Assassin's Creed: Valhalla's Setting and Exploration look VERY encouraging for fans!

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is releasing on Tuesday, 17 November 2020.

This means we'll likely get a current and next-gen version of the game. The difference will only be graphical updates and changes.

But how will Ubisoft make this next Assassin's Creed the best one yet?


Valhalla's storyline has the possibility to deliver some amazing characters and narrative.

It seems we'll also be travelling across Europe as part of our Scandinavian clan. Giving the opportunity for plenty of post-launch content!

Location and Exploration

We can expect a similar "Sailing" mechanic from Black Flag to return in Valhalla. This will likely be used to traverse Europe.

This was a great feature that has been implemented into a few titles now, including Origins and Odyssey!

We hope Valhalla will have a fully open world, where we can travel to different areas of Europe in real-time.

This would add to the immersion of the game, but could get tedious and repetitive.

Finally, Valhalla has a lot of potential and inspiration to create some really cool cosmetics.

From Ancient Egypt to Industrial England, we have the chance to get our hands on some great outfits from previous titles.

We know Ubisoft our happy to take inspiration from previous games, regardless of the time period.

If Valhalla takes a more "RPG" style progression system, we'll be able to mix and match different parts of our outfit to create some awesome styles.
