Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Next Major Expansion, The Siege of Paris, Releases August 12th
Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s next major expansion, The Siege of Paris, will be available on August 12th. In addition, Season 3, Sigrblot Season, features exclusive rewards and activities accessible to all players. The Sigrblot Festival is live this Thursday, July 29th for all players until August 19th.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s second expansion, The Siege of Paris, will release on August 12th. Set in Francia, this new adventure will set Eivor on a dangerous path full of questlines across the Frankish countryside, towards one of the most infamous conquest battles in Viking history. Players will get their hands on new weapons, abilities, gear, and skills to take on new enemy types. The Siege of Paris will also mark the return of Infiltration Missions, directly inherited from long-time, fan-favorite Black Box Missions. Here, players will have the liberty to choose the best way to eliminate their designated target. The Siege of Paris will be available for all Season Pass owners or as a separate purchase for $34.99 by all owners of the main game.
Starting Thursday, July 29th, players can celebrate Summer in the time limited Sigrblot Festival, a traditional Viking festival celebrating the start of the Raiding season. Until August 19th, various festive activities will be available in the Ravensthorpe settlement around the traditional bonfire, including:
- Flyting, Fight Tournament, and Dice Game mini-games
- Three new quests available
- Exclusive rewards including settlement decorations, customization items, and weapons. Notably, the one-handed sword Skrofnung can be acquired with Sigrblot tokens in the festival shop for a limited time before the festival ends
To experience the Sigrblot Festival, players must reach England and complete one of the first narrative arcs – either Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire – and have their settlement reach Level 2. An additional update is planned for later this season and will bring a new River Raids map pack, with destinations scattered along the rivers of Francia and Ireland.
