Gaming Brew: ‘Assassins Creed: Valhalla’ Trailer

We’ve been waiting for months, dear readers, and it’s finally here!

One day following an 8-hour livestream on Twitch in which artist extraordinaire BossLogic created some promo art, Ubisoft has finally brought us the first trailer for their upcoming game, Assassins Creed: Valhalla!

We now know that the game will indeed be set in the Viking era. However, 793-1066 AD was a long period of time. That’s 273 years of history in which Ubisoft could set this particular chapter of the Assassins Creed saga. Judging from the trailer however, one could guess that the king who is featured might be Alfred the Great, as he was instrumental in the conversion of the Viking people to Christianity. If this is the case, then the game would have to take place somewhere between 849 and 899 AD. However, I could still be wrong, and we’ll have to wait until the game drops to see for ourselves.

Assassins Creed: Valhalla looks like it could be another deep dive into the nature of the shadow war between the Assassin and Templar factions. With a new setting and another new protagonist (who is yet unnamed), this one feels like it’s going to have the familiar (and brutal) combat of Assassins Creed: Freedom Cry, while giving us a fresh world to explore, and more mythology to experience.

Assassins Creed: Valhalla is set to release during the holidays of 2020 for Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Stadia and PC. Pre-orders are available now.

What are your thoughts on the trailer, dear readers? Let us know in the comments below!
