The Oskoreia Festival has arrived in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and will run until December 2nd.
In this free, limited-time event, you’ll find new activities and quests, and a peculiar new stranger, all to reap a wealth of rewards.
The harvest season marks the start of Odin’s Wild Hunt. In this otherworldly tradition, spirits of the dead rise and savagely hunt the weak among the living. Defend your settlement from this harrowing threat by proving the Raven Clan is no easy prey.
A ghastly fog has enveloped Ravensthorpe. Some claim this spectral shroud offers protection from the spirits of the Wild Hunt, though others disagree. Regardless, the festivities go on! In the Oskoreia Festival, you’ll partake in three replayable activities — archery, horseback riding, and a new tournament against spirits.
A new horseback riding track makes its way around Ravensthorpe and time is against you! Use your mounted archery skills to clear blockades and hit specific targets to increase the timer. Each shot that hits the mark will grant you more time to stay in the race and give you a chance to reach the finishing line. Finish with enough time on the clock and earn a bronze, silver, or gold medal!
In the Oskoreia tournament, you’ll be cast into the Veil. In this spectral realm, you’ll fend off waves of spectral warriors as swiftly as possible. Face the various challenges ahead, from trained warriors to untamed beasts and monsters, and unlock harder levels to put your fighting skills to the ultimate test.
The archery contest returns with a twist! Shoot as many targets as possible to win points, but beware of the newly added friendly targets, as they will impact your progress and keep you away from the highest score!
New quests during Oskoreia’s festivities will see you protecting Ravensthorpe from harmful spirits. With such a troublesome threat, you’ll take aid from a strange newcomer, the Mad Monk, in the quest “Homeward.” After dealing with the Monk’s antics, you’ll have a chance at flexing your deduction skills in “An Honorable Death.” In this quest, you must solve the mystery of a fallen warrior whose name is written among those remembered yet recognized by none.
Completing activities and quests will earn festival tokens to spend at Norvid’s shop, filled with an array of frightening items, including the most fearsome weapon, Hel’s Scythe. Tokens may also be spent on settlement decorations, as well as new “bone” hair and beard styles, guaranteed to inspire fear in your enemies. You can also get your hands on a tattoo set and a new raven skin.
