The next major expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is only just around the corner; Ubisoft announced yesterday that The Siege of Paris will launch on Aug. 12, adding a large new story-driven adventure set in Francia.
Here’s a synopsis from Ubisoft teeing up its premise:
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s second expansion, The Siege of Paris, will release on 12th August. Set in Francia, this new adventure will set Eivor on a dangerous path full of gripping 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 by all owners of the main game.
To prepare for the expansion, players can now take part in the Sigrblot free update, which launches later this week, July 29.
Also launching on Aug. 12 is the “The Siege of Paris” music album, giving all fans the chance to fully enjoy the complete soundtrack. From today, they can discover “Hásæti”, the first track of the album composed by Stephanie Economou. A press release sent to Twinfinite explains that in this song, she wanted to evoke a sense of spirituality and depth in the music, and vocals felt like the right avenue to explore. The lyrics are in Old Norse, with “Hásæti” translating to “Seat of Honor.” Check it out below:
