The next new content drop, and the first major DLC expansion, for Assassin's Creed Valhalla is almost here.
Players will soon be heading to Ireland to uncover the secrets of an ancient cult. Here is everything we know so far!
LATEST - Season Pass OR Standalone
Like with any major game, Assassin's Creed Valhalla has a Season Pass that offers all of it's major paid expansions at a discounted price. However, is Assassin's Creed Valhalla's Season Pass going to be worth the Wrath of the Druids DLC?
We think it definitely will be. Valhalla only has two major DLC expansions coming, with a lot of its' content already being added for free in numerous title updates.
The Wrath of the Druids DLC is priced at $USD 24.99 and the Season Pass is $USD 39.99. This means, at the very least you're saving yourself $USD 9.98 if the "Siege of Paris" DLC is priced the same.
Both of these promise to offer new locations, enemies, weapon, armour, and branching narratives.
