The upcoming Wraith of the Druids Expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been hit with a two week delay. Originally set for April 29, it’s now aiming for a May 13 release.
News is scarce as to why Wraith of the Druids is getting this short delay, and what exactly will be done with the additional two weeks. On the Assassin’s Creed Twitter account, the team say it is to “deliver a more refined experience”. They also say the team is working on an article to explain the development process, likely shedding some light on why we’ll have to wait a little longer for this expansion.

Fan reaction to this news is mixed, with many in the replies complaining of bugs persisting in the base game five months after launch. This DLC now comes just a little after the half year anniversary of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
There’s been no official announcement on whether or not this delay affects the release date for Valhalla’s second expansion, The Siege of Paris. This second DLC is currently scheduled for Summer 2021 release date, with nothing more specific than that so far.
Wraith of the Druids is the first major expansion coming to Valhalla, and takes the story to Ireland. In a recent interview with TheGamer, narrative director Hugo Sahuquet explained how Ubisoft did its homework for the new setting. From what Sahuquet revealed, it appears as if the story will focus less on conflicts between the Vikings and the Irish, with Vikings frequently being hired as mercenaries by the King of Ireland at the time of the expansion. As Sahuquet explains, there was less of a focus on conquering and more so on operating businesses within Ireland. Taking this historical inspiration, it appears as if this DLC will be quite different from the base game.
Wraith of the Druids is set to launch May 13 across PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Stadia and PC. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released November 10, 2020
