In order to access the Siege of Paris DLC, you'll need to head to Ravensthorpe. Once there, you'll receive a letter from Randvi that informs you of a new visitor who wishes to speak with you, and a new quest will begin called Strangers Bearing Gifts. This is when you'll first meet Toka of the Elgring clan, who tells you about a growing threat in Francia, and spins tales of great riches to be found in this distant land. After you converse with her, a new guesthouse building will be constructed in the settlement. In this building, you'll find clan advisor Pierre, who you can speak to in order to initiate your journey to Francia and begin the expansion. 

If you're new to Assassin's Creed Valhalla, it's worth noting that you'll only be able to begin the expansion after completing one of the first two story arcs - either Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire. While there is no mandatory power level in the expansion, the recommended power level for Francia is 200. If you're at a considerably higher power level, the expansion will also adjust to your level, so you can still expect to enjoy a balanced experience in this new adventure.

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
