Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Time Period: Viking Era, Links to Origins and Odyssey, Future and More!
Ubisoft’s upcoming triple A title is set during the Viking Era, a long awaited period for the series!
This showed us that the game will be set in the Viking Era, around 793-1066.
This will give us more story detailing how the Assassin’s Creed brotherhood traversed the world and found themselves influencing huge events in history.
This time period is one that fans have wanted for a little while now. Clearly Ubisoft has started listening to the fans to deliver content that the players want.
We’re excited to get our hands on the next episode of the AC saga, with no official release date, we’ll have to wait for more information from Ubisoft regarding a possible date.
This seems like it will give the game a more realistic and gritty feel when compared to the games set in Ancient Greece and Italy.
The Viking era is between the years 793 to 1066 so we won’t be getting any fancy tech, as we’ve seen in the previous games.
Links to Origins and Odyssey
AC Origins is set in Egypt in around the year 40-50 BC. This game’s setting was the oldest until Odyssey came out.
Odyssey is set in Ancient Greece in the year 431 BC, making it the furthest back in time, of all the AC games.
Future of Assassin’s Creed
We’ve experienced almost every time period in the Assassin’s Creed Saga.
Some locations that we may see in the future are Russia and Japan, and India. This has been explored in the Chronicles series but hasn’t been made into a fully-fledged title.
We may also see a game set in Mongolia, based around Genghis Khan.
We know of Darim from the first Assassin’s Creed game, who is known for killing Genghis Khan. This could lead to an interesting story and character for both Darim and Altair.
