The most recent installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and dedicated fans of the series have been looking forward to its Xbox Series X release this November.
The marketing team for the upcoming title has been working extra hard to keep the hype ongoing. In fact, Ubisoft has released a new trailer that deep dives into the gameplay of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
The deep dive trailer shows off many of the game’s elements, such as world exploration, Viking combat, the Ravensthorpe settlement, Eivor’s journey, and player choice. In the trailer, you’ll be able to see the core elements you can expect to see in the game, all while providing you a sneak peek of the upcoming title’s mechanics and side activities.
One of the things the video highlights upon is Eivor, who is introduced as the war chief of the Raven clan. Eivor is known for journeying to England just to establish a home for themselves.
As mentioned, the trailer features the settlement of Ravensthorpe, and we can infer from this that this settlement is where the center of Eivor’s story takes place. Ravensthorpe plays a significant role in the story of Valhalla, so much so that it serves as the “intersecting point for many of Valhalla’s interwoven storylines.”
Not only that, but the settlement is vital when it comes to the player’s progression story-wise. There, you will be able to buy items from merchants, as well as meet characters who will be able to provide you with new quests.
On another note, the Viking settlement in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is something that players can upgrade. In addition, it’s also possible to unlock new structures for the area, some examples being barracks, a shipyard, a tattooist, and so much more.
The Hidden Ones’ bureau is also a part of the content you can unlock. This bureau is where Eivor is assigned targets to get rid of by the game’s ancient version of the Assassin order. You will play your part in ensuring that the settlement continues to grow, although its development also means that new enemy factions will try and attack it.
As such, you will have to do everything you can to fend them off. In line with this, Eivor has one main goal in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and that is to overcome and take control of England and its four main kingdoms, namely Mercia, East Anglia, Northumbria, and Wessex.
As you continue to explore every inch of the world of Valhalla, you will be able to obtain different kinds of armor and weapons from the “four corners of the world,” one example is the legendary sword Excalibur.
There are so many things you can do in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. If you’re tired of fighting, you can participate in drink offs, pet animals, play the dice game known Orlog, or even visit other realms with the help of the clan seer.
England through the lens of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will surely be a wild ride, with a variety of characters and activities that will keep you immersed in the game’s story.
