Feature: She had it coming

Shout out to the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla NPC who went all in on killing his daughter

Recently I have been spending a lot of time in Assassin's Creed Valhalla galloping around the east and south east. There are some lovely views around Kent and Dover, and it's nice to go to the beach sometimes instead of traipsing through the moist fecundity of the more forested areas in Mercia. This means I have been hoovering up some of the side quests (or…

December's well on its way, which means that games all across the land are releasing a dusting of snow and limited-time holiday-themed events. That includes Ubisoft's viking 'em up Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which is kicking off a Yule Festival with an expanded settlement, some new armor to don, and a couple new holiday missions.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is selling XP boosts for cash now

Here I thought Assassin's Creed Valhalla might get away from those icky experience point boosters Ubisoft so like to put in their games, alas it was not to be. In Valhalla's in-game store you can now buy XP boosts for real-life cash, which effectively double your XP gain. They're designed to save you time, so you don't need to do tons of side quests to…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla starts celebrating Yuletide today

Ubisoft's Viking adventure, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, adds some limited-time winter festivities today. Preparations for the Yule Festival have dropped alongside the game's 1.1.0 title update, which also lays the groundwork for the upcoming Settlement expansion. It all comes with a bundle of merry bug fixes and game improvements too - addressing the serious stuff like freezes and balancing, and the fun stuff such as floating…

Feature: Here's who to pick as Snotinghamscire's new Jarl.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Snotinghamscire Jarl: should you pick Vili or Trygve?

You'll have to make many difficult choices in Assassin's Creed Valhalla as you work to conquer England's Saxon forces. Appointing the new Jarl of Snotinghamscire is one such choice, and your old friend Vili is one of the candidates. Problem is, he isn't really up for all the new responsibility, so you'll need to weigh up whether he's the man for the job. Here's whether…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Alfred’s Study location: where to get Alfred’s Key and enter the study

To help you find Alfred's study we've detailed the location below. We'll go into some detail on where to get the key, and what's inside the study once you open it.

Feature: Who is The Vault in Jorvik's Closing the Vault quest?

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Closing the Vault: who is The Vault of Jorvik?

During the Jorvik arc in Assassin's Creed Valhalla you will need to reveal the identity of The Vault, a member of the Order of the Ancients. Doing so can be pretty tricky, as you don't have much to go on. During the feast you will get a chance to speak to a number of people, and then must accuse either Audun, Hjorr, Faravid, or Ricsige.…

As Ubisoft had planned, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is getting another update this month with more bug fixes and adjustments that they've now announced is dropping tomorrow.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s dice minigame comes to the real world next year

Orlog! Orlog! Orlog! I have played a grand total of four hours of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and at least two of them have been playing this daft dice game. Much like The Witcher 3's Gwent, players can stumble upon Orlog challengers throughout Valhalla, and partake in a weirdly engrossing minigame. I have good news for those of us who've got hooked on it - Ubisoft…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Lincolnscire Ealdorman choice: who to choose in the Where the Stone Falls quest

During the Lincolnscire arc in Assassin's Creed Valhalla you will need to cast your vote as to who should take over as Ealdorman. It's all part of the Where the Stone Falls quest, and you'll have three options. Should you choose Hunwald, Aelfgar or Herefrith as Lincolnscire's new Ealdorman?

Feature: Should you give Dag his axe at the end of your final fight?

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: should you give Dag his axe?

Dag has been pretty anti-everything you've done so far in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, so it's unsurprising that you end up fighting him. There's an important choice to be made at the end of the fight: give Dag his axe or just let him die? This decision does actually affect the ending of the game, so we've detailed what happens below. AC Valhalla: Should you give…

Feature: These boots are made for generating income

Why is everyone making terrible trainers for their video games?

Right now, as I'm sure you're aware, none of us are allowed to touch anything with our hands, in case we spread viral loads from yesterday's grubby front door to today's gaping mouth hole. Many of us are adapting to this by instead using our feet to take on many everyday hand tasks; I am typing this with my long and dextrous toes. Feet: they're…

Feature: Is the traitor Gerhild or Lork?

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Essexe traitor: who is Rollo’s traitor in the Old Wounds quest?

There's a traitor afoot in the Essexe arc of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and it's up to you to work out who it is. Rollo will take you to his camp where two suspects are waiting. The traitor is either Gerhild or Lork, and there's very little evidence to go on. To make sure you pick the right person we've named the traitor below. We'll explain…

Feature: Here's what you'll get for collecting all 33 Ymir's Blood Stones.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Ymir’s Blood Stones: what is the reward for getting 33

During the Asgard arc of Assassin's Creed Valhalla you'll make your way to Jotunheim. It's a small open world area with its own side quests, and collectibles called Ymir's Blood Stones. There are 33 to collect, and once you have them all you can trade them in for a reward. This will take a while, so to help you weigh up whether it's all worth…

Coo! Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Raven can be turned into a pigeon

Ravens are pretty cool, I reckon. Lovely, massive, terrifying crows. But how often do you even see 'em while traipsing out in the English countryside? No, it's flockin' pigeons all over the place. Thanks to an Amazon Prime reward, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will let you represent Britain's unofficial national bird, transforming Eivor's graceful fluttering pal into a blank-eyed flying rat.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s English countryside makes for a lovely three hour walk

How Big Is The Map is my new favourite website and YouTube channel. The answers to the question the site poses are given in the time it takes to cross a game's map, not the physical size of the world. That’s an important distinction because each game has different methods of traversal. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, for instance, not only lets you parkour, run, and walk,…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla pays tribute to The Prodigy’s Keith Flint

Players running around in Assassin's Creed Valhalla over the last week or so have already uncovered a few Easter eggs here and there: nods to other games like Dark Souls, for example, and even a quest rife with Tolkien references. But our very own guides editor Jake has found one that's much more heartwarming - a tribute to The Prodigy frontman, Keith Flint, who sadly…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla deploys hotfix for early quest bug and plans more fixes later this month

Assassin's Creed Valhalla has slashed through its release date, but some of you may have had trouble off the bat with progression through an early quest blocked by a bug. A Seer's Solace has been fixed, Ubisoft say, with fixes for other quest bugs and known issues coming later this month. So find some solace in that then, eh Eivor?

Unsurprisingly, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla isn’t that historically accurate

This will likely come as a surprise to no one, but Ubisoft's latest sneaky murder adventure, Asassin's Creed Valhalla, doesn't seem to be very historically accurate. It's nothing huge or revelatory - I'm sure we all know Vikings didn't truly have magical ravens they could see through the eyes of, after all. But if you're interested in the history of England and Norway, I'd go…
