CD Projekt RED Gives Monster-slaying Advice for AC: Valhalla

CD Projekt RED sent a nod to the creators of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla by providing witcher advice on how to defeat enemies in Wrath of the Druids.

Day after tomorrow will mark the launch of Wrath of Druids, the first major DLC for Assassin 's Creed: Valhalla. A few days ago, Ubisoft launched an ad campaign, advertising the expansion and one of the materials encouraged CD Projekt RED to send in a small joke.

A graphic showing Children of Danu, a new type of enemies that we will encounter in the DLC, appeared on the official Twitter account of the Assassin's Creed series. The account of The Witcher franchise posted a comment, giving some advice to Valhalla fans. They were warned that these enemies are immune to the Axii sign, but susceptinle to Igni, dimeritium bombs, and relic oil.

The advice is useless, as such techniques and items do not appear in AC Valhalla. The joke simply points out that the Children of Danu look a bit similar to the monster known as Leshen, which we had to face in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and would in fact be easier to defeat when using the aforementioned means.

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla was released in November, last year on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Google Stadia. Wrath of the Druids will be released this Thursday.

The second DLC, The Siege of Paris, is scheduled for release in August. These are the only expansions announced so far, but there are many indications that Ubisoft may also be preparing a third one. The publisher wants Valhalla to be supported longer than Assassin's Creed: Odyssey.
