AC Valhalla recently announced a new DLC, the Forgotten Saga. In this new DLC, we would see many new things in the game. This update was released on August 2nd, 2022. It will be free for the players, who already own the game. This DLC covers a new story where you head to the land of Niflheim. You will play as Odin himself. In this article, we will discuss everything that AC Valhalla Forgotten Saga DLC has to offer and more.
Let’s check out all the new things that AC Valhalla The Forgotten Saga DLC has to offer.
10. New Storyline
The Forgotten Saga brings a new storyline, where you play as Odin himself and you will go to the world of Niflheim. Odin will go to the realm of dead and will try to resurrect his dead son Baldr who was killed in the Ragnorok expansion. Hel, daughter of Loki would the main boss in this DLC along side the Dragon Nidhogg. I think this would be a great experience for people who love Greek Mythology as they would be able to explore more of the famous Greek Mythology.
9. Rouge-Lite Game Mode
The Forgotten Sage DLC in AC Valhalla will follow a new game mode called Rouge-Lite. In this game mode, each time you’re defeated in the DLC mode, you will have to start from the beginning. Another thing when you’re defeated in this mode, you also lose your current gear that you’re wearing, but you gain a new currency, special new perks, new abilities, and gear that you can modify to defeat the strong bosses in this DLC.
8. Armors and Weapons
In this DLC, you go to the realm of the dead, Niflheim. As you start this DLC and go to Niflheim, you can only use Armor and Weapons that you can find throughout Niflheim. You cannot use the Armors and Weapons which you obtain through the main story. There are around 7 in total and you can upgrade each one of them four times as you upgrade them, you unlock new perks and new abilities.
Niflheim Helix Armor Sets have specific stats and perks. Another thing in this mode is when you die, you have to choose the Armor and Weapon which you prefer. You have to choose the armor set from the menu before you respawn again. You also earn a specific currency which you can use at a vendor in Niflheim to upgrade your Armor and Weapons.
7. Abilities and Buffs
As I mentioned above that you can’t use the Weapons and Armor that you obtain in the main story, you also cannot use the Abilities and Buffs too that you obtain in the main story in this DLC. You can earn new Abilities and Buffs in this DLC by defeating the enemies those who guard the mini-bosses. These abilities remain with us even when you die, it’s not like the armor sets.
You can upgrade these abilities by 3 levels, you just have to go to the Vendor in Nfilheim. You can also buy weapons and new runes from this secret vendor that you can find in Ibsarp. To take these new runes back to the main story you need to build the new Everold’s Workshop. You have to build this Workshop in Nfilheim.
6. Extra Activities
This DLC offers many side quests as well, these side quests are optional and they wouldn’t affect the main story of the DLC. If you decide to give these side quests a try, you get rewards like coins, gems, and memories when you complete them. You can use these rewards to buy favours from a secret vendor called Nar.
First, you need to finish side quests in the DLC, and you’ll get a reward of new currency ‘Memories’. You’ll be able to buy these favours from Nar. These favours are bonuses or perks which you can use during your run in the Forgotten Saga DLC.
4. New Boss Fights
As you start the Forgotten Saga DLC, you enter Nfilheim and you explore through four different regions here. So for each region, there would a boss fight. In total there would be four boss fights. The main boss fights for this DLC are Hel, the daughter of Loki and Dragon Nidhogg.
