After retiring our trusty PS4 shortly after our original Assassin’s Creed Valhalla review, we found ourselves picking up our Viking adventures on the next generation once more. While the PS5 version didn’t immediately blow us out of the water, as the game still clearly showed its last-gen foundation, we did enjoy the upgrade, allowing us to enjoy the massive adventure even more. It had been a while since we last booted up the game, and after going through several hundreds of pop-ups of new content and random stuff, we found ourselves on route towards Francia, once again requiring the Wolf-Kissed to crack some skulls. As most of the content is ‘more of the same’, we will be keeping things fairly short for this one.

Let’s start off by saying that The Siege of Paris suggests you have a power level of around 200 to start playing it. We can say that it is not really required, but it’s probably more fun to have reached the endgame content in the base game first, before actually diving into this DLC. Experienced players may find themselves in Francia sooner; as they will probably care little about the power level requirements. If you tend to struggle with the base content, at a lower power level, it might be best to level up a bit more before you delve into this portion of the game. Nonetheless, you’ll get a fairly meaty part of DLC to plow through, which can take somewhere between 8 to 12 hours to finish.

You’ll get a new story to experience, new gear to unlock, and new battles to experience. The latter is quite interesting with a few of the new weapons, but it doesn’t really change things all that much. Proper assassination missions are made available again here, where you can opt for different approaches to kill your target(s), but that’s just classic AC gameplay being reinstated. Other than that, you see that the game draws some inspiration from another plague-infested title, which is a nice variation of the base gameplay, but also feels like a gimmick, rather than a core mechanic.


Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris is a fairly beefy expansion and will certainly please fans of the game, but it doesn’t really offer that much innovative content. Sure, some new (and old) items were added, and there is a proper story for you to enjoy, but it’s somewhat more of the same we experienced throughout the game’s base campaign. Again, those that still actively play the game, or simply want more content, will have around ten hours of additional content to plow through. Those that felt the base game was long enough, and have had their fill of the Valhalla experience, will find nothing really new to entice them into investing even more hours into the game. All in all The Siege of Paris is a good expansion.
