With invading Vikings, knights, and one seriously angry English king it looks like we will be at the heart of a battle like no other.

Gameplay Reveal Trailer

A gameplay reveal trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has arrived as part of Inside Xbox!

This was on Thursday, 7 May, but did draw criticism from the community for not really showing much “gameplay”.

Create Director for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ashrasf Ismail responded on Twitter:

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Release date – window confirmed

The expected release date is now set at “Holiday 2020”, the same wooly release window that the next-gen consoles currently have.

We know that the new game will be released on all consoles, including the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, both set to land later this year.

The game has no pre-order dates just yet, but it is expected pre-orders will begin soon.

Location

Expect multiple locations in Valhalla across the Viking empire!

The trailer gave us a look at both a Viking village, seemingly in Scandinavia somewhere, as well as the Vikings landing on the coast of England.

There should be a lot of sea-based missions, bringing back memories of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag.

The old kingdoms of England – Wessex, Mercia, East Anglia and Northumbria will all feature, and you also have the option to return to Norway at any time.

As for cities, London, Winchester and York will all be in Valhalla.
