Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn Of Ragnarok: Boar Mount Review

Yesterday Ubisoft released Dawn of Ragnaroklatest and biggest DLC expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. And, as has become a tradition, it includes a new, non-realistic animal that players can ride. This time it’s a huge armored boar. But unlike before, this time I broke down. I gave up. I rode this big pig.

A bit of history: Back in 2020, Ubisoft seduced me with an incredibly giant wolf. ride when Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launched for the first time. Because of my unwavering determination for realism, I declined. The first DLC, released last May, added a new fantasy animal, this time a big cat. Again, I refused. Then, last August, Ubisoft seduced me with a giant bear again. Readers, I almost broke down. But I held firm to my (admittedly stupid) Vera that my character should not ride these wild mounts.

I planned to keep this blog in the same format as before. You see, I had my own reasons for not wanting to ride these strange and exotic mounts. As usual, I’ll let the younger (perhaps sexier) Zach explain it. Take it away, me!

It may seem like a strange line in the sand, but listen to me. The thing is, even though the franchise has added more mystical and fantastical moments, I could always figure out how to make it work in my head. Of course, you can fight the minotaur in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. But perhaps it was just a story that was told so much that it became a memory. Remember that these games work through the Animus, which itself is a bizarre piece of science that is more magical than logical. Animus uses DNA from past people to present users with their DNA memories. (It doesn’t really make sense.) Memories aren’t perfect. In fact, in this last game, you can choose between Eivor, male or female, because the Animus doesn’t really know the gender of the historical Eivor. Thus, a myth that someone has heard all their life, something that could even appear in a dream, can pollute their DNA memory.

But a big wolf or bear that someone has ridden for years, using it to fight wars and save people, something that thousands of other people have seen, seems too far-fetched. The Animus may not be perfect, but he’s not that bad at getting the facts right.

As always, the younger Zach is doing well. But this time it’s different.

This new expansion is set in a fantasy setting of Norse mythology.. There are real lore reasons for this, and you can read more about it. in this other blogbut it is important to remember that Ragnarok not actually installed. The action takes place in a fantasy world built from the memories of an ancient species of super-beings, filtered through the memories of a Viking and brought to life with modern technology through the Animus. Or, to put it another way: all this is unreal. At least not in the same way as in other DLCs and adventures of the main campaign. (Wait, you’re talking about ancient super beings. are right, Zach?

So, this time Ubisoft won. I rode a giant boar. That was not easy. Unlike previous mounts, I needed to find this big old boar in the world. (If you want to find him too, here is a short video showing its location. Just prepare for combat and kill the boar owner first.)

Now, after riding it for a bit, I love my big pig. It can jump majestically and looks adorable while swimming. And unlike previous mounts, it fits perfectly. Peace Ragnarok is filled with ice giants and magical creatures. he is happy and you know what? I’m happy too. I can finally ride a big exotic animal in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla like everything you cool kids have been doing for years. This is what it looks like…have fun? I’m into it.
