Ubisoft surprised us all with a recent Assassin’s Creed Valhalla artwork reveal, and it had the community's pulse absolutely racing over the new game.
This will be the 12th title to come to the series, and we know that Valhalla will be set in the Viking-era game, so gamers can expect to see a lot of raids, boats and combat.
We also know that the game will feature some RPG elements too, making it more of a customised experience than we’ve seen in previous titles.
Based on what little has been revealed so far, it has been difficult to determine what the plot of the game could be, but we are expecting a Viking invasion of Britain.
WHO ARE YOU: Is this King Alfred the Great in the trailer?
The narrator in the trailer is believed to be King Alfred the Great, who dealt with the Vikings during the 9th Century.
It makes sense historically since it was he who made an agreement with the Vikings (but not after significant bloodshed).
"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."
There are a lot of editions out there to choose from.
THE BIG REVEAL: We caught our first real look at Valhalla at the recent artwork reveal!
With the Standard Edition setting you back £54.99 and the Gold, Ultimate, and Collector’s editions costing even more, it won’t be cheap to get all of the extras.
Most major game retailers are already taking pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a cross-gen title and will be available on the PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X, Stadia and PC.
We've already heard about the cross-gen rumours, but very little has been said about cross-platform play.
TRUCE: Could we see crossplay implemented between Xbox and PlayStation players? We sure hope so.
The ultimate goal would, of course, be crossplay, as this would enable players on different platforms to raid together and share the riches.
We’re still unclear on how this feature will be implemented, but that's one for the dev team to clear up for us.
Perhaps we could hear something about it at the upcoming Xbox Series X game reveal event.
