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.

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…

Ahead of Ubisoft's big notE3 show this weekend, gameplay footage of Assassin's Creed Valhalla continues to leak. Following the half-hour of gameplay seen earlier this week, now someone's come up with seven minutes of the female Eivor in a boss battle against some sort of "demon goddess".

Eivor will lay down the bants in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s traditional Viking rap battles

Will the real Medieval History majors please stand up? Ubisoft previously tossed out a tidbit on "viking rap battles" that will make an appearance in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Creative director Ashraf Ismail has popped up to say a bit more about how these historically-inspired showdowns will take place in Valhalla. Apparently flyting (or fliting), as it was called by anglo-saxon and norse folks, was like, a…

Apparently Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be bigger than Odyssey, actually

Forget review scores. The only true way to judge a game's quality is the converted square kilometers of its virtual world. Or so you'd think, with how big a talking point it is during the marketing campaign for every big open-world adventure. For a minute there, it sounded like Assassin's Creed Valhalla would actually be smaller that its enormous predecessor Odyssey. Not so, says a…

Xbox say they “set some wrong expectations” for yesterday’s gameplay reveals

After lots and lots of #hype in the form of a livestream digital painting reveal that was the precursor to a proper trailer which was also just a precursor to what we were assured would be a first look at actual gameplay, folks were a bit let down by the not very gameplay-looking new video for Assassin's Creed Valhalla during Microsoft's Xbox 20/20 event yesterday. Microsoft's…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s first gameplay trailer is here

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…
