Wrath of the Druids is the game’s first expansion, but not the last. This DLC will task players with exploring the enchanted wilds of Ireland as they go head-to-head against a fierce Druidic cult known as the Sons of Danu. Players will be able to conquer forts, become the best smuggler in all of Ireland, and win the illustrious favor of the Gaelic kings.
The next expansion after that will take players to Paris, although that will come much later. While any lag is disappointing, it’s a smart move on your part to buy yourself a bit more time to ensure a flawless (or flawless possible) launch. With many studies still under Work From Home orders due to COVID-19, the day to day has changed, so a little understanding goes a long way when making these kinds of decisions.
