Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids acts as a microcosm of the main game, complete with all the same successes and the same failures.
When Assassin’s Creed Valhalla first released, fans are aware of a game that bridges the gap between old and new. In the more brutal combination of the Viking -themed setting, it’s a happy if disagreeable The Assassin’s Creed. Now, pack in the DLC Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Anger at the Druids looking to build on the consequences of the main title.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Anger at the Druids is the first of the main expansion games in the main game. Leaving Britain, Eivor traveled to Ireland at the behest of their cousin Barid, who was now King of Dublin. However, our hero knows that power is not easily maintained, uniformity can be fleeting, and there is a sinful group pulling backs from behind.

If that sounds like the plot of the base game, no wonder. Annoyance of the Druids almost feels like a pocket sized version of chief Valhalla drama, complete with a plot about gaining the trust of the powerful, taking on a secret cult of villains, and building a settlement through resource management and exploration. However, many want Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Annoyance of the Druids there are missed companions in successes.
For starters, Annoyance of the Druids importing many busy British jobs to new locations in Ireland, albeit in different forms. Across Ireland, the player must open trading posts by eliminating enemies, tracking acts spread across the land, and raiding monasteries to obtain products to add buildings to each post. These sales posts can be used to further mobilize resources to build the city of Dublin, which in turn will open up a few more items to be used by Eivor.
However, Dublin lacks the same connectivity The British settlement of Ravensthorpe, a place where Eivor (and by connecting with the player) has an emotional link. While Ravensthorpe is a solid move in the main game, as it is satisfying to see the player’s home grow with each success, outside of getting the robbery not much is tying Eivor in Dublin from a panic plot. -aw. In the end, leaving Ireland feels more like a place full of resources to explore than a new location to explore on its own. The gameplay is still fun, but it lacks heart.
It’s probably Annoyance of the DruidsMain problem, because it spoils the deep Irish cultural history and unique scenery. Remember, for example, that the first named Irish character the player meets in the game is just drunk. Same, even if the plot is centered around Assassin’s Creed Valhalladruids, culture and mythology are never really explored outside as a successor to the Order of the Ancients, while the structure of the game of attracting kings and capturing fortifications left Ireland feeling more of a part of Britain than a location of its own. The specific side quests are very small, but not enough to stop the thought that this is something out of the ordinary.
Part of it is undoubtedly up to the core, like simple Royal Demand missions that add a bit to the experience. Players wouldn’t be surprised if there wasn’t enough room for doing missions, especially given that Valhalla proved himself capable of making new areas feel unique through North American’s excellent movement in the main game. It’s still fun to play, and the character -driven plot is just as involved in the political turmoil as the main game, but could be more.
Not all are stumbling blocks, however, but thanks and the minute-by-minute gameplay is even more enjoyable. When Annoyance of the Druids dives into the subject matter it dominates, through the tense battle against the druidic Children of Danu and a couple very good boss fights against mythical creatures like the puca; Annoyance of the Druids is the most Witcher that The Assassin’s Creed felt so far away, and it was all the better for it. It’s also a beautiful upbringing sometimes, even if repeating it in Ireland feels too close to Britain for comfort.
Leave it Annoyance of the Druids as a decent if not inspiring first major pack of DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Its really bright moments are worth playing, and those who enjoy the core loop of the gameplay that are the main game will be satisfied. However, elements such as gathering origins and generic side searches can really be cut to make way for a more diverse plot, to take advantage of Ireland and all of its history.
Assassins Creed Valhalla: Anger of the Druids released on 13 May 2021 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S / X. Screen Rant provided a PS5 download code for the purposes of this review.
