Assassin's Creed Valhalla developer Ubisoft has officially announced that the next major DLC expansion, The Siege of Paris, will release on August 12th. This is just a week from the date that had previously leaked, and given the proximity, there is every possibility that August 5th was the target previously. As the name of the DLC expansion implies, players will be able to take Eivor to explore Francia and take part in battles there against Charles the Fat.
"Set in Francia, this new adventure will set Eivor on a dangerous path full of gripping questlines across the Frankish countryside, towards one of the most infamous conquest battles in Viking history," Ubisoft's description of the new DLC expansion reads. "Players will get their hands on new weapons, abilities, gear, and skills to take on new enemy types. The Siege of Paris will also mark the return of Infiltration Missions, directly inherited from long-time, fan-favorite Black Box Missions. Here, players will have the liberty to choose the best way to eliminate their designated target."
