community, and promised to deliver them at a later date.

And with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Update 1.1.1, the achievements system for the PC version of the game has arrived.

The patch adds in-game support for Ubisoft Connect achievements to the game.

Once the update is live tomorrow, you will start to get in-game notifications about achievements, whenever you complete them.
