There are a total of three new abilities that were added in title update 1.2.2. These abilities were first revealed in an official blog post by Ubisoft. The post lays out what the three abilities are:

  • Mounted Archer = Eivor can use their bow ability while mounted.
  • Shield Master = Eivor automatically rotates to block incoming attacks by holding up their shield.
  • Unstoppable = While in combat, Eivor’s sprint becomes unblockable and knocks enemies back at the cost of stamina.

If you wish to unlock the three abilities listed above head into your game. Once in the game open the Skills menu. On this screen the three abilities will appear. They are along the Y lines from the center of the skill tree. To purchase any of the listed abilities spend your available skill points on them.

Once the ability is unlocked you can use it in game. Personally as an archer build the Mounted Archer ability is a very nice addition to have for my character. Let me know which abilities you grabbed in the comments below.
