It’s official…we’re all going to Valhalla.
Seems like we’ll be soon under a deluge of Ubisoft goodness as the company’s taken the cover off the latest entry in their Assassin’s Creed series.
Ever since the gameplay reboot with Origins, and which was then refined with Odyssey, the Assassin’s Creed series has been phenomenal, both in execution and in quality of DLC content. Case in point; getting Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Season Pass also netted you a remaster of Assassin’s Creed III and Liberation, plus all solo DLC…that is on top of the three DLC expansions for Odyssey.
I’ve honestly not seen a better Season Pass offered for any game that matched this value.
But enough about Odyssey, we’re here to talk about Valhalla!
As you can probably guess, Valhalla is going to be all about Vikings and what looks to be their campaign against England. There’s not much to go on since we don’t even have a gameplay trailer to see the game in action but there’s a very intriguing hint present in the reveal trailer.
Conquer?…I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you’re going to be able to take over villages, towns…maybe even castle sieges. While I’m musing…will we be seeing the Norse Pantheon in some fashion? After all, Valhalla’s the place where valiant Norse warriors go to after they die.
It’d make sense; after all, the makers of the Apple of Eden are pretty much gods, so they can pretty much fit into the story without any trouble at all. Hell, Mjolnir could just be an incredibly advanced portable weather control device developed by them.
Whatever the case, we’ll be finding out real soon as Microsoft’s scheduled to have an Xbox Series X games showcase on May 7th. Since Valhalla is also a Series X title (along with it being a PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox One game), it’s definitely going to be there.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s coming out Holiday 2020.
