We're halfway through the summer. Some are lounging on the beach or hiking, taking a break from gaming. Others, on the contrary, use every moment to catch up with the latest games. Fortunately, August will offer a diverse set of games that accommodates some really interesting games.

What's Assassin's Creed: Valhalla Siege of Paris?

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla has been a major success. The combination of stealth adventures with Vikings universally appealed to the players. Ubisoft, however, announced that it does not intend to stop there, and the game will receive a lot of additions, moving the action to different places. We've already been to Ireland, so now it's time for France (again)!

Is Assassin's Creed: Valhalla Siege of Paris worth the money?

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla Siege of Paris is the second major expansion for the game. It is worth noting, however, that this is not a standalone add-on. So you need at the core game to enjoy the DLC. If you liked the original, you will definitely also like this expansion. This time, we will take part in one of the greatest battles in Viking history, the eponymous Siege of Paris. Eivor will go to the French city to infiltrate enemies and conquer the territories from within, and we will help him do it!
