It’s official: Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla officially released on November 10 to coincide with the launch of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, a whole week before the previously announced release date of November 17.
The game will also be launched on Steam, the Epic Games Store, Google Stadia and PS4 on the same day, and a PS5 version will be published to coincide with the launch.
Like most other games of the franchise, this game puts players in the skin of a new assassin. This time, this assassin is Ivor, a viking leading raids on the English coast. Ivor can be played as a man or woman, as in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.
As in the previous games, there is also a modern scenario, putting again the character back Layla when she explores the story while trying to discover a vast conspiracy featuring murderers, the Templar’s and a Prehistoric civilization, the ISU, which created humanity with the help of advanced science.
With twelve narcotizing games in the only main series, plus another handle of derivative titles, books, comics and movie, it can certainly be an intimidating task of trying to stay abreast of the tradition of the series. But the fans of the series so far, we have a lot of reasons to be excited with Valhalla, with the widest variety of types of enemies, new combat capacities such as a harpoon or a system of Stunning, double handling and opportunity to search for pagan ruins to discover the secrets of the region and improve both yourself and your colony. Valhalla seems to double the elements of RPG present in some previous games and work hard to create a combat system that is authentic in the tradition of Vikings.
