An Intro to Norse Mythology in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

-

Ubisoft has brought online a new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla video in which the game’s narrative director Darby McDevitt introduces Norse mythology. In the video, you’ll learn more about the beliefs and cultural values of the varied denizens of the game.

In addition to the Norse mythology video, there’s also a new TV commercial that you can watch below as well.

In the game, Eivor is a fierce (male or female) Viking raider torn between their duty to their brother Sigurd and a personal quest for glory. Driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources, Eivor’s clan must secure a future among the kingdoms of England.

During their journey, Eivor will come across the Hidden Ones, and face powerful figures including Saxon kings and the warmongering sons of Ragnar Lothbrok, as well as a mysterious, growing threat that could determine England’s destiny.

With development led by Ubisoft Montreal, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla offers players the captivating experience of playing as Eivor in a beautiful and mysterious open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages. Players can take advantage of new features, including raids, weapon dual-wielding, and settlement building.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will release worldwide November 10 (pre-order at Amazon) on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, as well as on UPLAY+, Ubisoft’s subscription service and Stadia. The game will release on PlayStation 5 alongside the launch of the console from November 12.

In the game, Eivor will be able to dual-wield axes, swords and even shields against the greatest variety of enemy types ever seen in an Assassin’s Creed. Additionally, the return of the Hidden Blade allows Eivor to assassinate targets with deadly precision.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an ambitious action role-playing game that places player choice and exploration at the center of the experience. Throughout the world, players will encounter gameplay challenges, unique and surprising characters with unforgettable stories and a variety of breathtaking landscapes to set foot on.

Players will have the ability to customize their character’s hair, tattoos, war paint, weapons and gear, in addition to the option of switching between male or female Eivor at any time.

Political alliances, combat decisions and dialogue choices can influence the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, so players must choose wisely to protect their clan’s home and future.

The Gold, Ultimate, and Collector’s Editions of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as well as the Ubicollectibles products are available for pre-orders.

Fans who pre-order Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will receive “The Way of the Berserker” bonus mission at launch, in which players will join a legendary Norse Berserker on his quest for revenge.
