If the stirring songs of Vikings and their exploits inspire passion within you, Ubisoft seems set to deliver one such tale in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the latest instalment within the venerable and long-standing franchise. With the release of a new story trailer, via the official Ubisoft YouTube channel, the developer and publisher combo frames the nascent journey of protagonist Eivor, a battle-scarred Viking raider, as they wend their way across the lands of old England in search of glory and riches through conquest and battle. Check it out below!
As previously reported, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to fuse the genre shift of third-person action-adventure games to open-world RPG, with Assassin’s Creed Origin and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, in interesting ways, placing a greater emphasis on stealth, tactics and the chicanery of subterfuge as options for Eivor in their saga throughout England, alongside the ability customisation, gear acquisition and skill trees of a modern RPG. Whether this landing is well-made is yet to be seen, but, personally, I’m curious to both play and exist within the world that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla paints!
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows, and Google Stadia on November 10th. It will also be a launch title for the Xbox Series X which also launches on November 10th, and on the PlayStation 5 which launches on November 12th in Australia and North America, and November 19th in Europe.
