Ubisoft has just released the World Premiere trailer for the next Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will release in Holiday 2020 and will be exclusive on Epic Games Store and UPLAY. In short, the game will not be coming to Steam.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla invites players to live the saga of Eivor; a fierce Viking raider raised on tales of battle and glory. The game brings players to a dynamic and beautiful open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages. Furthermore, players can take advantage of new features, including raids, growing their settlement, building their power and expanding their influence.
Players will be able to choose to play as either a male or female Eivor. Players will also have access to customization tools. These include the ability to customize hair, tattoos, war paint and gear. Political alliances, combat decisions, and dialogue choices can influence the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, so players must choose wisely to protect their clan’s home and future.
Players must carve out a new future for their clan, reliving the ruthless fighting style of Viking warriors. The game will have a revamped combat system that includes the ability to dual-wield weapons against a greater variety of enemies than ever before. To secure resources players can lead raids to select locations using their longship to earn much-needed riches and resources. As the Vikings begin to settle in their new home, they encounter resistance from the Saxons including King Aelfred of Wessex, who denounces them as heathens and looks to be the sole ruler of a civilized England. Against all odds, Eivor must do what is necessary to keep Valhalla within reach.
