Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is about a month away, and today’s new trailers are trying to answer a lot of your burning questions. The first trailer is a deep dive into the main components of the game. With a little over seven minutes, it’s not short, but it packs a lot of info. It starts with the land itself. You’ll develop and improve a settlement in England and make agreements with the four kingdoms there.
There is a strong political intrigue flavor to these encounters, but that’s just part of the story. Beyond treaties, each of those kingdoms will have strong characters and plot lines flowing through it. Eivor, whether you play as female, male, or switch between at any time during the game, will have to make choices. The trailer emphasizes player choice in the story, settlement, and abilities.
The skill tree is briefly shown, but you can pick the abilities that match your play style. One of them allows you to send your dog to attack enemies. That’s a dog that deserves a good petting, as combat is a brutal affair with decapitations and different weapons. Materials to improve your settlement and glorious gear, including the legendary Excalibur, are your rewards for prevailing in battle and exploring the map. As an aside, there are some beautiful locations shown.
It’s a great overview of the game, and I’ll leave it at the top. If you want meaty gameplay, check out the trailer at the bottom. It starts with a raid on a monastery and goes on to show you engaging in other game activities like playing a dice game. At over an hour, it’s a much more comprehensive look at the game.
We are closing in on the release date very soon. You can start your Viking fantasy when Assassin’s Creed Valhalla releases on November 10th.
