With the latest update of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, we can see that you can purchase XP boosts on the in-game store to progress quicker.
You need to pay additional money in order to get XP Boosts on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
The update adds a ”Utility” item to the in-game store of Assasin’s Creed Valhalla. It costs 1000 Helix credits, which is the equivalent of $10. And it adds a permanent 50 boost to the experience that the players gain throughout the game. The same XP boost can also be bought as part of a 1500 Helix credit combo that grants a 50-per cent boost to both XP and money.
We can say that these XP boosts are actually an option for those who want to progress further in a relatively short time. When we think about the seasonal events and DLC’s, fans of the game may consider buying the boost. This is actually not the first time Assassin’s Creed gets this option. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey also had this feature in the past. And it was criticized because of that feature.
Of course, some players will like this news and some are not. As you know, microtransactions are still a debate around the gaming community. Some people like it and some are not. Because in short terms, money brings you power in games thanks to microtransactions. But how necessary is that on a single-player game? That is another topic to discuss. But if you ask me, XP boosts, or any microtransactions that give you an advantage on games should not be allowed in any kind of games. Especially in single-player ones.
