In our Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Siege of Paris review content, we take a closer look at the game’s newly released expansion.
Greetings to everyone after a short break. As you know, Ubisoft said that it will release 2 downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. We reviewed the first of these, the Wrath of the Druids expansion pack, and published it on our site. Now, we have prepared an article about the 2nd and the new addition package Siege of Paris. If you wish, let’s move on to our review without further ado:
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Siege of Paris review
What are the differences between the Wrath of the Druids and Siege of Paris expansions?
First of all, the only thing we have to do to enter the Siege of Paris expansion package has been greatly reduced. When we wanted to enter the previous add-on package, we had to perform a series of tasks and how we could access the add-on package was not so clearly stated. However, you do not need help or research to enter the Siege of Paris expansion pack. Because as soon as you enter the game, they told you exactly what you should do. In this way, you can easily enter the Siege of Paris.
Another point I should mention is that we are encountering a much more gloomy atmosphere in the Siege of Paris. As for the map size, the two expansion pack maps are close to each other. Of course, I’m talking about size here. As a matter of fact, there is a lot of content in both add-on packages to keep you entertained. In Siege of Paris, a feature that we all miss has also returned, a feature that many of us have longed for for years. Yes, assassination missions are back with this expansion.
As you know, the last few Assassin’s Creed games were out of line and had RPG elements. So far, he has not broken this line. But it looks like he used the Siege of Paris expansion pack to try something new. The producers have done a good job of immersing you in the beginning of the game, both with its dark atmosphere and the sudden start of events. At this point, I think it’s one step further from Wrath of the Druids. However, this does not mean that Siege of Paris is a completely different experience. Because it basically has many similarities with the previous expansion pack, Wrath of the Druids. Let’s take a brief look at the story of the additional package.
Last Destination France
Yes, our adventure to France begins very spontaneously, as a matter of fact. As soon as you enter the game, a letter appears on our screen. He says two people called us and we have to go to that location. We are going to the base with strength. At the place we arrive, two characters we have never seen before, Toka and Pierre, come to us and demand support from us. Of course, our helpful Eivor does not refuse the offer, our people agree, they say it is customary and go to give a banquet. The day after the feast, we set out for France. Along the way, we see that quite a few events have taken place here, and our people are having another feast in France before they fully grasp what’s going on. However, things don’t always go the way we want, unfortunately, that’s what happens here as well, and we are suddenly attacked by the enemy. After pushing back the enemies, we naturally need to avenge this. This is how our story begins.
In fact, there is no need to mention the gameplay part, because the difference between the main game and Wrath of the Druids is almost negligible. Again, the game welcomes us with classic missions and mechanics. However, it should be noted that we can encounter items that we did not encounter in the main game in the additional package. Other than that, as I said, it’s exactly the same as the main game and the previous add-on, the only difference is the new maps and locations.
We said assassination missions, the assassination missions we all faced while playing previous Assassin’s Creed games. Here they are, making a beautiful comeback in the Siege of Paris. This time, instead of naming such missions as black box, Ubisoft preferred to call it Infiltration. But what changes is only the name. Otherwise, in general, it is no different from the assassination missions that we all once loved. There are 5 assassination missions in total in the additional package. You can unlock them by advancing in the story. Each mission has different objectives and locations. Frankly, I can say that the most remarkable feature of the add-on package is these assassination missions. Considering that Siege of Paris is an additional package, I think it is quite enough. Also, I personally think that the makers will bring the continuation of this in the next Assassin’s Creed game. If, like me, you missed those old Assassin’s Creed games that were linear, this will satisfy your longing a little bit. However, I still think that the difference between the previous expansion pack is the assassination missions and the dialogues, it will leave people undecided whether to buy it or not. Because the only thing that makes Siege of Paris superior to Wrath of the Druids is these 5 assassination missions. Otherwise, the only visible differences between the two expansion packs are the map and dialogs. Because as we know, the tasks are; To take a task that we are used to from character A, which we have done a similar one before, and to complete it. Other than that, I didn’t notice any incredible difference.
Is Siege of Paris an expansion worth getting?
I would like to answer this question both yes and no. If you like Assassin’s Creed’s recent RPG line, if you have finished the main game and the previous expansion pack and want to spend a few more hours in the game’s universe, I suggest you take a look at this expansion pack. However, if you are not satisfied with the Assassin’s Creed games that have been released recently, if you do not like Wrath of the Druids, I think this additional package will not satisfy you. If you are someone who does not like the gameplay mechanics of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in general, I think this additional package is not suitable for you. Because the only feature that stands out in this additional package five assassination missions. Apart from that, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla we know. The only difference is a new map, new items and new dialogs. If you ask my personal opinion, if we consider our current economy and game prices, the price of the additional package seems a bit too much for me compared to the content it offers. Let’s see if the next Assassin’s Creed game that Ubisoft will release will be a new beginning or will it continue from the line we have started to get used to. Until then, stay cool!
