When it comes to historical video games, Assassin’s Creed sits at the top of the genre. The most recent instalment in the saga, Valhalla, was set against the backdrop of a Norse themed universe.
As per usual, however, Ubisoft have decided to add some more content to the title in the form of the Wrath of Druids expansion.
So, here’s everything you need to know about Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, the Wrath of Druids, including the release date, contents and more.
Wrath of Druids’ release date
Thankfully avid AC fans won’t have long to wait for new content. Dropping on April 29, the precursor to the expansion is an event called Ostara Season.
Centering around the Ostara spring festival, players will have access to “exclusive narrative content and in-game events” from March 18 until April 8.

Importantly, in order to access the event players must have:
- Reached England.

Diving into Gaelic myths and folklores, they’ll need to fight their way through haunted forests and dazzling landscapes while gaining influence among Gaelic kings.”
