Assassin’s Creed is a beloved franchise spanning various games that take place in unique time periods throughout history. These games allow players to experience the feeling of living through times of hardship and war. Recently Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was announced revealing a Viking theme!
BUILD YOUR OWN VIKING LEGEND
Become Eivor, a mighty Viking raider, and lead your clan from the harsh shores of Norway to a new home amid the lush farmlands of ninth-century England. Explore a beautiful, mysterious open world where you’ll face brutal enemies, raid fortresses, build your clan’s new settlement, and forge alliances to win glory and earn a place in Valhalla.
England in the age of the Vikings is a fractured nation of petty lords and warring kingdoms. Beneath the chaos lies a rich and untamed land waiting for a new conqueror. Will it be you? – Ubisoft
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla doesn’t have much information out right now but from their website, we know the following:
- You’ll be able to lead raids by commanding a group of warriors and launch surprise attacks.
- With the RPG mechanics of Assassin’s Creed, you’ll be able to make your own warrior by dedicating talent points into specific aspects.
- You’ll get a settlement that you can customize to make it your own.
- You can create your own warband of Vikings to share online and even trade units between friends online.
Despite the original games focusing on stealth missions, this new gameplay style is a warm welcome to many. We’ve seen such positive responses to other Viking games such as God of War and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice so this will no doubt gain tremendous hype. The only concern is whether or not Ubisoft will be able to live up to the hype and deliver gamers what is promised. They have had a troublesome past with other Assassin’s Creed games.
Only time will tell!
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available for pre-order and will be available Holiday 2020. You can find additional information on Ubisoft’s website!
