The first of two confirmed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla story expansions, Wrath of the Druids will see players travel to Ireland to uncover the mysteries of an ancient druidic cult.
Players will explore Gaelic myths and folklores as they venture through haunted forests and other new locations in search of members of the cult.
A second Assassin’s Creed Valhalla story expansion, The Siege of Paris, will retell the Viking invasion of France in 845 AD when it arrives in the summer of 2021.
Thursday’s announcement coincides with the launch of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Season 2, titled Ostara, which arrives with a new festival featuring fresh challenges and rewards until April 8.
It will include the following Easter-themed activities:
- Settlement decoration activity
- Drinking, archery, and fighting mini-games
- Three new character quests: Eivor can enjoy an Egg Hunt, the May-Queen celebration, and protect the settlement against night spirits
- Three new skills: Fearless Leaper lets Eivor land a mastered falling attack atop enemies, while the Raven’s Loot and Loot Food skills increase Eivor’s efficiency when at range or fighting close-up
- Exclusive rewards including settlement decorations and customisation items
Each Assassin’s Creed Valhalla season will last for three months and include in-game events, new settlement buildings and games modes.
Players must reach England and complete one of the first narrative arcs (Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire) to experience the Ostara festival.
Ubisoft said a new game mode building on the game’s core combat mechanics will be added later in the season when “a Master arrives at the settlement, inspiring Eivor to train and perfect challenges to become a Master.”
