Edward Kenway’s pirate costume from Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag has been introduced to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as part of a free patch in honor of the coming Ubisoft Forward event. From the Golden Age of Piracy to the Viking Age and beyond, the open-world series has transported players to a wide range of different historical periods.

Players can now embark on a Viking longship while wearing the Edward Kenway costume, which was introduced by Ubisoft to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla last year in homage to the show’s original protagonist, Altair.

Altair Ibn-La’Ahad, an Assassin active during the Third Crusade, served as the series’ first historical hero.
On the other hand, later games added a diverse cast of playable characters from other historical eras.

While the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed 3—a native Mohawk named Ratonhnhaké:ton—traveled through the American Revolution, Italian aristocrat Ezio Auditore featured in his own trilogy set during the Italian Renaissance. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, a notable pirate-themed chapter, puts players in the role of Ratonhnhaké:daring ton’s grandpa Edward Kenway, and the future Basim game Assassin’s Creed Mirage will star the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla villain.

Edward Kenway’s famous attire has recently been introduced to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in preparation for the next Ubisoft Forward event, according to a recent Assassin’s Creed Twitter post.

By using the UbiConnect service, players can now dress Eivor in the favored seafaring Assassin’s robes. Edward’s attire is now included in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla alongside the legendary garments worn by Altair and Ezio, who were both included last year.

Since several games now allow players to unlock and equip the clothing of earlier heroes despite being out of date, these cosmetic homages to protagonists of previous games have become a staple of the Assassin’s Creed series.

The next Assassin’s Creed Mirage is said to return the franchise to its roots while Ubisoft continues to maintain Assassin’s Creed Valhalla with fresh features.
