Tomorrow, August 12, the Siege of Paris expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. On the eve of the launch, Ubisoft published a release trailer and gameplay demo to introduce the addon to the audience in more detail.
The first video is made in a cinematic format: King Charles started a war against scattered tribes in France in order to expand his country. The campaign began to threaten the Vikings, and Eivor will try to prevent Karl from reaching the possessions of his people. The main character goes to France, where he will try to find allies. One of them should be the leader of the Vikings Siegfried, but he is obsessed with the desire for revenge. And the war also gave rise to the plague, so Eivor will have to fear hordes of rats.
As for the gameplay demonstration, it makes it clear what kind of adventures users will encounter during the passage of the “Siege of Paris”. At the basic level, the gameplay remains the same: combat system, stealth mechanics, search for secrets, towers. The innovations include larger-scale sieges, the presence of rats, several types of enemies and weapons. From the latter, the video showed a scythe that deals damage in an area thanks to circular motions.
