Recently released promotional pictures reveal, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is going to be set in the Viking age.
This barely comes as a surprise for history buffs as Valhalla is a huge part of Viking tradition and history. The game is going to be compatible with PS4, PS5, Xbox, Pc, and Stadia and will be launched sometime in 2020.
The program was announced right after the live stream of Ubisoft ended.
What Will Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Focus On?
From a historical standpoint, the Viking age refers to a period between 600 CE to 1000 CE. So, the game is definitely a predecessor of Assassin’s Creed. Rumors state that the game would mainly focus on the Order of Ancients and the Hidden One turning into the Templar Order and the Vikings.
The Origins of the Assassin’s Creed had been previously discussed in Origins and Odyssey. But Valhalla would really reinforce the previously held ideas.
As gamers must have already guessed, the game would confirm many theories that have been circulating in the previous games. And just like Odyssey, gamers would have the chance to play as either a male or a female.
The most important and interesting aspect of the game is the artwork created for the game. It shows a Viking Warrior standing his ground and being the separation between two scenes- one that shows the Vikings traveling via their longboats, while the other shows them plundering English lands.
The Viking in the center possesses an ax that has the Brotherhood insignia on it, along with a raven. The raven could be an interpretation of Odin – who had ravens in Norse mythology. So a raven would probably give the gamer a drone’s view of the surroundings.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the latest in the series following Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which was launched in 2018.
