The new Siege of Paris DLC in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has numerous choices and decisions to make along the way, including who lives, who dies, who keeps power and who is forced out along the way. But how many of these actually have a lasting impact, and how many are just for flavour? We’ll lay out everything that can happen in our full choices guide below.
Choices in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Siege of Paris DLC
There’s several choices to make across the course of the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Siege of Paris DLC expansion, with a range of options and some with more meaningful consequences than others. However, it’s worth mentioning that most choices in the Siege of Paris don’t actually have lasting consequences, and none of them impact outside of the Siege of Paris expansion itself. We’ll go through some of the more major choices in our following guide, with consequences listed. Obviously there’ll be some spoilers involved, but we’ll try to keep those to a minimum.
Take the King’s Money/Charles Cannot Be Trusted/You Lead This Army
In the wake of the actual Siege of Paris itself, Eivor is present at negotiations between Sigfred and Charles, the latter of which offers a lot of Silver for a truce. You can tell Sigfred to either take the money, deny it, or leave it to him.
It actually makes no difference either way. Whatever you pick, Sigfred takes the money and accepts the truce, while Odo is outraged by what he views as his king’s capitulation.
You May Have the Boy/I Will Not Hand Over the Boy
This one comes down to whether you will agree to give Bernard to Charles the Fat during a negotiation. This is a choice without any real long-term consequences. Without spoiling, circumstances will change so that either way, the deal cannot be carried out properly. All it alters is a couple of moments of select dialogue.
This is No Way to Find Peace/Fine, I Will Kill You
Later on when speaking with Sigfred, Eivor has to make a decision of whether to accept his offer of a Holmgang, or duel to the death. We’ve actually made a specific guide about the consequences and specifics of this choice, which you should check out for more details.
I Will Kill Charles/I Promise Nothing
While speaking with Count Odo, he asks Eivor to kill Charles the Fat, essentially giving him a clear path to power which he will use to make peace with the Elgring Clan and the Norse. Eivor doesn’t have to take this deal though.
It changes a small amount of dialogue later on. This choice doesn’t actually commit you to taking one path or another when it comes to Charles himself, but it does change a few lines spoken by Odo after killing or sparing him. Speaking of which…
Charles the Fat
Finally, there’s the decision about whether you kill or spare the King, which is done in gameplay rather than dialogue. Like with Sigfred, we’ve put together a full guide on how to spare or kill Charles, as sparing him is a puzzle that the player has to solve.
As you can see, many of the choices here are basically of-the-moment, and don’t have a huge amount of lasting impact. However, you can always use them as a chance for a roleplay, essentially reflecting your perception of Eivor and what they would pick.
Of course, there’s plenty more in the Siege of Paris beyond just the choices you make. Find out how to find all the optional Frankish Noble boss fights, or check out where to get all the armour in the Siege of Paris expansion!
