Trailer

The reveal trailer arrived on Thursday, 30 April 2020, which allowed us to get a greater feel of the setting.

Plot

Of course, it's difficult to guess what the plot of the game could be, but it looks to be the Viking invasion of Britain.

The narrator in the trailer is believed to be King Alfred the Great, who dealt with the Vikings during the 9th Century.

REVEAL YOURSELF – Is this King Alfred the Great?

He finally made an agreement with the Vikings, but not after significant bloodshed.

The official Ubisoft site reads:

In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you are Eivor, a fierce Viking warrior raised on tales of battle and glory.

Explore a dynamic and beautiful open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages.

Raid your enemies, grow your settlement and build your political power in your quest to earn your place among the gods in Valhalla.

In the trailer, Eivor is male, but with the Ubisoft store selling a female character too, it looks to be your choice.

Possible ending?

No, this does not contain spoilers, but using history we can start guessing the climax to Valhalla.

There was a continuous tug of war between the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings during the 1st Century AD.

King Alfred attempted to keep the peace by giving the Danes certain areas of England, but he was ultimately poisoned.

Could this be by Eivor in Valhalla? We'll have to wait and see.

Sailing missions

The cover suggests boats will appear and that does support what was circulating online last year.
