Assassin's Creed Valhalla trailer

In the first trailer of Ubisoft we see what awaits us in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. And it is clear that brute violence is not shunned in this game either. 

For example, we see more of the Viking theme that was revealed in a live stream yesterday. We also see action-packed battles in parts of England, which were also hinted at. The iconic Hidden Blade can also be seen at the end of the trailer. The trailer shows that the game is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X.


Players control the hero Eivor, as in the previous two games, it can be either a man or a woman. The emphasis is on building a Viking settlement. The game is set in Scandinavia and Great Britain, where the Vikings come to plunder.

Once again, players have a bird as a companion to explore the area, this time it's a raven. The main character's equipment is customizable, including the tattoos. As in the previous games, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a single player game.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be released in the fall of 2020 for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X, PC and Google Stadia. The first trailer only shows the story, gameplay is not yet visible.
