Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla will begin The Siege of Paris today

The next Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla expansion, which goes by the name of The Siege of Paris, will release sometime today. We’re not sure of exactly when, and it may even be available as of this writing, but it’s definitely set for launch sometime this calendar day.

Set in Francia, this new adventure will set Eivor on a dangerous path full of gripping questlines across the Frankish countryside towards one of the most infamous battles in Viking history. Players will get their hands on new weapons, abilities, gear, and skills to take on new enemy types. The Siege of Paris will also mark the return of Infiltration Missions, directly inherited from long-time, fan-favorite Black Box Missions. Here, players will have the liberty to choose the best way to eliminate their designated target.

Players will have access to the expansion after completing one of the two first narrative arcs available in England (Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire), which unlock just after they arrive from Norway. When in Ravensthorpe, Eivor will stumble upon visitors from Francia offering suspiciously generous presents and will then find their way to Francia. The suggested power level for Francia is 200, but there is no mandatory power level to play this expansion.

The Siege of Paris will be ‘free’ to download for all owners of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla‘s Season Pass. Others will be asked to pay a whopping $34.99. We’re assuming that price is in Canadian dollars.
