Assassin's Creed

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the next entry in Ubisoft’s open-world franchise, having officially been announced as part of a recent stream. Seemingly taking the series to Viking Times, the debut trailer is set to arrive in a matter of hours, and we’re incredibly excited to see what it brings to the table

So, we’ve compiled everything we know about Assassins Creed Valhalla including all the latest news, rumours, release date, gameplay and more.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla newsCatch the reveal trailer tomorrow

The livestream is over, concluding with a gorgeous piece of artwork being completed and confirmation that the debut trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be arriving tomorrow, and we can’t wait. You can catch the trailer tomorrow once it drops

Assassins Creed Valhalla release dateWhen is it coming out?

Ubisoft is yet to formally acknowledge the existence of a new Assassins Creed beyond a few in-game teasers in The Division 2, so a release date is probably a while off.

However, a recent leak hints at a September 29, 2020 launch date with PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X as platforms. We imagine PC will also be thrown into the mix, too

Assassins Creed Valhalla settingWhere does it take place?

A recent leak emerging on Reddit adds further depth to a setting pertaining to Viking Times, with player set to explore a vast number of different locations spread across Europe. Much like previous games, its set to be positively massive – including cities such as London, Paris and Kiev. How this will be expressed across one cohesive map remains to be seen, as does whether this leak is actually true or not

Assassins Creed Valhalla gameplayHow could it play?

Valhalla will allegedly expand upon the existing Assassins Creed formula while also introducing a bunch of new mechanics such as four player co-operative play and a class-based progression system which will see you take on a variety of different roles which fit your desired playstyle

It seems there will be multiple types of hooded murderers doing the rounds this time. The co-operative element will apparently be drop-in/drop-out, meaning friends and strangers could join your adventure at ll the quests within it

Combat will include far more weapon classes alongside a durability system similar to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Depending on the class you pick, you can equip and purchase new skills and abilities for use in both stealth and combat. We imagine there will be plenty of options to choose from, too.

The Hidden Blade will seemingly make its long-awaited return, too. As will travelling by boat, although it will now be based more on exploration than combat, which often felt like a barrier to discovering the world in Odyssey. Oh, and those pesky level-locked regions are gone, meaning you arent gated off from large parts of the continent because of overpowered foes

Assassin's Creed Odyssey

If youre a fan of stealth in Assassins Creed, it seems it will have an increased presence in Valhalla. Various new layers will be added to sneaking mechanics with the player being able to cover themselves in mud, snow or hiding in different natural formations. If we can navigate most of the game without being caught well be chuffed

A faction/reputation system will also determine whether characters recognise you depending on clothes being worn. According to the leak, specific quests and locations will be tied to the system, with players choosing to pursue a certain line of missions to their natural conclusion. This sounds like a cool idea, especially if it leads to additional loot and other goodies

Other rumoured mechanics include settlements across the world you’ll have an option to conquer alongside settlements you can occupy, using them for trade and resources while you’re off doing other things. Odin’s Sight will replace the bird’s-eye view feature from Origins and Odyssey, allowing you to scope out major locations for enemies and treasure before moving in yourself.

You will play as Jora, who is said to be the sole playable character this time around. You will select their gender in the opening moments before following their story across several decades. The leak we’ve been discussing doesn’t delve into much more beyond that, although we imagine it will be packed with imaginative set-pieces and plenty of outlandish examples of Norse Mythology.
