Now, they are going even bigger with the Siege of Paris DLC. Here's what you should know about it before its release.
Latest - Siege of Paris now available!
Siege of Paris is now available to download on all platforms. Jump into the brand new expansion and explore a whole new land and gameplay arc.
The Siege of Paris update is fairly reasonable in size, only taking up around 10.5GB of extra hard drive space. This should also mean the download time is fairly quick too!
One-Handed Swords Added Ahead of Siege of Paris DLC
A highly requested fan feature has come to Assassin's Creed Valhalla ahead of the Siege of Paris update in mid-August.
The game controversially left out one-handed swords as a weapon as they believed in Viking culture, only axes would be used. This update comes as part of the Sigrblot Festival event.
Release Date Confirmed
New patch notes dropped ahead of a big update on July 27th. In this, they revealed some plans for future content and also announced the release date for the next big DLC.
On August 12th, we will finally see The Siege of Paris go live.

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.
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
The Assassin's Creed Valhalla roadmap indicates that the Siege of Paris was slated to launch in the Summer 2021 window.
Luckily, we now know it will release on August 12th
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.
