Game company Ubisoft has recently announced that video game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will finally get its first expansion, Wrath of the Druids tomorrow.
Wrath of the Druids will finally get released tomorrow, May 13, and will be the first major expansion of the game. This will be a new adventure for Eivor, which will take him/her to the bewitching and beautiful land of Ireland and unravel the mysteries of an ancient druidic cult, the Children of Danu. Enjoy checking out the Gaelic myths and folklore, go through haunted forests, view dazzling landscapes, and help the Gaelic Kings unify Ireland.
The story starts as Eivor is summoned to Ireland by their long-lost cousin Barid. Quickly they are drafted by the High–King of Ireland Flann Sinna to embark on a perilous journey and unite the warring factions. The intriguing but treacherous Celtic Ireland is a whole new region to explore, including three provinces and the city of Dublin. The expansion also features famous historical landmarks such as the Giant’s Causeway, Tara Hill, Black Pig’s Dyke, Ben Bulben and more.
Developed by Ubisoft Bordeaux, Wrath of the Druids brings new features and content to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla:
