Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will get long and extensive post-launch support in the form of paid DLC (expansions), a bonus mission available at launch, and free content. It is now standard practice for Ubisofr as they have done the same for AC origins and AC Odyssey.

The Season Pass includes all post-launch content – two expansions and the bonus mission.

Wrath of the Druids 1 expansion
In the first, you’ll explore the haunted wilderness and stunning scenery of Ireland as you embark on a battle against a cult of druids known as the Children of Danu. This new open-world adventure also features conquering ring forts, smuggling missions and more.

You will be able to experience the infiltration of Paris firsthand, forge alliances within its walls and deliver a shattering blow to this empire.

The Legend of Beowulf Bonus Mission
A bonus mission will allow you to explore The Legend of Beowulf. As legend has it, a mysterious beast is ravaging the countryside and it’s up to you to find it and reveal the secrets of England’s first great epic. This mission is available with the launch of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla!

Assassin's Creed Valhalla Post-Launch Content Plans

I have to admit I was worried about how I will manage to profit and cover both Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Cyberpunk 2077 both games are expected to launch within a week. Now with the Cyberpunk 2077 December Delay I will have plenty of time to cover both titles properly and with the help of my friend and colleague Manfred for Valhalla.

How excited are you about the latest addition to the Assassin’s Creed franchise? How do you plan to spend your playtime with Valhalla (weird pun, not planned!)?
