Assassin's Creed Valhalla fans go to the barricades. The prices for items in the in-game shop are way too high and instead of delivering the DLC content, Ubisoft prefers to concentrate on it.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

The microtransactions in Assassin's Creed Valhalla are, so the fans feel, anything but "micro". But it's not just the high prices that make the fans angry. They believe that Ubisoft prefers to bring items into the in-game shop instead of focusing on new and above all playable content in the form of story DLCs.

Wrong priorities

In one Reddit post represents the User Zuazzer out that Of the 18 armors that are available in the game, nine can only be bought in the shop. Another problem should be the Advantages in the actual game that emanate from the microtransactions. In the thread, Zuazzer received a lot of approval, with many sharing his view that Ubisoft is more focused on monetization than on developing new content.

“As gamers, and even those of us who spent over $ 100 on the Collector's Edition, we haven't gotten much content in the past few months. All we got was a nice but kind of boring event and a lot of bug fixes. "

Most of the players in the thread agree with this statement. Many also cite the removal of the microtransactions from Middle-earth: Shadow of War as an example of the correct response to an exaggerated monetization of a single player game, for which players have paid the full price and possibly another 40 euros for the Season Pass.

For comparison: To only buy the nine armor packages, you would have to invest just under 105 euros in Helix credits. This is more than double the value, which Ubisoft ascribes to their Season Pass with two story DLCs. In the shop you can buy a lot more things like skins for your ship or decorations for your settlement.

The first DLC of the Season Pass is due to appear in the spring and it gives the impression that Ubisoft should deliver with this new content in order to please the players. There are currently no known plans by Ubisoft to change anything in the monetization of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which is too aggressive for players.
