Yesterday, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was officially announced by Ubisoft. Today, Ubisoft not only revealed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but they also released a lot of information about the latest Assassin’s Creed. That’s what we’ll be talking about right now. The livestream just ended, so it turned into the “World Premiere” of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla…
What’s the story? According to UbiSoft’s synopsis… “Become Eivor, a mighty Viking raider and lead your clan from the harsh shores of Norway to a new home amid the lush farmlands of ninth-century England. Explore a beautiful, mysterious open world where you’ll face brutal enemies, raid fortresses, build your clan’s new settlement, and forge alliances to win glory and earn a place in Valhalla.
England in the age of the Vikings is a fractured nation of petty lords and warring kingdoms. Beneath the chaos lies a rich and untamed land waiting for a new conqueror. Will it be you?”
