Players will get to explore ancient Ireland in new Assassin's Creed game

A NEW expansion pack for the popular Assassin's Creed franchise will let players explore the beauty of ancient Ireland.

The Assassin's Creed Valhalla Season Pass is set to launch next year, and will include two epic expansions and a bonus quest, allowing players to explore ancient civilisations-- including Gaelic Ireland.

The Wrath of the Druids expansion will see gamers journey to ancient Ireland to "unravel the mysteries of an ancient druidic cult."

"Fight your way through haunted forests and dazzling landscapes while gaining influence among Gaelic kings," a description for the new game teases.
