Assassin's Creed Odyssey introduced some brilliant new features to the series and it looks like Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be continuing this trend in several different ways...

Not only will the new game likely be more RPG based like it's two predecessors, but the main character (named Eivor) will be very customisable...

Let's take a closer look at what we know so far!

Is Eivor a female?

Yes and no... Eivor the protagonist and main playable character in Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a "Viking who participated in the Viking raids in England".

The name of your character is always going to be Eivor, however, you can choose their gender - presumably, this means, just like in Assassin's Creed Odyssey you will be able to play as a female character.

However, unlike the previous game, the two characters aren't long lost twins... but are in fact just the same character! Rather like 'V' in Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077.

The statue showcases the fearsome female Eivor in all her Viking glory and boy, does she look awesome.

The photo of a statue - a 30cm high resin figurine - shows Eivor's similar Viking style hair, plus an amazing set of fur and leather armour.
