KEY POINTS

  • "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" is now out
  • The game features a lot of premium items that players could obtain by using in-game currencies
  • Several players have reportedly discovered a way to get all these premium items for free

"Assassin's Creed Valhalla" is just a few weeks old, but some players have already discovered a way to get all of its premium items, including unreleased ones, for free.

A report released by Eurogamer revealed that Nexus Mods modders have figured out a way to give themselves every cosmetic item in the game. These items are mostly premium ones and could only be obtained by in-game currency, through in-game premium packs that entail Helic credits or via Reda, a merchant in the game.

However, it appears that these mods are not exclusive to the items in packs. Some modders reportedly gained access to items that are not yet available in the game. According to Eurogamer, "On some forums [sic] users are sharing images such as this fiery wolf, along with Ezio's Brotherhood Outfit, which has not yet been made available in Valhalla." The report revealed that this is possible because of a table for Cheat Engine that users share.

This said Cheat Engine enables players to access sets like Draugr, Huldufolk, Valkyrie and Berserker packs on PC, the report added. It also allows users to load unreleased items in the game. In other words, the Cheat Engine is an inventory editor.

This news is no longer surprising for the members of the "Assassin's Creed" community. It can be recalled that in 2018, an inventory editor was also created for "Assassin's Creed Odyssey." However, unlike the one for "Valhalla" that only took a couple of weeks, it took modders five months to create the inventory editor for "Odyssey."

"Assassin's Creed Valhalla" has been having a lot of issues like exploits, bugs and other technical problems since it was launched. Despite this, the latest installment of the "Assassin's Creed" series has proven to be very popular among gamers. Ubisoft would likely capitalize on this momentum, so there's a chance that targeting mods would be the least of its current priorities.

"Assassin’s Creed Valhalla" is now available on various gaming platforms. The game is playable on PC, Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS5 and Google Stadia.
