Ubisoft has officially announced a new game from the Assassin’s Creed series with the subtitle Valhalla. He already makes it clear that this will be the Nordic Vikings and the Middle Ages. The topic will also affect Britain, where the Vikings undertook a number of raids and established settlements there.
Valhalla is so far the latest title since 2018, when the very successful Odyssey was released. It has added several new RPG elements for the first time and it looks like Ubisoft will stick to this direction. It is interesting that up to 15 studios from all over the world work together on the game.
The game will arrive on all possible platforms, including PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. Creative director Ashraf Ismail, who is known to the player for his contribution to Black Flag and Origins, will have his handwriting on the game.
The main character of the game will be Eivor - the leader of the Vikings, who will look at his 9th century England with his comrades-in-arms. You can look forward to looting, looting, murder and discovering a hitherto unknown world. Great historical names will not be missing, such as Alfred the Great of Wessex. Your decisions will influence how the story unfolds. As you will be an unwelcome guest in the new world, you will have to beware of betrayal, forging alliances, and so on.
You can choose both male and female characters with the possibility of fully customizable details - tattoos, hair, combat painting ... In your hand you will be able to hold long swords, shorter swords with shields, spears or even two-handed weapons, such as axes. Viking is an integral part of the ships that will take you to the desired locations and take away valuable prey on them.
The already mentioned RPG mechanics will receive several improvements so that you can constantly advance your character as a fighter and as a chief. You get new abilities and equipment for fights. As a leader, you must lead your village, expand your family and improve buildings.
We already know that the game will not have multiplayer or cooperation between players. The only online experience will be sharing the appearance of your character and using the appearance of other fighters. A matter of course in the game will be a bird companion, this time a raven (hello Ragnar Lothbrok) and the game will return in the present. Already on May 7, we can look forward to gameplay, which will reveal much more.
