Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s trailer and cover art have finally been released!

This clearly shows a Viking era game, with boats and combat in multiple locations, alongside some more RPG elements too.

This has us extremely hyped for the new game as well as a bunch of possible new features that we could see in the upcoming title.

There is the possibility of a Co-op campaign as well as a Player vs Player mode, similar to the one seen in earlier titles like Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.

Co-op Campaign

The last game to try and utilise a serious Co-op Campaign was Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

UNITE WITH FRIENDS – We have our fingers crossed for another Co-op campaign in Valhalla!

Set during the French revolution, the game seemed to focus way more on the co-op gameplay rather than the story.

This led to many fans of the series left disappointed with the overall experience of the game.

Valhalla could be a great opportunity for Unity to have another go at a Co-op Campaign. If they can learn from their mistakes and improve upon Unity’s downfall, they could create a great game to share with your friends or play alone.

Custom Raider

One feature that’s mentioned to be in the game is the ability to create your own custom raider.

On the official Ubisoft website, it reads that players will be able to share their creations online and ‘reap the spoils’ when they fight alongside their friends.

It’s also possible to recruit other people’s custom mercenary as well.

PvP Game Mode

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood included some of the most unique PvP game modes to date.

BETTER THAN THE REST – A PvP game mode would allow you to hone your skills against other Assassins!

The main focus was a “Cat and Mouse” style game mode, where one team would chase the other.

This was incredibly fun but had little to no progression so there was little point in playing the PvP game mode.

Valhalla could include some Player vs Player combat, similar to For Honour, with arena-style combat.

This would definitely add some exciting new features to the next title and increase the skill cap to improve the player’s combat and movement.

Player Trading

In the most recent game, Odyssey, you’re able to collect and improve pieces of armour, similar to the upgrade system seen in The Division and Destiny.

HACK AND SLASH – Take on Europe as a Viking using very primitive weapons!

Because of this, you start to build an inventory of unique and interesting weapons and armour that eventually you don’t end up using.

This leaves room for a possible Marketplace between players to buy and sell gear to improve their character.

Although this would add another interesting feature to Valhalla, it is most likely something Ubisoft is not interested in pursuing right now.

Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for more information from Ubisoft regarding gameplay details before we know any more.

What does the hidden blade look like in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?

After its absence in much of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the hidden blade is finally returning to the game!

In the trailer, we watched our protagonist, Eivor, use his hidden blade to triumph over a might foe when defeat seemed a certainty.

However, Eivor’s hidden blade doesn’t fit the traditional aesthetic of the assassins’ go-to weapon.
