Yesterday we knew that a full reveal was coming for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and we finally received the full debut trailer. We know that this game will be taking place in the Viking Age and we’re playing the role of a warrior that is guiding his people from a new tyranny threat basing the Viking people as cruel beasts through false facts. While the trailer packs in some information about when the game will be set along with a few characters that are present through the campaign, but we also got more information on additional key features to the game.
IGN was able to speak with Ubisoft’s game director Ashraf Ismail where he has broken the game down a bit further. We know that this game will be taking a lot of the elements found in the past two main installments such as a large open world to explore and a means of customization. You’ll have plenty of gear pieces that will allow players to tweak their character of which has been confirmed can be either male or female. These gear pieces can also be customized a bit but more information on that front is likely to come at a later date.
Another interesting aspect of this game is that players will have a settlement of some sort that can be built upon. Known as Eivor. Apparently, players will have the ability to create buildings and upgrade their settlement in a way that will play a role in the actual gameplay. Outside of this settlement, there are other locations that can be raided for goods and resources.
It’s confirmed that there are four kingdoms at least in this world and we’re sure that there will be plenty of people to meet and aid along the way. Just as before, choices are another key component to the game again with your decisions on the political alliances you team up with to the dialogue choices selected in conversation will affect the game world. We’re sure even more information is bound to come soon as the game is slated to release his holiday season. For now, this initial reveal seems to be a positive one so far with fans of the franchise.
