Ubisoft is rolling along on an impressive year of content as Assassin's Creed: Valhalla continues to provide exciting gameplay. The long-running franchise takes fans to the Viking age with an immersive experience that the game's developers continue to expand.

AC Valhalla Title Update 1.4.1 - data restructure

Just posted across Assassin's Creed social media, Title Update 1.4.1 will be coming to ACV servers next week (no hard date has yet been announced by Ubisoft). The update is centred around data restructure, and it's actually meant to support future content and updates, an exciting proposition.

In order to fully accommodate the title update, players will need to re-download the entire game, so try to plan your download time accordingly. The upcoming update consolidates the game files, resulting in a smaller overall game size on all platforms. Additionally, performance should improve resulting in faster loading times, improved world data streaming, and overall performance.

Note: Only the base game needs to be re-downloaded. Expansions and other DLC will not be affected by the restructuring.
