Ubisoft have released the launch trailer for their latest fray into the Assassins Creed universe, Assassins Creed Valhalla, as well as details on additional content we can expect in the future and much more!
Make sure your axes are sharpened and blades are ready, as it’s time to jump into the notorious Viking era. We follow the adventures of Eivor, who with the help of his clan will leave the icy desolation of Northern Norway and head to the rich but fractured lands of England.
With unique ways to fight opponents, Assassins Creed Valhalla makes the Viking experience even more realistic with the all new revamped dual wielding combat system. Dual wield axes, swords or even shields to bring out the true Viking in you, or bring out your the inner assassin and use the well known hidden blade.
Assassins Creed Valhalla also introduces players to all new gameplay features including raids, settlement- building and the ability to customise hair, tattoos and much more! Finally, players will even be given the chance to decide their own destiny. The choices the player makes directly influences the world around them so you must choose wisely if you are to protect Eivor’s clan’s home and future.
