The Siege of Paris DLC continues this story all the way to Paris, here's what you should know about it.
Latest - Possible Release Date Leaked
Over on Twitter, a possible release date was revealed due to an error in the Xbox store. Things may not be as they seem here though.
In a follow-up tweet, they suggested this was merely a placeholder until something new comes along. We'll have to wait to see if that's the case.

Assassin's Creed Infinity Announced
In some rather odd news, the Assassin's Creed is being tied together as one large, ever-expanding game. This means that whatever we got from the Siege of Paris will likely play into this story.
This need to tie them together will cement a new way of storytelling in the future and should actively change some of what we already know.
Release Date Not Announced at Ubisoft Forward
Surprisingly, we didn't see a release date announcement at Ubisoft Forward this month.
This could mean they aren't quite ready to commit to a date just yet.
Free Mastery Challenge DLC Available Now
Right before the main portion of E3 2021 was due to kick-off, we received an update on some free content. The Assassin's Creed Twitter account announced the free Mastery Challenge DLC would be available from June 15th.
In a video released alongside the announcement, it's explained that these challenges will test your Combat, Range and Stealth skills.
Completing the challenges will help you hone your skills and unlock exclusive rewards. There's also a whole story arc to go along with the challenges surrounding a mysterious meteor that has crashed into the English countryside.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Siege of Paris DLC Release Date
We don't, as yet, have a confirmed release date for the Siege of Paris.
The Assassin's Creed Valhalla roadmap indicates that the Siege of Paris was slated to launch in the Summer 2021 window.
While it is entirely possible that it does release in that window, considering Wrath of Druids was delayed from April 29 to May 13, the Siege of Paris may face a similar delay.
Setting and Story
As you may have gathered, the Siege of Paris will see players venturing to the kingdom of Frankia (modern-day France) to raid and pillage that famous city. This is something that actually happened, with Viking raiders sailing up the river Seine.
In Assassin's Creed Valhalla's take on the events, players will contend with the forces of the cruel Emperor Charles the Fat, a member of the Carolingian dynasty, and great-great-grandson of the legendary Charlemagne himself.
In reality, the siege lasted a year and had many dramatic twists and turns, and should make fantastic fodder for Eivor's adventures.
Along with, of course, a brand new map, we know that there will be new activities for Eivor to engage with.
If the mould set by Wrath of the Druids is anything to go by, then there will be new enemies to combat, new secrets to unlock, and new legendary gear to find.
Details are still relatively scarce, but as soon as we know more, we will update this page with the latest Siege of Paris news.
