    Nice. Probably my most anticipated game of the year.

    I assume the "...but that's not assassin's creed" crowd is already upset.

    Gonna be hard to top Odyssey for me, but once again, I’m excited for another AC game

    I mean, it's probably gonna be "Odyssey, but vikings". Nothing wrong with that.

    Main character is named Ivor. Can choose to be male or female.

    Timeframe is ninth century AD.

    Ivor is leaving his merry band of Vikings away from their war torn homeland to settle new territory in England. The king featured in the trailer is reportedly King Alfred.

    Game will feature “heavy RPG elements, more so than Odyssey”. Dialogue choices will affect the story.

    There will be a settlement building feature, depending on what you build or add will have impacts on gameplay, opening up new quests and side stories.

    There will be Viking raids. Other settlements and forts can be captured for land & resources.

    Naval gameplay will return. You can cruise your Viking longship and pillage and plunder.

    “Odin” will feature in the game, though Ubisoft is being a bit tight lipped on what that entails. But if you played Odyssey I imagine it will be handled much the same way the other mythical stuff was.

    “Create-A-Viking” feature. You can create a Viking raider to use in battle and share it with friends who can download it and bring into their own game.

    Mini games including duels, drinking games, and “flyting”, which is apparently the Viking version of rap battles.

    Same director who worked on Black Flag and Origins is directing Valhalla.

    Will be available for PS5 at same time as other platform releases.

    Hmm, maybe I'm reading into it wrong, but seems like they're kind of making a fusion of the conquest battles from Odyssey and the fleet missions from Black Flag/Rogue and sending assassins on missions from Revelations to get materials. The battles last time were fine, but after a while I would question why I bothered. The gear rewards wasn't really enticing for me, and later on I'd just use them to wipe my notoriety.

As Eivor, a fierce Viking raider, you’ll lead your clan to build a new home amid England’s fractured dominions. Launching Holiday 2020 on PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will let you raid, conquer, and fight for glory in a mysterious, brutal new land.

    In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, nearly every decision you make will have lasting effects throughout the world. Violence won’t be your only tactic for getting what you want; a silver tongue can be as effective as a steel sword when it comes to finding a home for your people. Shifting England’s balance of power and expanding your influence through diplomacy will likely make you more friends than brute force. Every political alliance you build, combat strategy you employ, and dialogue choice you make will alter your journey.

    You wouldn’t be a Viking raider without raids, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla lets you lead surprise longship attacks to pillage enemy territories for much-needed resources, or launch massive assaults against rival Saxon strongholds. Raids will be more action-packed and brutal than anything Assassin’s Creed has seen before, thanks to a visceral new combat system that lets you bash, dismember, and decapitate your foes. Eivor will be able to dual-wield axes, swords, and even shields against the greatest variety of enemy types ever seen in Assassin’s Creed. And if you want to mix it up, the return of the Hidden Blade allows Eivor to assassinate targets with deadly precision.

    Playable as female or male, Eivor leads a clan of Norse people across the icy North Sea to flee Norway’s endless war and dwindling resources. If they hope to survive, they’ll have to build a new home in the hostile lands of England. There, you’ll provide for yourself and your people by constructing, customizing, and upgrading your settlement with new buildings like barracks, blacksmiths, and tattoo parlors, all while recruiting new members to grow your clan.

    About Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

    In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you are Eivor, a fierce Viking warrior raised on tales of battle and glory. Explore a dynamic and beautiful open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages. Raid your enemies, grow your settlement, and build your political power in your quest to earn your place among the gods in Valhalla.

    Key Features

    • Write Your Viking Saga – Advanced RPG mechanics allow you to shape the growth of your character and influence the world around you. With every choice you make, from political alliances and combat strategy to dialogue and gear progression, you will carve your own path to glory.

    • Visceral Combat System – Dual-wield powerful weapons such as axes, swords, and even shields to relive the ruthless fighting style of the Viking warriors. Brutally decapitate your foes, vanquish them from afar, or stealthily assassinate targets with your hidden blade. Challenge yourself with the most varied collection of deadly enemies ever found in an Assassin’s Creed game.

    • A Dark Age Open World – Sail from the harsh and mysterious shores of Norway to the beautiful but forbidding kingdoms of England and beyond. Immerse yourself in the Viking way of life through fishing, hunting, drinking games, and more.

    • Lead Epic Raids – Launch massive assaults against Saxon troops and fortresses throughout England. Lead your clan in surprise attacks from your longship and pillage enemy territories to bring riches and resources back to your people.

    • Grow Your Settlement – Construct and upgrade buildings that allow for deep customization, including a barracks, blacksmith, tattoo parlor, and more. Recruit new members to your clan and personalize your Viking experience.

    • Mercenary Vikings – Create and customize a unique Viking raider within your clan and share it online with friends to use during their own raids.

    They need to bring back PVP but I'm one of the few people that actually enjoyed it.

    It’s aight, I give them credit for doing a near complete revamp of the AC style but Odyssey took everything Origins did and made it better.

    Well fuck, I had sworn off this series after Black Flag (Which I loved but felt the others were kinda crap. I haven't played Assassin Creed Greek drama yet)

    Vikings though? Man...alright Ubisoft you fucking got me with that.
