Always bringing something new to the table, Ubisoft’s best-selling game franchise – Assassin’s Creed – is set to release towards the end of 2020, the exact release date is still unknown. The new game is called Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in which fans and gamers across the world will experience a brutal Viking quest for the first time ever on an Assassin’s Creed game.
Assassin’s Creed was first released way back in 2007, and has gone through numerous iterations ever since, with stories taking players through different characters in a vast number of environments – from Ezio’s journeys across the Italian landscape to 18th century America to the historical backdrops of Greece around 430 BC. Now, in 2020, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will take the players on an all new adventure set around ninth century A.D. against the open-world backdrop of England’s Dark Ages.
Players can choose to be a male or female version of Elvior, the plot’s protagonist who is a Viking raider, determined to protect the clan she/he leads – who were driven away from their home in Norway across the icy North Sea – against unjust kingdoms and royals of different parts of England. Rather than a classic stealth game play approach, the reveal trailer, however, shows us the RPG-style of game play in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla similar to what players experienced in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. We’ve all heard or seen how brutal the wars and battles of Vikings are and in this new game, players will experience exactly that with a revamped combat system that includes the ability to dual-wield weapons for assault!
Apart from other apparent character customization like hair, gear and more, players will also have to wisely choose their responses and dialogues as different choices will result in different outcomes – thus the onus is back on the player to think and play this out smartly!
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, Stadia and Windows PC on Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store. Additionally, the Gold, Ultimate and the Collectors Editions will be out as well.
Players can pre-order the digital copy on PC and the retail copy on PS4 and Xbox One. For more information, visit the Assassin’s Creed website.
