A new update has gone live for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla which adds a much-requested feature – gear loadouts. This allows players to equip up to five specific loadouts and switch to them from anywhere in the game. Whether this is possible in the middle of combat is unknown.
To unlock loadouts, you’ll need to build the new Armory using foreign cargo obtained in River Raids. Furthermore, you need to upgrade Ravensthorpe to Level 3. In terms of other content, Title Update 1.5.2 adds new rewards to River Raids like new weapons and customization options for Eivor. So even if you’re not interested in building the Armory, it’s worth raiding all the same.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Google Stadia. It recently received a sizable new expansion in Dawn of Ragnarok which adds a new mythological story, new abilities, weapons and much more. For more details, check out our review here.
