Assassin’s Creed DLC details leak for Wrath of the Druids

Just when you thought your Viking adventures were over, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is gearing up for yet another chapter in Eivor’s sublime Norse saga.

We’ve known about Ubisoft’s plan for post-launch DLC for a while now. The first chunk of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla DLC, dubbed Wrath of the Druids, will take players to Ireland where they must explore its untamed wilds, investigate a mysterious cult, and curry favour with Gaelic kings. Originally slated for release at the end of this month, Wrath of the Druids will now have a release date of May 13th.

Ubisoft have yet to give Assassin’s Creed fans a deep dive into this first wedge of add-on content though a recently leaked trophy list (as well as first look screenshots) give us a good idea of what to expect.

If you’d rather not have the DLC spoiled for you then turn back now.

We already know Eivor will set sail west to the shores of Ireland. From the trophy list and a handful of screenshots we’re able to put together a better picture of what we’ll be doing in the Wrath of the Druids DLC.

Key plots points from the Ireland campaign include beating the “Trial of the Morrigan” while also gathering amber shards for a character named Deidre who presumably has some association with the druids faction.

Much like Norway and England, Ireland will be comprised of different regions or territories Eivor can raid and conquer. One trophy makes specific reference to a new type of activity called a “Royal Demand”, tasking players with fulfilling 10 of these to knab a bronze trophy. These will likely be side objectives to complete between main story quests.

Speaking of quests, Assassin’s Creed: Valhall will once again blend history and folklore as you tangle yourself in the legend of St. Patrick. Also, from one of leaked screenshots, we can see Eivor battling what looks to be a werewolf.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids is just a few weeks away now. This will later be followed by a second DLC arc that will us replaying events from the Viking Siege of Paris.

  1. Any mention of discovery mode?

    • No mention on exactly when we’ll see it though Discovery will be coming to Valhalla at some point in 2021.

  2. I have only recently started Valhalla on PS5 – my first Assassin’s Creed game since Unity. A lot has changed. Loving the exploration, story and setting but I just can’t get used to the new combat gameplay – after coming straight from finishing Demon’s Souls the combat in AC is so so poor in comparison.

    • Same issue I had. Despite having so many weapons/skills to equip the combat just feels too light and easy. Much preferred the combat from AC through to AC Revelations.
