Assassin's Creed Valhalla Settlement System revealed by Ubisoft Designer

Assassin's Creed Valhalla Settlement System revealed by Ubisoft Designer

The homestead of previous titles goes to new depths, with what looks to be the biggest "base" we've seen.

The countdown to Assassin's Creed Valhalla is well and truly on, with less than four weeks to go until launch, and the game going "Gold" just this week.

As more and more of the game is revealed, we can now get a proper look at the Settlement system that will be seen as your base in the Ubisoft title.

Settlement System

In a content series with IGN, Ubisoft Lead Systems Designer Marc-Antoine Pietri has run through a load of features on Valhalla - including a proper look at the Settlement System.

He said: "The settlement is really your place... it's your home, it's where your friends are."

You will also encounter new adventures in your settlement, with other characters coming to visit you.

You can also grow your settlement, with "a couple of buildings you can build and it's going to unlock some service you can you can use".

This will act as a larger version of homesteads we have seen in previous Assassin's Creed titles like Villa Auditore in Assassin's Creed 2 and Davenport Homestead in Assassin's Creed 3.

Build components like fishing huts for your settlement using your wealth, opening up possibilities to earn even more cash.
