Ubisoft have unveiled a new story trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that reveals more about protagonist Eivor’s family issues and own quest for glory. One of my favourite aspects of the Assassin’s Creed series has always been the narrative and how it utilises historical figures and events to shape its game world, so I’m excited to see how Eivor’s tale will intertwine with some of those real-life happenings.
Check out the trailer down below:
The story trailer offers players a new glimpse of Eivor, a fierce Viking raider torn between their duty to their brother Sigurd and a personal quest for glory. Driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources, Eivor’s clan must secure a future among the kingdoms of England. During their journey, Eivor will come across the Hidden Ones, and face powerful figures including Saxon kings and the warmongering sons of Ragnar Lothbrok, as well as a mysterious, growing threat that could determine England’s destiny.
With development led by Ubisoft Montreal, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla offers players the captivating experience of playing as Eivor, a legendary Viking raider, in a beautiful and mysterious open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages. Players can take advantage of new features, including raids, weapon dual-wielding, and settlement building.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is coming to the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on November 10th 2020 – it will also be coming to the PlayStation 5 on November 19th in the UK. Find out more on the official website through this link.
