When AC Valhalla's Siege Of Paris DLC Is Releasing | Screen Rant

After a few leaks and rumors, the second paid DLC expansion for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, The Siege of Paris, has an official release date. Players will be able to take Eivor on a Viking adventure to sack the famous city later this summer.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla's first expansion, Wrath of Druids, launched in May 2021 after a short delay. That expansion sent players to Ireland to help Eivor's cousin establish a trading network and secure his place as king of Dublin. The Assassin's Creed Valhalla DLC also had a heavy mythological component, as players fought werewolves and druids with mystical powers, though those abilities were explained away as the result of hallucinations caused by poison. The Siege of Paris is currently the second and final paid DLC expansion for Assassin's Creed Valhalla; Ubisoft announced at E3, however, that Assassin's Creed Valhalla would be getting post-launch content into the second year after its release, so there is still a chance a new paid DLC expansion could be announced.

Ubisoft officially announced that The Siege of Paris DLC will launch on August 12th, 2021. Unlike Wrath of Druids, The Siege of Paris appears to be a much more grounded adventure for Eivor. Full details about The Siege of Paris have not yet been announced, but it has been confirmed that players  will go to the kingdom of Francis and infiltrate the city of Paris. Once there, Eivor will forge alliances and help bring down the city from the inside. Players can prepare for The Siege of Paris by downloading the newly released 1.3.0 update for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, though a second download will be necessary once the DLC officially releases.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla will also be launching a free update for players this summer that includes the Sigrblot Festival, complete with new festival activities, cosmetics, and one-handed swords. After the launch of The Siege of Paris, details for future free updates and potential paid DLC for Assassin's Creed Valhalla are scarce. Based on Ubisoft's original post-launch road-map, players should expect at least one more free festival in 2021. While Ubisoft has teased a second year of content for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, including surprises, it's possible that much of next year's content will be recycled from the first year's free updates.

But at least one significant piece of new content is incoming. Ubisoft teased at E3 a new Assassin's Creed Valhalla expansion represented only by a fiery gate. Some have taken this to confirm rumors of an expansion to the mythical side of Assassin's Creed Valhalla with the addition of Muspelheim. In the meantime, players can enjoy much more grounded raiding adventures in The Siege of Paris.
