    Wrath of the Druids is near perfect in its execution, a flawless combination of challenge and accessibility that paves the way for a glorious adventure into the darker side of Irish mythology and legend. Everything has been carefully packaged with incredible visuals, worthwhile new endeavors, and a cast of characters just as memorable as the original game.

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids is one of the series' best expansions. In its beautiful but sombre open world depiction of Ireland, it provides an intriguing story that combines history and folklore to great effect. A range of new weapons and armour sets help sweeten the deal, while more engaging combat scenarios keep you on your toes. If you're already a fan of Valhalla, this Emerald Isle adventure is very hard to fault.

    Wrath of the Druids is a solid expansion for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, surprisingly huge and well structured, but at the time quite self indulgent in terms of storytelling and a little bit unpolished. It brings an interesting variant gameplay loop and offers 15 hours of contents, so it's perfect for die hard fans of the main campaign.

    While Wrath of the Druids isn’t Assassin’s Creed at its most exciting, it’s certainly passable in a month as quiet as this. Burn a weekend burning druids and make the most of it all, before waiting to see when they'll get back to the actual plot. Seriously, I need closure on that ending, Ubisoft.

    It’s hard to call Wrath of the Druids essential, but those seeking to eke out yet more gameplay from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla would be wise to check it out. As I explored the countryside of Ireland, including iconic landmarks such as The Giant’s Causeway, I couldn’t help but stop to take screenshots due to the beauty of it all. And while the gameplay boils down to more of the same, it’s enjoyable spending yet more time in Eivor’s shoes, developing their skills even further, adding more gear to their repertoire and being the person that gets things done.

    If Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was as vast and interesting as many seasons of Game of Thrones, think of Wrath of the Druids as the forthcoming House of the Dragon spinoff. It’s not going to change anyone’s minds, but if you were still on board, it’s exciting to return to that world.

    Despite the prospect of discovering the verdant lands of Ireland, it's hard to really get excited after a dozen hours spent on Wrath of the Druids: this first expansion of Assassin's Creed Valhalla is content despite a handful of novelties to recycle the formula of the main adventure, which may quickly tire those who have already completed it. While waiting for The Siege of Paris, which we hope will be much more inspired, we will advise the conquerors to go about their business quietly, while waiting for better and less cloudy days.

    Very nice expansion. The story is interesting. I especially love Ciara and I wish she would sang more often. The items were really useless,Very nice expansion. The story is interesting. I especially love Ciara and I wish she would sang more often. The items were really useless, especially if you play this after you finished the game. And even if the level system had a couple new branches, I can't tell if that did anything to the character. The only item that was worth something, was a lance from a druid mission that comes only before the last part of the story. Small graphical glitches but nothing major. The music of Ciara is lovely. I give it 78%, Not extremely original but the story was fun. Expand

I like theThis is a great DLC to bring you right back into the world of Valhalla! Ireland is very cool and the story pulls you in right away. I like the new characters they bring into the grand story and the atmosphere with the lighting and fog is top notch on the PS5. I am always blown away with the ray tracing this system can produce. Why an 8 only...... the glitches. Characters getting stuck so you can't open chests in raids, then they get stuck and fall through the ground and their bodies are still moving half out, and you see this happen only 10% of the time but this should not be happening and it effects your game play. Overall, its a solid DLC and don't miss palying this......its awesome!!!! Expand

    Though it was fun to return to the Valhalla world, this DLC is much too similar to the main adventure. Ireland's landscape looks almostThough it was fun to return to the Valhalla world, this DLC is much too similar to the main adventure. Ireland's landscape looks almost identical to England, but with a few new baddies and challenges. Building trade posts and collecting goods for new weapons was enjoyable, but the amount of work to get the deeds for the posts versus the rewards are quite underwhelming. I enjoyed Wrath Of The Druids but it lacked any new excitement. Really hoping Paris is a much different landscape. Expand

Wrath of Druids is by any standard,A very bland and "by the numbers" expansion of a game that already sufferent from too much content. Wrath of Druids is by any standard, "fine". The story is competent, the world sufficient. But it's really just more of what we already had in the base game. It doesn't improve on anything, especially not the terribly broken loot system. It's a shame because the lackluster loot system undermines the game's entire reward structure so you really do end up playing just to mark those Ubisoft "Checkboxes". Expand
