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…

As they do, a group of developers with past experience at bigtime studios BioWare and Ubisoft have shrugged off the corporate chains and gotten together to create a new game studio. Mike Laidlaw, Jeff Skalski, Frédéric St-Laurent B., and Thomas Giroux have teamed up to create Yellow Brick Games, a new studio in Quebec City.

Two of Immortals Fenyx Rising’s DLCs will star new heroes

Ubisoft's upcoming Greek mythology romp Immortals Fenyx Rising has announced its DLC plans and, interestingly, your title hero Fenyx actually only stars in one out of the three. The new stories coming in the season pass after Immortals' campaign will give Fenyx some new challenges before heading off to explore Chinese myths and a new Greek hero.

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…

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…

Rainbow Six Siege’s big Tachanka rework is now live

Yesterday, Rainbow Six Siege operator Tachanka threw his turret out the window, picked up an LMG and started running around blowing holes in walls and doors, all while yelling with a completely different voice. The Russian defender hasn't gone mad mind you, he's just had a major rework and come out the other side a new man - literally, because as well as new weapons…

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…

Feature: Here's where to find Cat's Footsteps and Mountain Root.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Asgard riddles: where to find Cat’s Footsteps and Mountain Root

You'll travel to Asgard part way through Assassin's Creed Valhalla, where you'll meet Loki, Thor, Freja and more. Eventually, a giant wolf will come into play, and you'll need to craft an enchanted chain to keep it under control. Problem is, this chain is made up of some pretty weird components, including Cat's Footsteps and Mountain Root. You're given some riddles to help you find…

Feature: Can you unlock Double Assassination in AC: Valhalla?

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Double Assassination: can you assassinate two enemies at once?

The Double Assassination has featured in many Assassin's Creed games, allowing players to kill two enemies at once. Assassin's Creed Valhalla shares a lot of its DNA with older AC games, even equipping Eivor with a hidden blade at the start of the game. Let's take a look at whether or not you can unlock Double Assassination.

While on your quest to take control of England in Assassin's Creed Valhalla you'll meet a warrior named Soma in Grantebridge, starting the Stench of Treachery mission.

It looks like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is adding achievements after all

Update: After all that, it appears Ubisoft will be adding achievements to Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Another Ubi employee jumped into the thread to apologise for "the confusion and miscommunication", and confirm that achievements are actually on the way."We are aware that achievements are not available for Assassin's Creed Valhalla players on PC - this was unintended," they say. "We are actively working to enable achievements…
