The next update of the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla title looks set to feature one-handed swords in the game.
Ubisoft mocked the arrival of the much-requested feature in a tweet from the official Assassin’s Creed account on Monday.
The company previously discussed plans to add one-handed swords to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in June.
“We’re adding to the community requests for changes and features as well,” said Karen Lee, senior community developer at Ubisoft Montreal. “For example, we’re adding swords to one hand in the coming weeks.”
Ubisoft said in late April that future updates to the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla title would be released less often in an attempt to improve its quality.
The company said it was moving from a four-week title update release cycle to a five-week release “to allow for more in-depth testing and refinement” after the release of some disappointing patches.
“Our community is at the heart of everything we do, and we always strive to provide you with great experiences,” Ubisoft wrote. “That said, we recognize that some of our recent title updates may not have met your expectations or have met other standards.”
Lee of Ubisoft also said last month that Valhalla will receive a second year of expansion in 2022.
“For the first time on an Assassin’s Creed title we will be supporting the game until its second year,” he said.
The first expansion of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Wrath of the Druids, launched in May. His second expansion, The Siege of Paris, will be released this summer.
Ubisoft has been working on Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a massive online game that will evolve over time as a live service.
