Does Assassin's Creed Valhalla have Multiplayer?

In short - sort of...

If we think about what we traditionally consider multiplayer, the first thought would be games like Call of Duty: Warzone or Fortnite.

BUCK THE TREND: AC Valhalla's multiplayer function is a little different

There's a co-op and player vs player element to the games where you ultimately compete for points.

In this sense, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is unique.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla doesn't have traditional multiplayer, in the way that you can battle against other assassins online.

Rather, the multiplayer element is more focused around creating a Viking mercenary.

AND MY AXE (FOR A PRICE): Create your own custom mercenary and share with friends

The feature lets you customise and share a Viking mercenary for friends to use (or hire) for raids.

Your mercenaries will fight alongside other players and you'll get the opportunity to 'reap the spoils' of war - according to the Ubisoft website.

So, traditional multiplayer - no. A unique twist on multiplayer - yes!

How can players customise their raiders?

If we go by the other games in the series, customisation could be extensive.

We could expect to see anything from armour to weapons, hairstyles to tattoos!

Being able to customise your own mercenary could give some players a real chance to create their perfect Viking avatar.

Seeing them fight alongside your friends could look absolutely epic too!
