Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids Ireland Expansion Lands in April

Ubisoft Montreal Ireland DLC April 29 release date Assassins Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids expansion Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids expansion Video game news 2/9/21: Ubisoft biggest fiscal quarter, The Outer Worlds second expansion release window, The Callisto Protocol & Skybound.

It’s a day late to be really timely with the news, but Ubisoft has announced that its Ireland-set Assassin’s Creed Valhalla expansion, Wrath of the Druids, will land on April 29. This first expansion for Valhalla will bring the game’s heroine, Eivor, to Ireland where she will face new challenges from a cult named the Children of Danu. Eivor will track down members of the druidic cult while also taking a dive into Gaelic myths and folklore. The gameplay should stick along the same lines as the game itself, but it does open up an entirely new location for our friendly Vikings to travel to.

Aside from Wrath of the Druids, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also dropped some new content today. The Ostara Festival is occurring in Ravensthorpe and is delivering a few new challenges and games until it ends on April 8. The drinking, archery, and fighting mini-games will all make an appearance alongside three new quests that have Eivor hunting for eggs, fighting night spirits, or becoming the May Queen. Hopefully, she gets to wear one of those crazy flower crowns. There are also new settlement decorations and customization items available. Finally, there’s a Mastery Challenge coming later on. It’s a repeatable challenge mode that will bring a new master to the village to help you get better at combat.

Following Wrath of the Druids, we’ll have to wait a bit longer for the next expansion pack, The Siege of Paris. That is set to release sometime this summer and bring to life the most ambitious battle in Viking history. The expansion will task players with infiltrating Paris during a massive battle.
