Going Norse

Set during England’s Dark Ages, the open-world game will see Eivor lead their Norse clan away from Norway and to England’s fractured kingdoms. Players will be faced with “political alliances, combat decisions, and dialogue choices” that can influence the game world. New features this time include raids to new locations to increase resources, the ability to grow settlements (which will also act as a hub), an mechanics for players to build their power and expand their influence.

As you would expect, playing as Vikings also brings changes to the combat system in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Eivor will be able to dual-wield weapons as they face a greater variety of enemies than before.

Ubisoft was mum on details for the PS5 and Xbox One versions of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. This probably as it Sony and Microsoft are yet to officially announce all the details of the respective consoles, including price, launch date, and – in Sony’s case – even what the console looks like.
