According to an official Ubisoft news page, the Siege Of Paris expansion is set to arrive in Summer of this year. The post adds that “In the Siege Of Paris, players will have the chance to relive the most ambitious battle in Viking history with key historical figures of war-torn Frankia. During this key moment in history,”
“Players will infiltrate the fortified city of Paris and the River Seine under a prolonged siege, uncover enemy secrets, and form strategic alliances to safeguard their clan’s future,” it concludes.
The expansion will also feature what Ubisoft calls ‘black box missions’, where the player will be tasked with objectives and have complete free rein on how they choose to accomplish them.
Ubisoft has also said recently that year two of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will ‘surpise’ players. Chief financial officer Frédérick Duguet said the game should have “a very ambitious and surprising second year of content for the first time in the franchise’s history.”
Discover Ireland even used the title in a tourism video, which combined shots of in-game and real world landscapes to show off the country to potential visitors.
