Assassins Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids DLC review
The latest DLC for Assassins Creed Valhalla is out. This DLC for the newest entry of the Assassins Creed franchise was a breath of fresh air for the game and exciting stuff in it.
The synopsis of this DLC is:
“Explore the haunted wilds and beautiful landscapes of Ireland as you battle a druidic cult known as the Children of Danu. Conquer ring forts, master the art of smuggling, and gain the favor of Gaelic kings in a new open-world adventure.”
High Points of Assassins Creed Valhalla DLC
One of the best things about the Assassins Creed franchise is their deep-dive into the mythology of cultures and their additions to their games, and this DLC was no exception. One of my favorite additions, and that it’s a bit controversial were the appearance of werewolves in this DLC. They are formidable opponents to beat, but at the same time, they feel out of place in this franchise. There is an explanation about hallucinogens, but still, they think out of business.
The DLC is not very long. It took me four days to complete both the story and the achievements this DLC has to offer.
Visuals and Gameplay Experience
The map and scenery of Ireland on this DLC are gorgeous. The graphic doesn’t disappoint, and you can appreciate the beauty of Ireland during the end of the 9th century.
The main missions and side quests are still very similar to those of the main story, and there are a few new additions to this that will allow you to obtain new armor and weapons.
The main story of this DLC is simple and yet predictable. This, in a way, was a bit disappointing. Nothing new about the present was hinted at after this.
Besides weapons and armor, players can also obtain new abilities and skills to get by missions and leveling up.
Overall, Assassins Creed Valhalla was a fun DLC to play and a lot of stuff. It will be interesting if the next DLC (takes place in France) will bring to the historic franchise and the additions it may get to it.
