In addition to the new region – which features such landmarks as the Hill of Tara, the Ben Bulben rock formation, and the Giant’s Causeway – Wrath of the Druids adds new abilities, skills, and weapons to Eivor’s arsenal. As Eivor battles the Children of Danu, along with new Irish enemy factions (not to mention more than a few mythical creatures), players can wield (and dual-wield) sickles in combat, and deploy new abilities, including smoke-bomb arrows and Irish hounds that can be summoned to attack enemies.
When not fighting shadowy enemies or exploring Ireland’s natural beauty (and haunted forests), players can use raided resources to build and upgrade a network of trading posts, with the eventual goal of dominating Ireland’s trade routes and building Dublin up as the capital of Irish commerce. Wrath of the Druids is connected to the main campaign, doesn’t require a specific power level, and unlocks once players have arrived in England and completed either the Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire arcs. There’s a whole new land of mystery and adventure to explore, so load up the longship and get ready to see what happens when druids and Vikings clash.
Wrath of the Druids is available through the Season Pass or as a separate purchase, and is included with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Gold and Ultimate Editions. The Gold Edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is currently 33% off on sale until May 17.
