Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a massive, time-consuming Viking adventure, featuring a gorgeous open-world. If you don't have the time to play the game as it was intended to be played, then Ubisoft now has you covered with Assassin's Creed Valhalla XP and Silver boosts.
These permanent boosts have appeared on the Assassin's Creed Valhalla in-game store, and you will need to open your wallet to get them.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla XP & Silver Boosts
This isn't the first time Ubisoft has added these types of microtransactions into their games, and it probably won't be the last. It is, however, a bit of a controversial addition, as many players believe this could be seen as "pay-to-win".
Assassin's Creed Valhalla isn't a multiplayer game, so these XP and Silver boosts won't affect other players at all.
As spotted by GameInformer, you can purchase the following boosts with Helix Credits, which in turn you purchase with real money.
- Permanent 50% XP Boost: 1,000 Helix Credits ($10)
- Permanent 50% XP and money boost: 1,500 Helix Credits ($15)
GameInformer reached out to Ubisoft about these Assassin's Creed Valhalla microtransactions.
The publisher responded with the following message: "As more and more post-launch content becomes available, we want to give the option to players to advance their progression. Utilities allow players who lack the time to fully explore the world of Assassin's Creed Valhalla to be able to acquire the game’s best gear, as well as other items, by accelerating their progress.
For instance, these players can purchase maps that uncover some interesting locations in the world, but would still have to visit and play them to get their rewards."

Thankfully, the game isn't designed to really limit players into grinding much at all, so the Assassin's Creed Valhalla XP and money boosts are definitely not mandatory.
It is up to each individual player to decide if they want to throw their wallet at these Assassin's Creed Valhalla microtransactions.
