The world of Assassin’s Creed Valhara is filled with a variety of luxurious hairstyles-most of these are off limits unless you are Eivor. Valhalla offers a fairly small selection of Viking-approved haircuts. It can be unlocked and purchased by expanding payments. Even if you want to try the Anglo-Saxon style inspired by time in the UK, you’re usually stuck. With Scandinavian hairstyles. So far, that is, the inevitable customization mod has arrived.
Created by Hypermorphic, who previously created a similar mod for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the Eivor Customiser is a PC mod that gives you access to Valhalla’s various NPC haircuts. If you want to run around as a Viking version of Cassandra, there are also some haircuts from the Odyssey.
You can also play with different hair colors and hairstyle variations. And yes, if you want it, an immersive shattered pink is available. In Valhalla, strangers happen.
In addition to this, you also have the option to change Eivor’s proportions, so if you don’t like the Vikings, you can use this method to put them together. Or, whatever you choose, give them a long neck.
You need to download the Forger patch manager to install this mod. This will automatically create your own folder in the Valhalla game directory (set the game location to ACValhalla.exe instead of Forger’s ACValhalla_plus.exe). Next, you need to move the .forger2 file from the Eivor Customiser mod to the Forger Patches folder in the Valhalla game directory. At this point, you can open Forger and make changes.
As the Eivor Customiser mod memo mentions hypermorphically, these hairstyles were not intended to be worn by Eivor, so long haircuts can dig into your clothes. To avoid this, you can hide some clothing in-game, as you did with Cassandra’s haircut. NPC haircuts are also not of the same quality as those explicitly designed for Eivor, so you may encounter slightly floating physics and strange scalps.
It turns out that the mod just replaced the color of Eivor’s classic blonde haircut, so if you want to tinker with the look, I recommend going to Ravensthorpe’s tattoo shop. The process of changing hairstyles can also take some time, as you must exit the game to use Forger each time you try a new hairstyle. For this reason, it’s a good idea to look at the preview image on the mod page before trying it out.
The mod seems to be on track for players already, and hypermorphic says it will consider introducing a beard option next. A few players have then requested to add tattoos and weapons, but Ubisoft isn’t completely happy with these customization options as they are currently on sale in the store. However, in order for this mod to be installed and fully functional, it must be out of the way. So I hope Ubi will close his eyes.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft has released a patch today, adding more performance options for the Xbox Series X / S and PlayStation 5 to welcome changes in quality of life.
