Ubisoft has released a trailer for their newly announced next instalment in the Assassin’s Creed series, titled Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.
As the name suggests, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla takes place during the Dark Ages as Vikings started to venture into the unknown looking for new lands. You take on the role of Eivor, one such Viking looking to settle down in a new land called England. Of course, King Aelfred of Wessex isn’t too happy with these new arrivals and is willing to go to war to stop them from settling in England.
Just as with the recent Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, players will be able to play as either a male or female Eivor.
The game promises a dynamic and beautiful open world to explore and a whole bunch of new features not seen in previous Assassin’s Creed games. Along with spilling some blood, players will need to go on raids, grow their settlement and expand their influence.
According to the game’s Creative Director Ashraf Ismail, it won’t be easy to step into the well-worn boots of Eivor. “Being in Eivor’s boots as both a Viking raider and a clan leader, players will face the conflicts of establishing a new home while in the midst of a power struggle for control of England.”
The game will also feature three Editions each with their own goodies.
- The Gold Edition will include the base game and the Season Pass.
- The Ultimate Edition will include the base game, the Season Pass and the Ultimate Pack giving access to players to exclusive customization content: the Berserker Gear Pack, the Berserker Settlement Pack, the Berserker Longship Pack, along with a Set of Runes to improve weapons or gears.
- The Collector’s Edition will include the base game, the Season Pass, the Ultimate Pack, the high-end Ubicollectibles replica of Eivor and her Drakkar (height: 30cm), a Collector’s Case, a Steelbook® with a unique artwork, a numbered certificate of authenticity, a Viking Statuette of Eivor with his raven and Dane axe (height: 5cm), exclusive lithographs as well as a Selected Soundtrack of the game. The Collector’s Edition is available exclusively on the Ubisoft Store.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla will be releasing on the Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Google Stadia and PC later this year, and we can’t wait to swing our mighty Viking axe and spill some blood.
