Ubisoft just dropped the first “gameplay trailer” for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, showing us a more of their upcoming game about Vikings keen to slit throats as much as split skulls. It’s a gameplay trailer not a gameplay video, unsurprisingly, so we’re still waiting for an actual look at the game in action. But if you enjoy cutscenes and seeing stabbings, axings, battering-rammings, and arrowings, oh baby this is here for you. I am also excited to see that maybe I’ll get to have a raven friend?
Valhalla stars Eivor, a Viking in male or female varieties who has come to England to help give the English a good kicking. Presumably they get tangled in some sort of alien nonsense too. We’ll also get to establish a settlement to call home when not raiding.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is coming this holiday season (November-ish) to the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. Development is being led by Ubisoft Montreal with support from a dozen other Ubi studios.
