The next instalment of the class-leading Assassin’s Creed is just around the corner and before we know it we’ll be hopping into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and experiencing the life of a fierce Viking raider. In order to build up the hype a little – like it needs building! – Ubisoft have today dropped a brand new trailer, one that goes deep into the life of Eivor and allows players to get a glimpse of the legendary Viking saga that awaits.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be launching on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S (you can grab the game from the Xbox Store for pre-order right now), PS4 and PC on November 10th, with a PS5 launch rolling out at the release of the console from November 12th, and an Amazon Luna drop at the launch of the Ubisoft channel. And when it does arrive, it’s looking likely we’ll be in for an utter treat as Valhalla offers players the captivating experience of playing as Eivor, a legendary Viking raider. Set in a beautiful and mysterious open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages, we’ll be able to take advantage of new features, including raids, weapon dual-wielding, and settlement building.
The story trailer offers players a new glimpse of Eivor, a fierce Viking raider torn between their duty to their brother Sigurd and a personal quest for glory. Driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources, Eivor’s clan must secure a future among the kingdoms of England. During their journey, Eivor will come across the Hidden Ones, and face powerful figures including Saxon kings and the warmongering sons of Ragnar Lothbrok, as well as a mysterious, growing threat that could determine England’s destiny”.
Further to that though, Ubisoft have also announced Echoes of Valhalla, a podcast series that kicks off today and unveils the historical background of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. In Echoes of Valhalla we will find Vikings telling their very own story to give a new voice to the warriors who have travelled and shaped the world. If you wish to give it a listen, you should head to Spotify right this minute.
