By analyzing game files and updates to them, fans are often able to uncover information about the developers' future plans. One such discoverer is the French youtuber j0nathanmwho dug up references in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, suggesting that in the upcoming DLC we will visit Muspelheim. In Norse mythology, it's a realm of fire, inhabited by the Giants and ruled by Surtr. The land appeared in the game's concept artwork, but was not available in the base campaign.
J0nathanm warns that the mention may be a remnant of abandoned ideas. However, there are good chances that the location will really appear in one of the upcoming expansions. In the base game we could visit the mythical lands of Asgard and Jotunheim, so Muspelheim may play a similar role in one of the expansions.
The first DLC, Wrath of the Druids, will be released on May 13, and the second, The Siege of Paris, is expected in August. Earlier, j0nathanm dug into the game's files to find information suggesting that a third, as yet undisclosed expansion is planned, currently known as Meteor. It is speculated that the DLC will take us to North America, offering a much larger map than the campaign section of Valhalla which took place on this continent.
It is worth noting that the same youtuber recently reported that Ubisoft suspended work on Assassin's Creed: Project Richard in order to fully concentrate on the third DLC for AC Valhalla. This game proved to be extremely popular and in February the publisher declared that its fans can expect longer support and more new content than in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey.
AC: Valhalla was released in November last year on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 and PS5 and Google Stadia.
