Ubisoft has already unveiled a ton of information regarding gameplay mechanics in the new game.
The community is piecing together chunks of knowledge around Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
How the game will actually play remains a mystery, so here’s what we know so far.
Gameplay Reveal Trailer
We’ll get a superb view of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Gameplay during the gameplay reveal in Inside Xbox.
This airs on Thursday, 7 May so check back for updates!
More than just raids
Even though the trailer showed off some impressive battle sequences, it looks like the game will be more than just intense action!
According to Ubisoft nearly every decision you make has lasting effects throughout the world and using violence isn’t the only way forward.
Apparently, using persuasion in dialogue with people can also be an effective tool at a time when diplomacy could come in handy!
It looks like the journey is very much open to be altered depending on your the political alliances you build, combat strategies you employ, and dialogue choices you make.
Ubisoft has confirmed that you’ll be able to launch massive assaults against Saxon troops and fortresses throughout England.
You’ll have control over a clan in which you can conduct surprise attacks from your longship and pillage enemy territories to bring riches and resources back to your people.
Ubisoft has also confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will feature the most varied collection of enemies ever found in Assassin’s Creed!
With the sheer quantity of different enemies in Odyssey, we start to understand just how vast the Valhalla universe is going to be.
Your main enemy appears to be King Alfred (Aelfred) the Great, who was victorious over the Vikings after a truce was called in the 9th Century.
In the new game, you’ll be able to unleash the ruthless fighting style of a Viking warrior and dual-wield axes, swords, or even shields against fierce, relentless foes.
You can also fight smart, by choosing the right tactics, opting to either dismember opponents in close-quarters combat, riddle them with arrows, or assassinate them with your hidden blade.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla could well have the largest map to date.
That’s because Ubisoft has stated that you will ‘explore a Dark Age open world, from the harsh shores of Norway to the beautiful kingdoms of England’.
That’s right, the new map will cover both Norway and England!
According to an Instagram post from IGN, the locations include the Kingdoms of Wessex, Northumbria, East Anglia and Mercia (all England), with the option to return to Norway at any time.

The advanced RPG mechanics of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla give you new ways to grow as a warrior and a leader.
You’ll be able to influence the world around you while acquiring new skills and gear to suit your playstyle.
