Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – Sigrblot Season Free Update

Celebrate Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Season 3, Sigrblot Season, with the Sigrblot Festival featuring new quests, and more. Enjoy the festivities, partake in all-new quests, and secure the first one-handed sword during the Sigrblot Festival, available from July 29 to August 19, 2021.

Additionally, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s second expansion, The Siege of Paris, launches on August 12, 2021. Set in Francia, this new adventure will set Eivor on a dangerous path full of gripping questlines across the Frankish countryside, towards one of the most infamous conquest battles in Viking history.

Players will be able to take Eivor on a Viking adventure to sack the famous city later this summer.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s first expansion, Wrath of Druids, launched in May 2021 after a short delay. That expansion sent players to Ireland to help Eivor’s cousin establish a trading network and secure his place as king of Dublin. The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla DLC also had a heavy mythological component, as players fought werewolves and druids with mystical powers, though those abilities were explained away as the result of hallucinations caused by poison. The Siege of Paris is currently the second and final paid DLC expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla; Ubisoft announced at E3, however, that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla would be getting post-launch content into the second year after its release, so there is still a chance a new paid DLC expansion could be announced.

Ubisoft officially announced that The Siege of Paris DLC will launch on August 12th, 2021. Unlike Wrath of Druids, The Siege of Paris appears to be a much more grounded adventure for Eivor. It has been confirmed that players  will go to the kingdom of Francis and infiltrate the city of Paris. Once there, Eivor will forge alliances and help bring down the city from the inside. Players can prepare for The Siege of Paris by downloading the newly released 1.3.0 update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, though a second download will be necessary once the DLC officially releases.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will also receive a free update this summer, which will contain the Sigrblot Festival, which will include new festival activities, cosmetics, and one-handed swords. Following the release of The Siege of Paris, there has been little information on future free updates and possibly paid DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. According to Ubisoft’s initial post-launch roadmap, at least one additional free event is planned for 2021. While Ubisoft has promised a second year of content for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, including surprises, it’s conceivable that much of the material for the second year will be rehashed from the first year’s free updates.

However, at least one big piece of fresh material is on the way. Ubisoft teased a new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla DLC at E3 by showing just a fiery gate. Some have interpreted this to mean that the legendary side of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be expanded with the addition of Muspelheim. In the meanwhile, The Siege of Paris offers far more realistic raiding adventures.
