Launching this holiday on current and next-gen formats, the cinematic trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is here.
Presumably set during the late 800s, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla depicts the conflict between the Vikings and the English. In the trailer, we see the game’s male protagonist, Eivor, go up against who we believe to be King Alfred, otherwise known as Alfred the Great. In real life, he oversaw the conversion of Viking leader Guthrum to Christianity.
Like in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, players will be able to choose between a male and female version of Eivor, however. In fact, players will be able to customise their character more than ever in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, with multiple hair, tattoo, war paint and gear options to choose from. The world, too, will be shaped by your decisions: via combat, political alliances and dialogue.
Set to arrive this Holiday on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Stadia and PC, Ubisoft has announced multiple special editions of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, that will all be available at launch. The Gold Edition includes the game and the season pass, while the Ultimate Edition includes the same as well as the Ultimate Pack, which contains exclusive customisation content.
Series fans are likely going to want to get their hands on the Collector’s Edition, however, which includes everything found in the Ultimate Edition along with a 30cm tall statue of the female version of Eivor along with her Drakkar, a steelbook, a numbered certificate of authenticity, a 5cm tall Viking statuette of the male version of Eivor with his raven and Dane Axe, exclusive lithographs, and a soundtrack selection. The Collector’s Edition will be exclusive to the Ubistore.
Anyone who pre-orders any version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will receive access to an additional mission at launch, called The Way of the Berserker. In it, players will accompany a legendary Norse Berserker as they embark upon a quest for revenge. For PC gamers, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will also be included in Uplay+, Ubisoft’s subscription service.
