Ubisoft today announced its extensive post-launch plan for the upcoming video game Assassin's Creed Valhalla. In addition to a Season Pass with two major narrative DLC expansions called Wrath of the Druids and The Siege of Paris, Ubisoft confirmed that the title will also receive free seasonal content like in-game events, new settlement buildings, and more.
"With the Season Pass, players will discover new territories and stories through two major expansions and an exclusive quest," today's announcement reads in part. "Once available, expansions will be accessible early from within the structure of the main game, providing a meaningful story that adds to Valhalla’s rich open world. In addition, all players will enjoy new free content through Seasons, with each Season lasting three months – Season 1 will launch in December 2020, extending the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla experience post-launch."
