Assassin's Creed Valhalla's DLC Roadmap Includes Trips to Ireland and France

Valhalla's Vikings set their sights on two new lands for future expansions.

The next installment of the Assassin's Creed franchise isn't quite out yet, but Ubisoft is already laying out the next year or so of content for it. Valhalla's post-launch expansions will include trips to Ireland and France, as well as a very Viking-style holiday celebration.

Ubisoft published Assassin's Creed Valhalla's DLC roadmap today, which is set to run through at least summer 2021 and feature two new expansions. Some portions of it will be gated behind the Season Pass, while others will be free seasonal content that will roll out throughout the year.

The first bit of Season Pass content, an exclusive mission based on Beowulf, had slipped out before today. The two major expansions, though, sound like they'll be much larger. Wrath of the Druids arrives in spring 2021, and it will let players journey to Ireland and delve deep into the world of Gaelic myth and folklore.

The second expansion, coming summer 2021, is The Siege of Paris. Set during a "key moment in history," players can infiltrate Paris and partake in the prolonged siege of the city. The description says you'll uncover secrets and forge alliances, which honestly sounds pretty rad.

Both seem to lean into the different narrative strengths of Assassin's Creed, blending the mythological with the historical. Alongside those big expansions, there will be free seasonal content, including a late 2020 update that will bring the Yule Festival to your home settlement.

From these expansion plans and from what our own Mike Williams saw in a recent hands-on, Assassin's Creed Valhalla sounds like a massive game to explore. There will certainly be no shortage of Viking hijinks to get up to, and yes, Ubisoft has confirmed its educational Discovery Tour mode will return for Valhalla as well.

Ubisoft itself is still coming off a summer fraught with stories of misconduct and other issues. It's set to launch three major games this holiday season: Valhalla, Watch Dogs:Legion, and the Greek myth adventure Immortals Fenyx Rising. Whether all this chaos results in a new step forward for both Assassin's Creed and the company at large, we'll find out on Nov. 10. Assassin's Creed Valhalla goes live on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia. PS5 owners will also get Valhalla on Nov. 12, the day the next-gen PlayStation launches.
