Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Siege of Paris Release Date Revealed


UBISOFT has today announced the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Siege of Paris release date. The second major expansion is set around the events of the late 9th century Viking Siege of Paris and will take Eivor to Francia and up the River Seine to conquer new lands and eat a couple of frogs and snails along the way.

Last week we covered the Siege of Paris trophy list leak, which you can read all about here.

Also announced is the Sigrblot Season Free Update which kicks off later this week, offering players new flyting, a fight tournament and Orlog dice mini-games. There will also be three new quests, and exclusive rewards including settlement decorations, customisation items and weapons. Notably, the one-handed sword Skrofnung can be acquired with Sigrblot tokens in the festival shop for a limited time.

Players can access the free Sigrblot festival once they have unlocked the Ravensthorpe village in the main Assassin’s Creed Valhalla story.

Check out the new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Sigrblot Season Free Update trailer below:

 

From 29th July to 19th August, take part in the Sigrblot Festival, marking the beginning of the Raiding Season with a large bonfire at the center of the settlement for communal offerings to the gods. New quests, exclusive rewards and even… one-handed swords await you.

That’s right. One-handed swords!

If you stayed for the second half of the trailer, then you will have also seen what’s planned for the rest of the year in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The Siege of Paris release date is August 13, while a new River Raids map pack will also launch later in the year featuring rivers from both Francia and Ireland.

The “The Siege of Paris” music album will  launch alongside the expansion, giving all fans the chance to fully enjoy the complete soundtrack. From today, you can discover “Hásæti”, the first track of the album composed by Stephanie Economou. With this song, she wanted to evoke a sense of spirituality and depth in the music and vocals felt like the right avenue to explore. The lyrics are in Old Norse, with “Hásæti” translating to “Seat of Honor.” Click here to listen the single!

The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Siege of Paris release date is August 13, 2021. For more information, head to the official website.
