Assassin’s Creed Valhalla burns down England in today’s debut trailer

Following its teaser-slash-art-project reveal last night, Assassin's Creed Valhalla finally has a proper cinematic trailer. Beards, axes, longboats and raiding? Yup. It's Vikings. Down on their luck and out of options, our latest assassin is crossing the sea to live out the ninth-century Norwegian dream - pillaging the ever-lasting christ out of England.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla announced, starring burly beardy Vikings

Following a curious build-up through a livestreamed drawing, Ubisoft today announced Assassin's Creed Valhalla. This time, Vikings seem to be the stars of the sandbox murder simulator. For now, all Ubisoft have to show is a seven-hour drawing and all they have to say is mutterings about the lads coming "to conquer a new land" and that. We'll learn more tomorrow when a trailer arrives.

Watch the next Assassin’s Creed revealed here live through a drawing

Today's the day for Ubisoft to announce a new Assassin's Creed game, or at least to reveal where they're taking the globetrotting murder simulator next. This is happening through the unconventional medium of an artist drawing a picture on a livestream, which when finished will show the game's landscape and the murderer who'll roam it. Some earlier unconfirmed rumours claimed the game would be Assassin's…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey arena guide – how to become the champion

Ancient Greeks were no stranger to blood sports in some places and while holding them in an arena would be something normally associated with Romans, it's no far stretch to include it in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. In the region of Pephka, there is a dedicated arena where would-be champions duke it out with waves of combatants to defeat in order to come out on top. This…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey cultists guide – all the Cult of Kosmos locations

At a specific point in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you'll come across a group that call themselves the Cult of Kosmos. They're nasty people whose collective goal is to bend the world to their whims by prolonging the Peloponnesian war, terrorising the local populace, and causing widespread chaos. Assassinating them all too soon becomes one of the main focuses of your odyssey, so in order to work…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey map guide – how big is the map, legend icons

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is a massive game. In fact, you can't zoom out all the way to see just how big it really is. Encompassing Ancient Greece into a game is no small feat, so when you first visit the map on the pause screen, you may feel overwhelmed. I know I did when I first looked at it. But for those who want to have…

Tucked away and hidden from plain sight, there's one other big thing that is just waiting to be discovered: Atlantis. Yes, that Atlantis. You can actually explore the fabled lost city and it is quite a striking place full of technology from the ancient civilisation. Accessing…

The 32 best PC games that demand to be played in ultrawide

There's an old saying in gaming monitor circles that once you've gone ultrawide, there's no going back. Indeed, having had the vast Samsung CRG9 hogging my desk for a bit last month, I'm inclined to agree. But what do games actually look like on a screen this wide? It's one thing looking at lovely wallpapers, but another thing entirely to have a game occupy your…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey retires to sunny Atlantis for its final DLC today

Once more unto the beach, dear friends, though returning to Assassin's Creed Odyssey is usually a cheery experience, last episode's detour to Hades aside. Judgement Of Atlantis is the third and final part of the Fate Of Atlantis arc, and likely the the last ever DLC chapter to the open-world hack n' slasher. Out now, it finally lets players rise out of the Greek afterlife…

Ubisoft put their foot down over Assassin’s Creed Odyssey XP farming user-quests

Give people mod tools, and they'll do wonderful things, unless the game has an experience system, then they'll break it over their knees. Predictably, that was one of the first things players did with Assassin's Creed Odyssey's new Story Creator Mode, a browser-based quest editor. Yesterday, Ubisoft put their foot down on players making self-completing XP farming quests, officially stating that their prevalence leads to…
