The Wrath of the Druids expansion was originally set for release on April 29 but will now launch two weeks later. The story will follow the main character, Eivor, to Ireland where he will encounter members of an ancient druidic cult, tracking and discovering their members.
Wrath of the Druids can be purchased as a standalone or players can also access the expansions through the Season Pass, which is available as part of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Gold, Ultimate, and Collector Editions. Later this year, another expansion titled The Siege of Paris is set to launch as well.
Elsewhere, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla‘s lead writer Darby McDevitt recently announced that he is departing Ubisoft. “After a decade of working with brilliant people, creating stories & characters for an incredible series, & interacting with our wonderful fans, I have decided to set forth on a new adventure…” wrote McDevitt on Twitter.
