Trailer Release Date

Thanks to a Tweet from @AssassinsCreed, we know the official reveal trailer for Valhalla will be released on Thursday, 30 April.

This will be on their social channel 11am ET / 4pm BST.

The live stream has already started:

Location

This is not 100% confirmed, but expect various locations - over land and sea - during the Viking age.

The "live" reveal image showed us Vikings battling English soldiers, or so it is believed, which suggests a possible Saxon invasion.

With what we presume to be the protagonist yielding a glorious axe, we can't wait to hack-and-slash our way through some Saxon templars.

The game has no official release date as of yet, but that could change after the reveal trailer.

It is expected to arrive this autumn, before the release of Next Gen consoles.

It is rumoured for release on Tuesday, 29 September, according to TrustedReviews.

Next Gen Consoles - PS5 & Xbox Series X

The same article from TrustedReviews suggests that the game will appear on Next Gen also.

Don't expect this to be from launch for PlayStation 5 & Xbox Series X, but perhaps a remaster of some sort in the new year of 2021.
