Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris

Assassin's Creed Valhalla : The Siege of Paris, Eivor in the presence of Charles the Big Second expansion of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, The Siege of Paris (PS5 and PS4, € 24.99) will see us participate in the battle that took place at the gates of the capital of Kingdom of the Fran who Westerners. Eivor is in fact called by Sigfred to help him defeat the troops of Charles the Big, and the brave warrior of the Clan del Corvo agrees to carry out this new assignment.

There is a real risk that King Charles decides at some point to expand towards the English coasts, therefore stopping the French sovereign seems the best idea to avoid further clashes in the future. Moreover, a mysterious sect moves in his kingdom, the Bellatores Dei, which makes innocent people disappear by accusing them of worshiping the devil.

Characterized by a more contained map than Ireland of The Wrath of the Druids, this new expansion turns out to be shorter and less rich than expected, but with a greater focus on the plot and of the characters, very well hatched. Of course, some decisions of Eivor will leave you perplexed and you will not be given the opportunity to overturn them except in the final, further confirming the confusion that sometimes reigns among the authors of Assassin's Creed.

On the gameplay side, the news sees the '' introduction of assassination eventualities, i.e. situations that allow you to eliminate with ferocity but also in silence the main targets of the mission, as well as new skills and unlockable talents in the context of a balance that however leaves something to be desired: if you are in the endgame phase, the your Eivor will also be unbeatable in the land of France.
