How to start the Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok DLC

Helping Havi

The Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok DLC is the continued story of Havi, better known as Odin in wider Norse mythology, as he tries to take fate into his own hands and stave off the end of his era.

While you do have to make a bit of headway in the main story first, there's a good chance that you can start the Dawn of Ragnarok DLC straight away once you've bought it. Here’s everything you need to do.

How to start the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok DLC

Since, like the rest of the Havi story arcs, the events of Dawn of Ragnarok take place in a vision Eivor is having back in Ravensthorpe, this DLC can be played at (almost) any time: you can slot this DLC in almost anywhere in the main story, just provided that you have already finished the other two Havi arcs first. However, you will have greater context if you have made it to the end of Eivor’s adventure.

With the DLC installed, jump into the main game and a cutscene will immediately play introducing Dawn of Ragnarok. When it’s finished, fast travel to Ravensthorpe and you will receive a quest marker to rest under a tree to the southeast of your town.

After this short introductory section, Eivor will seek the help of the Ravensthorpe mystic, Valka, to learn more. Make your way up to her hut in the northwest of the town and follow the simple steps to start the Dawn of Ragnarok DLC proper.

How to install the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok DLC

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla DLC usually needs to be downloaded separately from the main game. So if you can’t see any sign of Dawn of Ragnarok in your game, you need to head to your storefront of choice, either the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Ubisoft Connect, Epic Games Store, or Steam, based on which platform you own the base game on.

Alternatively, you can do this on the base game page on these storefronts as well. Just go to the main Assassin’s Creed Valhalla page and you should see an option to download add-ons, one of which will be Dawn of Ragnarok.

It’s a hefty file, but once it’s downloaded and installed you can jump right into your latest saved game.
