According to The Verge, Valhalla marks the newest game in the series since 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which added a variety of new RPG-like mechanics to the series for the first time. Ubisoft didn’t release a new title in the series in 2019, instead using the time to continue to support Odyssey with updates and work on the next game in the series.
Ubisoft has yet to announce a release date for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or which platforms it’ll be available on — including whether it will be available on the upcoming next-generation Xbox One X and PlayStation 5 consoles.
The art shows a pair of scenes: Viking longboats against what looks like a Norwegian fjord, and Viking raiders attacking what looks like a British medieval castle.
The game’s main character, meanwhile, is shown in fur-lined armour with a Thor-like beard. A black raven, the animal associated with Viking god Odin, flies behind.
The unnamed character wields an axe with the Assassins emblem on its blade – the emblem is itself made up of two axes. Axe citing stuff! See you tomorrow for the full reveal.
This is a pretty cool setting for Assassin’s Creed. We’ve been all over Europe, Ancient Greece, Egypt and even the Americas in past entries but we’ve yet to visit the Norse lands. Until now.
