After a French Content Creator gave accurate leaks in the past about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, he shared with us the details of a possible third DLC.
After scouring the game files for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in early May, Jonathan shared the maps of the game’s two planned expansions, ‘Wrath of the Druids’ and ‘Siege of Paris’. After a couple of weeks, when the first DLC was released, Jonathan’s leaked information about the map was proven to be almost entirely right, just like a few other times in the past. Jonathan has now shared the details of a third possible unannounced DLC which is in development right now.
Up until now, Ubisoft has only revealed two expansion packs on its roadmap for ‘Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’, which according to the PlayStation Store should both be released by 9th November 2021, or exactly one year after the game’s release i.e. 10th November 2021.
That doesn’t preclude the possibility of a third content expansion being in the works, perhaps for individual purchase or a second season pass.
Further diving into the files of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Jonathan uncovered three particularly revealing files named DLC_EXP1_Ireland, DLC_EXP2_Francia, and DLC_EXP3_Meteor. Very obviously, the first two refer to the ‘Wrath of the Druids’, which is set in Ireland and the ‘Siege of Paris’ is the unreleased second expansion that takes place in France.
As for the story of Meteor itself, Jonathan believes it is going to revolve around Norse Mythology and center around Muspelheim, or North Africa. There is a game file that contains the words “LocationWorldEntry_ACK_DLC_Muspelheim,” although Jonathan admits this might refer to removed or abandoned game content, there is a theory that in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, each of the Norse realms corresponds to a real world location and, as confirmed on Reddit by Darby McDevitt, the game’s narrative director, Muspelheim refers to “all of Northern Africa”
It is believed that meteor was not initially planned by Ubisoft, because information about it did not appear in the game’s files until after a content update at the end of March. This sudden change in plans by Ubisoft might be due to the record breaking success achieved by Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
