Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Announced


The next game in Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to release this holiday season.

Developed by the same team at Ubisoft Montreal that led the development of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Origins, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has players living through the saga of the fierce Viking raider Eivor. Raised on tales of glory and battle, this Viking experience will transport players to an open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages. Along the way, players will be able to join in raids, can grow their settlement, build their power, and expand their influence.
