AC Valhalla: The Siege of Paris

PLAYED ON: Xbox One S

(Non-Spoiler Review)



Like the previous DLC, Wrath of the Druids, The Siege of Paris slots seamlessly into the main game, playing out like one of Valhalla’s other arcs as Eivor travels to new lands to play kingmaker and secure an alliance in the region.


In this second DLC, Eivor aids the chief of the Elgring clan, Sigfred, and his niece Toka in their struggles against the Frankish king, Charles the Fat, and the Parisian nobility.


As the storyline is somewhat similar to the arcs in England, Siege of Paris’s best addition is reintroducing “Black Box” missions from previous Assassin’s Creed games. In this, you'll have to figure out and create an opportunity to assassinate your target. One-handed swords are here finally! You'll find 4 new awesome one-hand swords in Francia and new Scyth weapons as well.


Similarly to Wrath of the Druids DLC, there isn't any Assassin Templar storyline, except you get to access the Frankish Assassin Bureau in Paris.



CONCLUSION:


The Seige of Paris is an enjoyable 10-Hour DLC in an already massive game but it didn't keep me hooked to its storyline this time, and I certainly think it won't blow your minds as well. I had a lot of expectations when this DLC was going to be released. I was excited because this was one of the major events in Viking history and we get to play that storyline through Eivor's journey. As much as it is fun, in the end, I felt that it could've been better. To be honest, Assassin's Creed Odyssey had massive DLCs as compared to this game.
