Asassin’s Creed Valhalla is back for more. On May 13, Ubisoft will roll out Wrath of the Druids, the first paid downloadable satisfied expansion for its Vikings-inspired Valhalla game that will take you to 9th-century Ireland. You’re going to continue to play as Eivor — Valhalla’s protagonist — who journeys from England to Ireland after receiving a letter from the king. In reality it’s more like a king, provided there are lots of who dot the Irish landscape in what is a time of strife, clash, and war. But why is the king of Dublin writing to Eivor, a vikingr from the entire way up north? That’s a tiny spoiler you’ll discover for yourself — or just watch the video below.
To receive your hands on Wrath of the Druids, it is very important pick up the Season Pass for Murderer’s Creed Valhalla. That will get you access to two DLC expansions, including this one and The Siege of Paris that will find you taking the Viking war to Paris. Lastly, you’ll also get access to The Legend of Beowulf, an exclusive quest that was once also offered with make a choice preorders. Unfortunately, the Valhalla Season Pass is almost as expensive as the game itself on some platforms. It costs Rs. 1,999 on Epic Games Store for PC, Rs. 3,324 on Xbox One and Xbox Series S/ X, and Rs. 3,330 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. That’s… a lot.
Murderer’s Creed Valhalla Review: Quantity Over Quality
For your money, Ubisoft says you’ll get 18 more hours of Valhalla — 13 hours in main quests, and another five hours in side activities — with Wrath of the Druids. That’s a lot for an expansion, though it’s comprehensible provided the base game ran near to 90 hours. All over that time, you’ll help the newly crowned High King of Ireland Flann Sinna bring the land together under a unmarried rule. Meantime, you’ll increase your wealth by setting up trading ports with distant in a foreign country nations. And now that Ubisoft gets to tackle Irish mythology, that calls for druids — it’s literally in the title — along with legendary beasts that Eivor can fight and take down.
As you’ll tell, there is a lot to do here. I’ve only spent a couple of hours in Murderer’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids, which is why I am not going to deliver a judgement. But I will be able to tell you what it’s like — or you’ll watch me play Wrath of the Druids in the video above, whether that’s more to your liking. To receive started, it is very important have completed the first story arc you select in England. That means establishing an alliance with either Ledecestrescire or Grantebridgescire, which are the first two regions to be had to you upon Eivor’s arrival on the British isle. Once you’ve finished the first few missions after pledging allegiance, you’ll embark on your Irish journey.
Apart from Ubisoft recommends that you hit a minimum of power level 55 before you step foot in Ireland. That’s because the whole of Ireland has been set at power level 55 — unlike England, where the power level between one region and its neighbour can wildly differ at times. But for what it’s worth, I used to be below that really helpful power level and I managed just fine. Though yes, I should admit I played on a lower difficulty level as I’m far from good at Valhalla (or any of the recent Murderer’s Creed games, for that matter). To me, Wrath of the Druids feels like an early mid-game expansion, with Ubisoft wanting as many Valhalla players to spend more money on the game.
The maximum power level has been expanded with the arrival of Wrath of the Druids DLC, as it comes with three new major skills — Eye of the North, Bloodless Rage, and Intense Rage — whose purpose is that can assist you grow to be unfazed in battle. In case you are attacked while you are preparing to attack yourself, Eivor may not flinch anymore. That are supposed to let you land more blows in a fight though you’ll naturally want to retain a near eye on your health meter.
You’ll also make a choice to go from side to side between England and Ireland whether you like. After you speak to the new one-eyed trader Azar — you’ll only see him once you’ve the first Ledecestrescire or Grantebridgescire alliance in place — at the Ravensthrope docks to kick off your Irish expedition, Azar will ask you to lucid out a blockade on the river that runs by your English home. Once that’s done, Azar will set up an Irish commerce post at Ravensthrope. It’s that very building that is your gateway to Ireland and in turn, Murderer’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids expansion. Of class lesson, you’ll at all times use the world map in the menus to fast commute, but that isn’t as much fun.
Murderer’s Creed Valhalla was once already a massive game — it used the Viking home of Norway merely as a prologue, before throwing us into the thick of things with England. Eivor can even take short surreal trips to Asgard, thanks to Valka’s potions. It’s now thrown Ireland into the mix though it’s still bizarre to me how the Vikings and Ubisoft sailed correct by Scotland, which surprisingly is not a part of Valhalla DLC expansion plans at all. Instead, we will be able to be headed to the dressing capital in summer 2021. There is not any word on a new Murderer’s Creed game just yet, but Valhalla plans to retain you plenty engaged until then.
