A gameplay video of the game has leaked recently. Afterwards, this issue was intervened immediately and Ubisoft published a video itself. Many new features have been introduced that were not available in previous games. Also in the new game, players will see a lot of bloody battles.
What Time Period Does the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Take Place?
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla takes place in the 9th century Britain . Players will visit the four great kingdoms that were ruling at that time. These will be Mercia, Wessex, East Anglia and Nothumbria. In addition to big cities, it is also possible to visit small towns. These include large areas such as London, Winchester and York. There is also a map of Norway in the game. Players seem to be shuttling between Britain and Norway.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Story and Characters
It is up to you to choose the gender of your character in the game you will play as Norwegian viking clan leader Eivor. In a geography devastated by wars and raids, your journey begins in Norway and continues on the British coast. Inspired by Egyptian and Greek mythology in Origins and Odyssey, this game will come out with Scandinavian myths this time. The clash of Assassins and Templars, which has been around since the early days of the series, also continues in the new game.
A Different Gameplay!
The series, which first features RPG elements in the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game, takes it even further in Valhalla. Along with the renewed battle system, there are dialogue options that will affect the story. You also have the option of raiding and looting hostile villages to develop your own settlement. You will also be able to use your character in online games. A raven will accompany you in this game instead of an eagle that you used to travel with you in previous games. Don’t forget the ravens’ relationship with Odin.
