Assassin's Creed Valhalla Gameplay

In Assassin's Creed Valhalla, we'll play as Eivor a Viking warrior, as we plunder and raid our way through England's Dark Ages.

Take a closer look at Eivor in the Story Trailer below:

Although Eivor is an experienced warrior and raider, a key objective of the game is to build your own settlement in England and grow your political influence in the vast and dynamic land.
