We finally know just when we can expect Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s big expansion, Siege of Paris. Previously this past week, a page from Xbox, which had since been taken down, claimed the game would be launching on August 5, 2021. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, as it’s been noted to launch into the marketplace on August 12, 2021. This shred of news comes from the recent 1.3.0 update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
It’s been a waiting game for the upcoming Siege of Paris expansion, and fortunately, we know just how long of a wait we’ll need to endure. The announcement date came from the patch notes for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla 1.3.0 which came out today. However, Ubisoft noted that the second expansion will be coming out on August 12, 2021, requiring a download. We know that we’ll get our hands on some new in-game items such as weapons and gear with this expansion. Likewise, there are new enemies and the return of black box infiltration missions.
Meanwhile, the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla 1.3.0 update will be hitting the marketplace tomorrow, July 27, 2021. This update will add options for NPC leveling progression, adjustment to the Skill Tree, along with the standard tweaks or enhancements from the previous Wrath of the Druids expansion. Tomorrow you’ll be able to dive into all these options and enhancements starting at 8AM EST.
Since we now know just when we can get our hands on the upcoming Siege of Paris DLC expansion, it shouldn’t be long before even more details emerge. If you haven’t picked up Assassin’s Creed Valhalla yet, then you can do so for the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Google Stadia platforms.
