The update should only take up an extra 10.5GB of hard drive space, so make sure you have this ready to go!

A preliminary update is out there right now to download for yourself. Make sure to get it before the big day.

One-Handed Swords Added Before Siege of Paris Update

A much-requested feature has finally been added as part of the Sigrblot Festival. One-handed swords were initially left out of the game as it was believed Vikings would only ever use axes.

This is the last major gameplay update/content drop before the Siege of Paris expansion.

Release Date Confirmed in Patch Notes

In the most recent patch notes, Ubisoft revealed when we will see the next big DLC.

According to the patch notes, we are due to see the next DLC on August 12th this year.

What Is The Siege of Paris?

Valhalla's first DLC, the Wrath of the Druids, was brave and bold and took the game in a new direction. It took the player to Ireland and fully immersed us in the land with a new mythology and a great new story

The Siege of Paris seems to be offering a very similar experience, taking players to a whole new land to live a part of our shared history

As the name suggests, we can expect to see the rapidly advancing skyline of Paris from above and below as we uncover the new story underpinning it all.

Assassins Creed Valhalla Siege of Paris DLC Release Date

The Siege of Paris will arrive this week on August 12th.

Ubisoft's E3 Forward event took place two months and we saw it mentioned but didn't receive that release date. We instead saw it in patch notes, rather than receiving a trailer or much fanfare.

Features

In addition to a vast new region in Francia (modern-day France), the Siege of Paris will, of course, take place in and around the city of the same name.

There will be an entirely new storyline to complete, in which Eivor must seek to undermine the different factions in control of Paris to bring about its downfall.

There will be new Legendary gear to collect, and new quests and events to undertake. There will also be new kinds of enemies to test your mettle against.

We will update this page with any new information we glean as we get closer to the launch of Assassins Creed Valhalla's Siege of Paris DLC.
