The next game in the highly successful Ubisoft saga will be set in the Viking wars and will go on sale in late 2020 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, Stadia and PC. The cinematic trailer for Assassin’s Creed Vallhalla (on these lines) has just been released, just one day after the presentation of the first concept art for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla , composed in a rigorous direct by the artist Bosslogic.
The game will star Eivor , a ferocious Viking legend (you can choose the sex), who will have to flee from a Norway plagued by famine and scarcity, exhausted by wars that never end. Along with his fleet, he will sail to England, where he will have to deal with the hostile environment with warring kingdoms. This new chapter will again opt for the open world, this time in the darkest England.
As Vikings, they will be able to use their drakar to lead raids and plunder their enemies in search of resources and wealth, prosper their settlement and consolidate their political power. They will fight with a renewed combat system, which allows brandishing weapons with two hands to face the greatest variety of enemies ever seen in the saga. Everything will be little to earn a place among the gods in Valhalla ”, explains Ubisoft in the press release.

We would also like to thank the other 14 development studios from around the world. You already know who you are; we are very grateful for your dedication ”.

Another war for the Vikings
The first conceptual image shows two different scenarios : on the left, the ocean with the snow-capped mountains in the background. Viking ships ply the waters in search of new lands; On the right, a ruined castle succumbs to the fight of two different factions. And from the front, a warrior with long hair and a bearded face, holding an ax with the symbol of the assassins. It is Eivor, the new hero.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has not yet announced the official launch date or the platforms on which it will be released. The previous installment, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, was released in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Later it also reached Stadia.
