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…

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game kicks off its comeback tour

It's been ten years since it originally came out, and six years since it mysteriously disappeared from digital stores, but today Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game made its comeback. It's an excellent little beat 'em up based on the Scott Pilgrim comic series (or if you've not read those, the film starring Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and this new version of…

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: Cave story

Have You Played… Far Cry Primal?

I'm a sucker for Far Cry's charismatic bad guys. Since Far Cry 3, Ubisoft has obviously been aiming to write villians that thrill and terrify in equal measure, but with the stone-age Far Cry Primal they weren't as concerned about handsome, hypnotic lunatics, or superforeigners that were here to save the day via a never-ending stream of bullets. To my eyes, at least, they wanted…

Feature: Forgotten Prince

Have you played… Prince Of Persia (2008)?

It's genuinely strange to me that more people don't talk about the 2008 Prince Of Persia. Okay, it's probably the art style, which deviates massively from the other games in the series. It's also a sort of reboot with less of a focus on time-manipulation and combat, choosing instead to focus on the dynamic between the two main characters. My point is, I can see…

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game stages its comeback for January

After years in hiding, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game is returning to the stage to play a comeback tour. Earlier this year, Ubisoft announced that the beat 'em up game that's been unavailable to buy for several years now would be back on the digital shelf this winter. The Complete Edition will launch on January 14, 2021.

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…

Feature: Here's where to find Alfred's key to unlock his secret study.

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

Towards the end of Assassin's Creed Valhalla you'll get to speak to Alfred one final time. He'll even tell you about his super secret study, which you can unlock with Alfred's key. 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.

Have you played… Assassin’s Creed: Origins?

If there's one thing you should know about my gaming habits it's that I unironically bloody love me some Assassin's Creed. That means the older sneaky-stabby AC and the more modern shouty-pillage fests like Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Assassin's Creed Origins is the awkward middle step between the two, acting as the series' first go at a proper RPG.

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…

Feature: Here's who you should pick as Ealdorman.

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?
