I bought WDL after the free weekend when online was released (standard edition for €24) and I kind of regret it
After I finished story/side/collectables it shows itself how empty that game is (both SP and online)
AC Odyssey, GR Wildlands and even GR Breakpoint all got me hooked for hundreds of hours each .. but not WD Legion
So I want to know from those who played those latest Ubi releases, how are Immortals and AC Valhalla content-wise .. will I get disappointed again throwing my hard earned money on them ? (when they become available at close price "standard edition for €24")
I will be posting this on all 3 games general discussions.
Thanks in advance

I can only speak for Valhalla, as I wouldn't be caught dead playing Immortals.
I played Valhalla thoroughly. Completed everything, explored every inch of the map, and looted everything was wasn't nailed down. It took 236 hours. I recently tried the raids, which added more time, plus the two expansions have to be done.
So, I'd say it's a big game, even if you don't play it as thoroughly as I did.
As far as the writing, visuals, quests, sound, music, combat, bugs, and a bunch of other gameplay elements go, that's another conversation. You'll get many different opinions so there's no point in me rambling on about it. I've enjoyed my time with it, but it does have its issues. I could tell you to wait until both expansions are released, then purchase it, but that would mean you'd have to wait until the summer to play it, maybe longer if something gets delayed.
If you're impatient, and need your fix right now, it's not a bad game. You'll get some heavy hours out of it.

I have Valhalla and WD:Legion and just played Valhalla.
The post-launch from Valhalla is just terrible. No other words can describe the slow patch cycles and lack of new quality of life improvements and bug fixes. Not talking about the lack of any story DLC for months. Origins had both DLC by march 2018.
Content-wise Valhalla has more content than both of the other games together I think. Sadly it isnt all quality content...
I just installed the game but never touched it. I am waiting for Aiden Pierce to play the whole game with him and not those lifeless NPC's. Sadly the post-launch of this game is also terrible. I thought Aiden would be out by now but we have to wait until June or August I think. The online stuff in this game should be seperated into a different game because it was released too late and nobody is playing this game right now. They should have focused more on the story and ditched the whole idea of play as everyone. This concept is just great for recruitable side characters but not for the main character in a story-driven IP.
I just dislike Ubisoft Quebec because of their forced humor in every game that isnt funny at all and how they treated the AC brand with Odyssey, instead of making this Immortals game and don't put too much fantasy stuff into AC. They clearly wanted to make a new IP from the start, so they now have too games which are very similar setting-wise.
On the other hand the post-launch was well done from what i've seen. They already have released three story DLC's and had features like transmog and NG+ from the start. This is how Valhalla should have been, when Ubisoft higher ups wouldnt just care for money and stretch the lifetime of their money-maker-game, which dramatically slows down the pace in which we get features.

Immortals has the best post launch of all of those games. Quebec is clearly a better studio these days over Montreal.
Valhalla has been positively pathetic with their post launch content/support. Each title update makes the game buggier.
WD Legion not sure what they have added if anything... oh yeah the online mode that no one really wanted. Not sure if they released any actual season pass content for that game.
