This will help bring further support, new loot, rewards, and challenges along the journey.

One of those new skills is the Berserker Trap, which can be added to arrows and triggered by proximity movement, spreading a hallucinatory powder. There is also Battle Cry, an ability that emits a battle-ready shout, increasing Eivor’s strength and causing enemies to stumble, while interrupting their attacks. There is also the addition of Shoulder Bash, which pushes back enemies and destroys objects in the process.
For new skills, players can use a body shift with Assassin’s Carry after successfully assassinating an enemy. There is also Assassin Slide which can be used to run at enemies and knock them off-balance. Arrow Looter will increase Eivor’s chance of looting arrows from archers, while Fight Ready gets Eivor ready for battle with starting with one adrenaline slot filled. Then there is Power Stroke which delivers a longship speed boost costing stamina, and Long Ship Brace, causing the crew to raise their shields when you command them to.
The title update also comes with a number of life improvements, balance adjustments, and bug fixes, all details in a post on the Ubisoft website.
