The Vikings may be long gone but Ubisoft is insisting that if we all do our part, we can bring Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to life. All it will take is for us all to start training like Vikings, eating like Vikings, and dressing like Vikings. I’m guessing that most of us wouldn’t really know where to start. Do we throw out the TVs? Burn our cars and steal some horses? Pillage and… more?
Thankfully, no, there’s no burning of cars yet and you won’t need to go raiding the neighbouring town for their supplies. Though, when the toilet paper runs dry…
Ubisoft has put together a guide for every wannabe-Viking and sent it our way in the form of some very detailed PDFs. The guides will show you how to train hard like a Viking to get ripped so that you may do some ripping of your own. If you want to eat like a Viking, the guide will also show you how to prepare a typical Viking meal or two. If you just want to look the part, there’s a guide for sorting your raggedy hair into a respectable Viking barnet. All you need to do is click the images down below to be taken to the relevant PDF.
Not bathing for weeks at a time is optional, and I’m already way ahead on that one. (Joke. It’s days at most.)
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla releases on November 10th, 2020 for PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. The PS5 version will release on November 12th in North America before it reaches European territories on November 19th.
