Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris DLC will launch this summer

The next Assassin’s Creed Valhalla expansion, The Siege of Paris, will launch for all platforms this summer on an unspecified date. Valhalla will also receive DLC support well into its second year.

This news comes by way of the Ubisoft Forward event at E3 2021, which featured lots of new details on the future of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The game is getting both some short- and long-term updates.

The Siege of Paris will include new weapons, abilities, and gear, plus additional enemies to fight. In this expansion, players will be sent to — you guessed it — Paris, where the main character, Eivor, will come across “key historical figures.” Those who own Valhalla’s season pass will gain access to The Siege of Paris expansion at no additional cost. Or, it can be purchased individually without the season pass.

During the presentation, Karen Lee, Ubisoft Montreal’s senior community developer, said: “While this year will be a very active year for the game, we’re already working on more expansions for next year. Something tells me that Eivor is not done with Odin yet.” This marks the first time an Assassin’s Creed game will get DLC in its second year, as Ubisoft shifts away from annually releasing core games in the series.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launched in 2020 and is the most successful game in the series. It’s unclear when the next mainline Assassin’s Creed game will launch, but players will have plenty to enjoy until then thanks to Valhalla’s post-launch support.

How to pre-order Assassin’s Creed Mirage: retailers, editions, and bonuses

The next Assassin's Creed is fast approaching, but this one isn't quite like the last few we've had. Rather than follow the open-world, western RPG style that Origins kicked off, Assassin's Creed Mirage is taking things back to basics in a lot of ways. It will be a more focused, story-heavy game that takes place primarily in just one city and will only last around 20 hours instead of up to 200. The focus once again is on stealth and using your skills to assassinate targets, as well as your parkour and tools.

Just because Assassin's Creed Mirage was built off of what was first intended to be DLC for Valhalla, that doesn't mean it isn't going to have just as much care and attention put into it as any other Ubisoft title. In line with this, there are three individual editions of the game already up for pre-order to pick from. Whether you've been with the brotherhood since the inception of the hidden blade or jumped in when RPG mechanics and loot were brought onboard, there's a lot of content between the different editions to choose between. Here's all you need to know.

After a weekend of confusion, Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin's Creed Mirage does not currently have an Adults Only rating. The publisher chalks the issue up to a mistake and reaffirms that the game will not feature gambling, as an Xbox listing indicated.

Following Saturday's Ubisoft Forward stream, fans noticed that the Xbox store page for Assassin's Creed Mirage had an Adults Only rating attached to it. The rating came with some standard warnings, noting the game had intense violence, partial nudity, and more. What really caught players' attention was the inclusion of "Real Gambling" in the rating, which seemed to be what earned the game its AO rating.
