Get the details below.
New Content: Hilde’s Revenge
If you played to the end Valkyrie Elysee, you will be familiar with Hilde. This mysterious figure clashes with the protagonist throughout the story – she’s confident, cynical, and downright awesome.
She’s also the star of the free additional content coming to the game! Called “Hilde’s Vengeance”, it is accessible from the main menu and presents a whole new experience to play.
You play as Hilde herself. She is on a mission to take revenge on the all-father Odin and she will fight her way through all the obstacles in her way. Or more precisely, you will.
Playing as Hilde has a different feel to the main campaign. She’s a very different Valkyrie, with hard-hitting attacks, her signature halberd, and a unique skill tree. She doesn’t have an Einherjar to bring into battle, but she does have four Shadow Servants, who can aid her in battles, as well as a wide selection of Divine Arts to equip.
Long story short, she’s insanely fun to play – for anyone who wants more of this amazing fight…enjoy!
Two new difficulty modes: “Very Hard” and “Valkyrie”
If you’ve been playing the game since launch, you might have become an expert at hitting the undead. So let’s raise the stakes!
“Very Hard” is a new difficulty level that adds even more challenge to the game. You’ll need to use your skills and Einherjar carefully and exploit enemy weaknesses at every opportunity to get through each battle unscathed.
But maybe that’s not enough. If you have the spirit of a true Valkyrie (or if you’re just a glutton for punishment), you can switch to “Valkyrie” mode. This is the real test of your strategy, skills and reflexes – good luck!
The Seraph Gate
So you’ve finished the main campaign and brought Hilde’s Vengeance to its dramatic conclusion – what’s next? The seraphic door awaits you.
This new feature offers exciting endgame content that will test your combat skills against waves of enemies and against the clock.
You will climb floor by floor, facing different collections of enemies and certain bosses with a fixed selection of skills, Einherjars, Divine Arts and items. Each time you go up a floor, your equipment changes. It’s up to you to determine how to use the tools at your disposal to triumph over each challenge.
This mode will test your understanding of enemies and their weaknesses, as well as your resource management [2 articles]” href=”https://www.gematsu.com/genres/management”>management – knowing when to pop a valuable item or trigger a god art is key!
Hilde’s Vengeance and Seraphic Gate can be played after completing one of the multiple endings available in this game. They are the ultimate challenge for any Valkyrie Elysee player – and a hugely entertaining way to complete your experience with the game. Good luck!
