Vikings have joined the Assassin’s Creed as the successor to 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey would feature Vikings at the ninth-century Great Britain who battles against the King Aelfred and his kingdoms.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is following the steps of Assassin’s Creed’s recent editions like Origins and Odyssey, in which the game has been transformed into full-fledged role-playing. Like, the previous installment in Assassin’s Creed’s, Ubisoft allowed their players to opt between any male or female protagonist.
The first trailer for the upcoming video game has just dropped, and the trailer basically laid everything out. The trailer also hinted at the possible release date for the game, and it might arrive by late 2020. The probable reason why the studio hasn’t provided the exact time might be the uncertainty in the launch date of upcoming next-gen consoles—PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The studio might be working on to enhance Valhalla based on the next-gen gaming consoles.
Story & Gameplay
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla takes place in ninth-century England during the Vikings invasion across Anglo-Saxon medieval kingdoms in the country. A player assumes the role of Eivor, who commands the clan after the death of his father. Apart from Eivor, a player can choose siblings, either Alexios or Kassandra, to play as the main character.
The player will have a raven companion to support them throughout the game, just like in previous games. They can also modify the appearance of their character, including beard and tattoos. They can literally customize the weapons and gear—allowing them to fight antagonist, King Aelfred, on their easiness and comfort. Ubisoft also mentioned that the game would feature raids—the prime ability of Vikings—that will be more action-packed and brutal among all Assassin’s Creed games, for that matter.
As of now, the studio has already placed the game for pre-order on their website and has categorized the game into three editions. The Gold Edition is available at $99.99, the Ultimate Edition is available at $119.99, whereas the most sophisticated Collector’s Edition is available for $199.99.
