Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been out for only a short while, and yet PC players have already found a way to circumvent Ubisoft’s paywall. AC Valhalla features premium cosmetics for you to dress your Viking in. Emma Kent reported for Eurogamer that users on Nexus Mods are sharing a table for Cheat Engine; a memory scanning software.
This software can then be used to gain access to premium cosmetics, some of which are not even available to purchase yet. One of which, the Bayek outfit, was only given to those who watched the Valhalla live stream launch. Kent shares pictures (slideshow above) of her in the various outfits, which she obtained via Cheat Engine.
The inventory editor for Odyssey has yet to be touched by Ubisoft but only time will tell if they become annoyed by people bypassing paying for products. Just for understanding, each premium pack in AC Valhalla would cost you 2000 Helix credits. A pack of Helix credits costs £16.99. So you can begin to imagine the amount of grinding that using Cheat Engine would avoid. However, it is a case of use at your own risk.
