Eivor sounds like he’s selling expensive athleisure in this Assassin’s Creed Valhalla trailer

Ah yes, here's the face of Eivor. You know him for being the muscly, bearded bloke in Ubisoft's upcoming Vikings game Assassin's Creed Valhalla. No surprise such a famous fella would be getting deals to appear in commercials for—sorry, wait, he's still repping his own game that's not out yet? I dunno, are you absolutely sure he's not selling performance-enhancing basketball shorts or something? Oh…

Netflix is doing an Assassin’s Creed TV show, and it should be a direct sequel to the movie

I'm dead serious, on both counts. Netflix's NX Twitter account just Twote out a little teaser for a live action Assassin's Creed Netflix Original Series. Right now there's no date, no hint at the setting, and no actors attached. It is a few bars of that musical sting we all love, and the AssCreed logo with an N in it.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s post-launch expansions set sail for Ireland, Paris

In letting us pillage jolly old England, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla has already promised a tempting power fantasy. But Ubisoft's upcoming historical stab 'em up isn't stopping with just one country. Revealed in a new trailer outlining Valhalla's post-launch plans, it looks like Eivor will be setting sail for the Emerald Isle before taking an axe to Ubisoft's own Parisian front door in two major expansions,…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla sings of conquest and conspiracy in new trailer

Given the subject, Assassin's Creed Valhalla probably didn't need to tell us why our merry band of Norsemen are off pillaging England. Who wouldn't? But it's gone and done so anyway with this week's new story trailer. As it turns out, there's a whole lotta brotherly love, royal squabbling and series-mandated Templar conspiracies rumbling underneath all that Anglo-bashing.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will launch a week early, November 10th

Surprise! Ubisoft just announced Assassin's Creed Valhalla will come out on November 10th, a week earlier than expected.

Sorry, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla takes place after Ragnar Lothbrok is dead

Every time an Assassin's Creed setting is revealed, it feels like there's a flurry of speculation on which historical and legendary folks will show up for a cameo.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s soundtrack trailer is actually a female Eivor trailer

Ubisoft have published a new version of their cinematic trailer for Assassin's Creed Valhalla. It's mighty similar to the first one we saw, though this one includes music from the official soundtrack instead of modern rock. Oh, and it also swaps out bearded Eivor for not-bearded Eivor, the other half of of Valhalla's interchangeable protagonist.

You can pet and snuggle the cats in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

When Assassin's Creed Valhalla releases this November, it will put players in the shoes of Eivor - a big, tough Viking assassin, fully prepared to slaughter the English. Now, if that's not quite the selling point you were after, it might please you to know that this burly warrior will also be able to pet and snuggle all the cats they come across on their…

The next Ubisoft Forward showcase is coming in September

Don't look now, FakE3 isn't over just yet. We've still got the next Xbox event tomorrow and yet another Ubisoft Forward too. The latter, it turns out, will be coming in September. The news came during Ubisoft's quarterly earnings call. At what point do we stop calling it unofficial E3 and just admit we've bled into holiday reveals season? Never? Ah, swell.

Relax and raid to the sounds of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Out Of The North

Usually, when I'm working the news shift, I'll pop on one of those lo-fi youtube mixes to keep my ears distracted. Today, however, I'm thinking about trying something a little more Nordic. This week, a snippet of Assassin's Creed Valhalla's soundscape hit Spotify in the form of the Out Of The North EP, a seven-track mix of chanting, panpipes and warlike drums to study /…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will let you switch between the female and male Eivor

Where Assassin's Creed Odyssey made players choose between playing as Kassandra or Alexios at the start and Syndicate missions often picked a Frye twin for you, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will let players switch between the female and male versions of our lone hero Eivor whenever we please. That mostly sounds useful for double-checking which voice actor you prefer and not having to start over if…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will launch on November 17th

Ubisoft today announced a November 17th release date for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, the next in their open-world murder simulator series. The date leaked yesterday but shh. And pretending that we haven't been watching great reams of leaked Valhalla gameplay all week, they very proudly released a video showing and explaining more of the game. I suppose it'd be polite to act surprised by revelations of…
