Ubisoft supporting Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla into year 2 with more DLC

The second big piece of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, The Siege of Paris, got a release window at Ubisoft Forward E3 2021. Surprisingly, Ubisoft also committed to supporting Valhalla into its second year of release, a first for the series. As the title suggests, the upcoming expansion takes Eivor to 9th century West Francia and centers around the sacking of Paris and the fight against the Vikings and Charles III. However, other than a hint that Odin would be involved, the only upcoming DLC we know of for sure is the Discovery Tour.

What’s coming in the Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla roadmap for year 2?

We know only a couple of the things that’ll be added to Valhalla in the year 2 roadmap. The first will be the Discovery Tour which seems to give the player a chance to see how a normal citizen lived in the 9th century. The big takeaway is that this may point to Ubisoft releasing fewer games with longer support in the future. Assassin’s Creed has gone from a yearly franchise

Eivor is sure getting around for a Viking. First, they crossed from Norway into England. From there, they went to Ireland in the Wrath of the Druids DLC. Now, they’re fighting the Carolingians in Francia. The Siege of Paris will be the last major expansion for the game, adding a sizable landmass to an already colossal title. The big takeaway is that this may point to Ubisoft releasing fewer games with longer support in the future. Assassin’s Creed has gone from a yearly franchise to a longer development cycle which may mean Ubisoft is trying to get more bang for their buck as these games get more and more massive.

You can play Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – The Siege of Paris when it drops this summer. Stay tuned for more news about what’s coming to the game as it moves into its second year or support.
