Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla fans are already waiting for the second big story DLC after Wrath of the Druids. Now the Italian Windows Store has apparently slipped through the release date.
Well, the information in the Italian store was apparently not entirely correct, because Ubisoft has now officially announced Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – The Siege of Paris and the date August 5th is incorrect. According to the press release, the second story DLC will be released a week later, more precisely on August 12th. Before that, however, Season 3 starts with the Sigrblot Festival, including new events, exclusive rewards and lots of new content. The Sigrblot season is available free of charge to all Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players and will take place from July 29th to August 19th.
In the new season there will be a mockery tournament and new dice games as well as three new quests. You can now also purchase a one-handed sword for the first time. To take part in the Sigrblot Festival time, you must have reached England and completed one of the first story arcs, Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire. The settlement must be at least level 2. An additional update is planned for later in the season and will introduce a new map pack for the river raids that will add more destinations on the rivers of Francia and Ireland.
The siege of Paris takes Eivor to France, on a dangerous path full of exciting quests through French landscapes and into the most famous battle of conquest in the history of the Vikings. There are new enemies lurking who must be defeated with new weapons, skills and equipment and skills. The expansion also reintroduces the black box infiltration missions, where you have full freedom to choose the best way to eliminate a specific target. The Siege of Paris is part of the Season Pass and can also be purchased separately as DLC.
Ubisoft has a lot planned for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. In addition to some free expansions such as the river raids, a large story DLC has already been released with Wrath of the Druids. Meanwhile, fans are waiting for the next expansion, which should take you to France, where you and your Viking horde are ambitiously attacking the capital Paris.
When exactly the Paris DLC should appear has not yet been officially announced by Ubisoft, even if the statement summer 2021 has been making the rounds for some time. In the Italian Windows Store, an entry was briefly seen that gave a specific date and of course that did not escape the attentive fans. Accordingly, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – The Siege of Paris could be released on August 5th – that’s not long away.
An official confirmation is still pending and the entry has meanwhile disappeared, but the date and screenshot of the entry seem to be quite realistic. The Siege of Paris revolves around the siege of the French capital, which you should infiltrate, among other things. It is also important to build strategic alliances again. This second DLC is part of the Season Pass. A few weeks ago, Ubisoft announced the novelty that Valhalla would be the first Assassin’s Creed to go into its second year, instead of a new game this year.
