The Assassin’s Creed franchise has been the bread and butter of Ubisoft for a while now, and after the release of Odyssey back in 2018, the studio has unveiled their upcoming title, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Here’s the description for the game:

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?

With the great reviews that Odyssey got, it looks like Valhalla is looking to expand on the gameplay. Besides being able to fight in these huge battleground scenarios, Ubisoft is adding the ability to customize settlements, so you can make things easier for yourself and your clan. I have no doubt the Norse gods will also have some kind of influence on the gameplay.

When it comes to naval warfare though, I think we should expect something different. I always thought that Viking ships were kind of small and were only meant for travel. Then again, all I have to back up that info is the first season of Vikings.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, PC, and Stadia, and will come out this holiday season.
