The next chapter of Assassin’s Creed franchise has finally been announced to be released in the holiday of 2020! In the Assassin Creed Valhalla, you will be a Viking raider known as Eivor who will lead his clan from Norway to a new home in the farmlands of ninth-century England around the time of 873 AD. On this journey, you will need to conquer hostiles land by any means necessary to earn your place in Valhalla. You will be able to choose between a male and female main character even though the male is the only one in the trailer, however, all we know about the female Eivor is the appearance will be different and the voice over.
Many of you will be happy to hear that they are keeping this game as an RPG (role-playing game) with added branding dialogue and player choices that can change the outcome of your game. With the advanced RPG mechanics, it will allow you to shape your character and influence the world around you.
There are going to be big, epic-scale battles in the game in addition to raids. It’s hard to extrapolate how combat will really feel from a cinematic trailer, but it does contain some things we’ll encounter in the game, including some very tall, heavily armored Saxon warriors.
Our main character Eivor has already had some confirmed combat abilities. As we have seen from the trailer you are able to use throwing axes, you are also able to dual wield pretty much all combinations of weapons so you can use whatever you want. Also, you may have noticed the classic assassin’s hidden blade is back, although it is less hidden this time as it comes out a chamber on the topside of Eivor’s gauntlet rather than underneath.
In Valhalla, base management will play a major role. “It’s your own Viking village you’ll see prosper and grow, and which your clanmates will live in, “It’s at the center of our quests and the center of the decisions you make. We want players to see the consequences of their actions.” You’ll manage and grow a Viking settlement in England, which will include constructing and upgrading various buildings like a barracks, a blacksmith, and even a tattoo parlor so you can keep yourself and your clan inked up.
If you have enjoyed the last couple of Assassin’s Creed games I am sure you are looking for its release as much as we are!
