New Assassin's Creed Valhalla DLC Leak Has Odyssey Fans Very Excited
According to a new leak, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is about to crossover with its predecessor, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, in an upcoming DLC for the former PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X game. In a few weeks, Ubisoft will release Valhalla's second DLC, Siege of Paris, after releasing Wrath of the Druids earlier this year. That said, more DLC is coming after this, with Ubisoft confirming support continuing in 2022 with more DLC releases akin to the aforementioned DLC. And it looks like one of these DLC drops will add a questline involving Kassandra, one of the two protagonists in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and technically the canonical protagonist of the game's two playable main characters. Not only is Kassandra the series' most popular female assassin, but she ranks right up there with Ezio, Bayek, and a couple of others as a fan-favorite.
The leak comes the way of prominent and reliable Assassin's Creed leaker, J0nathan, who relays the information courtesy of recent files added to the game. Now, I know what you're wondering: how is this possible? Assassin's Creed Odyssey takes place in Ancient Greece while Assassin's Creed Valhalla takes place in Medieval England. That said, if you completed the former and its DLC, you'll know Kassandra becomes immortal, and even meets Layla Hassan in the modern day. In other words, meeting Eivor isn't a problem.
Unfortunately, the game's files don't disclose many additional details, but J0nathan claims there are files for dialogue between Kassandra and Eivor on Skye Island and this dialogue is related to a quest. For now, it remains unclear how extensive this questline is, but it appears to be more than a cameo and involves the pair tracking down an ancient artifact in classic Assassin's Creed fashion.
For now, take all of this with a grain of salt. While the source in question is typically quite reliable, it doesn't change the fact that all of this is unofficial and subject to change. Datamining leaks, in particular, are quite reliable in terms of validity. It's hard to argue with files anyone can pull from the game. However, datamining leaks can also be misleading and lead to false conclusions. We see it happen all the time with heavily-datamined games like Fortnite, Warzone, and Apex Legends.
