The next Assassin’s Creed was revealed by Ubisoft through a livestream where graphic designer BossLogic worked some magic to create artwork for the game. The world premiere trailer is set to go live at 8am PT/11am ET tomorrow morning on April 30. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal, with support from 14 other studios around the world.
Odds are that since it will most likely follow Vikings, we’ll probably be exploring some Scandinavian or Nordic countries like Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, or Sweden. When it comes to specifics, we don’t know which locations may or may not be in it.
We don’t know a time period either, but considering Vikings were prominent between the late 8th to late 11th centuries, expect sometime between then.
The gameplay will likely be more similar to that of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Odyssey than its other predecessors with a heavy focus on RPG elements. Dialogue options with branching narratives may return.
Release date and platforms
The next Assassin’s Creed will probably release sometime in Fall 2020 judging from past precedent. If Ubisoft doesn’t want another Unity/Rogue debacle, the game could be released on both current-gen and next-gen platforms along with PC. It’s unclear if COVID-19 may have caused any internal delays.
The series’ deepest foray into RPG yet
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was the most ambitious entry in the series to date, and it paid off tremendously. A sprawling world full of activities and secrets awaits you in Ancient Greece.
